Brighton’s Resource Centre for community groups is celebrating its 40th Anniversary with a week-long exhibition at the Jubilee Library next January. Staff at the Centre are appealing for community or voluntary groups who have used the Centre’s services at any time during the last four decades to send in their memories and photographs for inclusion in the exhibition.
Did you hire a van from the Resource Centre in the 1970s?
Maybe you went to a punk concert in their original building at the top of North Road? Did the Resource Centre print your newsletter on their offset litho machine in the 1980s?
Or does your school hire one of their candy floss machines every year for the Christmas fair?
Resource Centre worker Dani Ahrens said: “The Resource Centre is one of the things that makes Brighton & Hove special – we are always taking phone calls from people in other areas who wish they could hire our equipment, or who have found our information useful. We think our services must have made a difference to thousands of local people over the last 40 years, and we would like to invite them to help us celebrate by sharing their memories of the Centre.”
The exhibition will be on display in the Jubilee Library foyer from 16th to 22nd January, 2017. As well as covering the history of the Centre, it will promote the organisation’s current work and aims to reach new groups who have not used the Centre before.
If you have memories or photographs to contribute, please email the Resource Centre on firstname.lastname@example.org by 16th December.
