The My Brighton and Hove website was launched in 2000 to celebrate the Millennium and now has thousands of pages. Every week, people add new memories, photos, knowledge and opinions about the city – as it is today and as it was in the past. The site is edited by volunteers and has won numerous awards.
We invite you to add your photos, memories, and stories of Brighton and Hove life. Find out more about us or get in touch.
It is some time since any comments were added to this page but it is very poignant as the Brighton Ambulance Station is scheduled to close later this year. Once we get back to some normality, would be happy to arrange a visit for one last time and to the superb new facility being built at Falmer. This will be known as Chamberlain House. I would be really interested in any further pictures and stories because we want our new Base to reflect some of the history of Brighton, Hove and Lewes Stations. firstname.lastname@example.org

Hi Madeleine. You’re a name from the past! I was in the same class as your sister Jeanne – way back when! I came to parties in your home in Adelaide Crescent… & remember all the teachers you have mentioned.
I have a Facebook group – ‘Blessed Sacrament Convent’ – do join
Kelly’s 1974 shows it under ‘Gift Shops’ -The Gay Gift Shop, 41 Market St. This is on the corner of Nile St , now a cafe/coffee shop?
How did I forget Kelly’s! The 1973 directory states the shop was at 41, Market Street – at the corner with Nile Street – but it’s possible the numbering has changed since then, along with the redevelopment of the late ‘80s.
