OUR next Clare Project Posh Nosh monthly meal out, on Tuesday, September 2, is at The Eagle in Gloucester Road. The Eagle is a friendly local pub in Brighton's North Laine area. At our August meeting more than 20 people enjoyed a good-value meal together at the Camelford Arms. More details on our Posh Nosh page.
A DOZEN people from the Clare Project joined us for
Clare Project afternoon tea
in the cafe at the Chapel Royal in North Street, Brighton
on bank holiday Monday, August 25. We ran the cafe ourselves and served more than 70 customers on a wet and windy afternoon. Our Clare Project News and Facebook pages have more details. Our next coffee morning is on Saturday September 27
*TRANS Pride 2014 proved a great success in July and many people attended our Clare Project stall at the community fair in New Steine Gardens to chat and pick up information about our activities. You can find more details about Trans Pride in our News section. We raised £60 from our raffle there - Samantha and Donna won our two big Clare bears. Wendy, Cara, Ann and Karen had other prizes.
THE Clare Project has a new chair, Dr Sam Hall. Taking up the position, Sam said: "I am proud to have been chosen to represent the Clare Project. It has a vital role to play, not only providing a place where the trans community can come together but also as a voice representing that community in the wider world."
Sam takes over from Steph Scott who has been chair for eight years. The Clare Project committee acknowledged the tireless work that Steph has done to make the Clare Project a respected organisation committed to improving the lives of transgender people in Brighton and beyond.
* WEEKLY trans swimming sessions take place each Friday at the Brighton Swimming Centre, Eastern Road, Brighton from 8-9.30pm (tel 01273 434400). Cost per session is just £2.55. Here's how to get there.
