I’m glad to say there was quite a throng at the launch of the North Laine Book. Five years in the making, this collaborative effort by many residents and long-term lovers of the North Laine, is a story well worth telling. I was very pleased to meet many of the contributors including Selma Montford who had the initial idea for the book. Published by Brighton Town Press.

About North Laine Community Association
What we are and what we do

The North Laine Community Association (NLCA) is one of the older community associations in Brighton. lt was set up in 1976 when the area was under threat of a motorway and has been active in campaigning for the residents of the area ever since.

Together with the North Laine Traders Association, it provides a vital and important link in the consultation process and has been involved in discussions about many of the major schemes that affect this important and vibrant area.
