Homeless in Brighton

Last week en route to Brighton I spotted some cheeky pidgeons flying in and out of a broken window of an empty top floor flat. I dread to think what the interior must look like if the wildlife have taken over an empty property. Down below the people in the offices were probably unaware of the ‘squatters’ above. What a waste!
While the pidgeons were enjoying a dry and sheltered accomodation a young man and his dog had taken up residence in a doorway on North St. I wondered how long he’d been there and how he cares for himself and his pal. He looked snug, wrapped up well but where’s the justice here? Wildlife living in a flat and a man and his dog living in a doorway?
I regularly see a man in Lewes wandering around in layers on clothing, filthy dirty avoiding the stares of everyone around, muttering to himself. What’s his story?
I don’t know how I can help, I deperately wanted to help the man in North St. As for the pidgeons, well they should be evicted and the landlord should make good his property. Empty houses should not be empty.

The Woolly bus nears completion

Thank you to all who sponsored me, I raised £46.00 for the Martlets Hospice and knitted ten squares, not many I know but every little helps! On August 20th the double decker bus covered in knitted squares will tour Brighton to raise awareness of the hospice. The squares will then be made into blankets and shipped out to Africa to keep AIDS victims warm and cosy.
