Dear Editors

I absolutely love receiving your newsletter through the door and I was really excited to read the letters section in the last edition of The Whistler. Talk about dramatic: I absolutely loved Stephen’s response to the Sally May article! Kept me at the edge of my seat. I must admit when I read Sally’s obit I thought it seemed a little heavy-handed and was wondering at the time if there would be any lashback. (more…)

Dear Editor,

With reference to Tom Sargant’s tribute to Sally May in the June/July edition of The Whistler, I completely agree with Tom in the way the 7 dials area has changed over the last decade. I have said for many years that one day Brighton will become, ostensibly, a suburb of London. From the time I was a child I have always been connected with this part of Brighton. Over a period of fifteen years my mother and I lived at various different addresses in the 7 dials area. In 1967 my mother moved to Southwick and I moved to London and then on to Sweden. (more…)

Letters to Whistler

I am amazed to find the Bath Street resurfacing finished today [5th April]. In under 10 hours the whole top surface was all removed, fresh Tarmac laid, new lines and signs repainted on the new surface and the evening rush-hour traffic storming around it at 5-30pm. Compare that with the recent excessive disruption that took place last year on the Seven Dials round-about which went on for weeks.

Dear Editor

Now that the Seven Dials area has been greatly improved with the new road layout and the removal of railings etc, there is one building that spoils the effect and that is the Co-op on the corner of Dyke Road and Buckingham Place, where the ground floor windows are blocked up, giving a run-down, derelict look to that part of the road. I wonder if the Association in its official capacity could perhaps try and persuade the Co-op to fit some dummy windows here. The cost would be very little to a company of that size but I think it would surely have a great improving effect on the look of the area. Yours sincerely, (more…)

Letters to The Whistler

Dear Editors

Being a Hanoverian, I was lucky to come across your article on Aubrey Beardsley in the latest Whistler, and wanted to let you and your readers know that I quite regularly present Beardsley events.  At Brighton & Hove Museums our collections contain a few items relating to him including two original drawings, and although these can’t be on permanent display for conservation reasons I am able to show them occasionally as part of the Bite Size talk series at Brighton Museum.

Dear Editor

We read with interest Ann Rushworth Lown’s letter in the October/November Whistler, regarding the traffic problems on Surrey Street. We sympathise. As nearby residents, we are also experiencing the spillover effects of the traffic logjams around the station, which have worsened since the Brighton Station Gateway scheme.  (more…)

Letters to The Whistler

Dear Editor,

I was wondering whether I could get some help please. I live in Bingley,West Yorkshire. Fifteen years ago I had a stroke and now, as a rehabilitation exercise, I am trying to trace my family history.

In 1860 a distant ancestor died at “Beresford Lodge, West Hill, Brighton” and I am trying to find out whether this property still exists. Could you or your members locate it for me perhaps?

Thank you,
Godfrey Lomas (more…)
