Eastern Eye London Rd; Painted Ladies, Roundhill Crescent

Wednesday 27th May. Grey, cold and wet. . .

. . .but yesterday, between showers, the sun came out. An influx of Painted Lady butterlfies, something I haven't seen for years, ten or a dozen of them, playing and feeding around Val's red valerians.

Update on the Another London Rd affair: Sunday, with Tarquin's help, Peter and I leafleted, to let the people know about the Council's consultation document, coming to this address soon. Up the hill and down the hill, then we all went to lunch at the Eastern Eye, to reward ourselves suitably*. It's important that plenty of people tell them that we want regeneration, but on a human scale: and for the work to be done incrementally, with minimum disruption. The Council's position is predictable: Tescos will provide "environmentally friendly" sweeteners downstream, if they get planning permission for their wacking big Stalinist project and huge carpark, and that should shut everybody up. But the pollution, the creation of a barren hinterland for the Superstore, the destruction of small businesses, and incidentally the defiance of the Council's own development guidelines will remain the same.

So please, if you are reading this and are local, make the effort.

*Anyway, Eastern Eye, London Road Brighton 07830204778/01273685151: an undiscovered gem, excellent South Indian food, original dishes, friendly service best Masala Dosa I've tasted in a long time. The only Indian restaurant in the area, if not in our city, that I'd reccommend.
