An overview of The Round Hill Society

The society was formed in 1999 and holds an annual get-together open to all Round Hill residents as well as organising local events such as street parties, open gardens and carol singing.








































The Round Hill Society is a member of The Brighton and Hove Heritage Commission and sponsors our Secretary (Rob Stephenson) to legitimise his membership of our city's Blue Plaque Committee.

Our printed newspaper Round Hill Reporter is delivered to Round Hill residents free of charge every three months. Its aim is to keep residents in the area in touch with local news, events and each other.

Every effort is made on this site and in the regular newsletter, to present a fair and balanced view while aiming to accept any material from Round Hill residents.
