Ethnic minority groups' centre opened in Brighton
2:30pm Monday 24th September 2012 in News
After 12 years of planning, the Black and Minority Ethnic Community Partnership (BMECP) has been officially opened.
The dignitaries were out in force at the launch with the Lord Lieutenant of East Sussex, Peter Field, performing the official honours.
The centre, which is based in Fleet Street, Brighton, will provide an affordable and welcoming space for community groups.
They have four offices and four flexible rooms on site available for everything from training and meetings, to celebrations and seminars.
Among the special guests present were Brighton Pavilion MP Caroline Lucas and Brighton and Hove mayor Bill Randall .
The community group has received support over the past few years from Brighton and Hove City Council and the now defunct South East England Development Agency.
