The home site of the Round Hill Society, a community group of the residents of Round Hill in Brighton, England. The site contains information about the area, latest news and reflections on life in Round Hill.
Although www.streetparty.org.uk is a helpful site, it is also a good idea to seek assistance from a local resident who has organised a street party before. 8 people pulled together to plan The Round Hill Society's 10th Anniversary Street Party.
Roads we have closed off before include D'Aubigny Road, Mayo Road and on rarer occasions Crescent Road. If one of the organisers lives in the selected street, it helps with the availability of electric power, safe overnight storage, etc.
Plenty of help is needed.
