More than 6,000 homes across east Brighton have received a copy of a new directory of local businesses.

The booklet, produced by the eb4U regeneration agency, is now in its second year and features 160 entrepreneurs.

Its aim is to raise awareness of the multitude of good quality businesses in an area covering Bates Estate, Moulsecoomb and Whitehawk.

Whitehawk resident Nicola Jane Holt, who runs the Drivewise School of Motoring, said: "Since the launch of the directory I've seen a boost to my business and have had lots of new customers."

East Brighton residents and companies can get free business support and entry into the directory by contacting Lorraine Bell on 01273 296767.
