SUPERSTAR Fatboy Slim has donated one of his limited edition signed vinyl album packages in a special “pizza box” to raise money for Hove Lagoon’s facelift.

Brighton’s much-loved DJ, real name Norman Cook, has worked alongside the Friends of Hove Lagoon (FoHL) to transform the area into a vibrant and green community space.

The pizza box has a special remastered 180g vinyl album and CD of his hugely-popular second album, “You’ve Come a Long Way, Baby” , and a T-shirt.

Norman told the Argus what Hove Lagoon means to him. He said: “The lagoon is very important to me. Both of my kids love the lagoon and I live at the edge of the lagoon, plus I own a cafe here.

“All the time we have a sense of community at Hove Lagoon. The cafe has become a nice get together area for everyone.

“Over time, the lagoon has grown into a community area.

“We are uniting businesses, residents, community groups and the council to make this a better place.

“It has so much potential.

“Brighton is important to me because it’s my home. I am very proud of the city.

“The priority for Hove Lagoon is to make it a hang out place, and to recreate the landscaping, planting, and put in more lighting at night to improve security.”

Other Brighton artists have also joined in to help revamp the lagoon.

The city’s Cassette Lord, real name Martin Middleton, has donated a painted mural on wood, which was donated by local building supplier Chandlers, for the auction.

The artwork will be divided into smaller pieces and sold separately at the auction, which will take place on December 12 at Brighton General Auctions in Warren Road.

Sue Johnson, Secretary of FoHL, said: “We’re incredibly thankful to Norman and Martin for so generously donating such wonderful items to Friends of Hove Lagoon in order to raise money for the much-needed green revamp of Hove Lagoon.

“We’re also really grateful to Brighton General Auctions, who have agreed to auction the items.

“Our community is really getting behind this project and we’re hopeful that the auction will help boost the funds that we need in order to turn it into a reality.”

The new look of the Hove Lagoon was designed by Nicholas Dexter of la.nd studio and includes natural plantings, wildflowers and a herb garden.

In September, Norman and members of the FoHL held the first LagoonFest which saw hundreds of people going along to enjoy a nice day out.

The event helped raise £8,000 which went towards the lagoon’s planting scheme which includes natural plants, wildflowers and a herb garden.

Liz Ward, a member of FoHL, previously explained why the lagoon had been sidelined. She said: “Hove Lagoon is at the edge of Brighton and it has been neglected, so not many people come to this side of the city.

“We want to turn it into a popular destination choice for everyone.”

People can bid online and all items will be available to view online from December 7.
