The Mission Statement of the New Brighton Project is "To foster New Brighton as an inclusive, healthy, stimulating and co-operative community." What We Do: We run events in New Brighton: the monthly Festival Market in the Mall, on the first Saturday of the month; the annual Christmas parade, Puppet Festival and International Festival. We run weekly groups: Pirates pre-school music group and The Golden Oldies Movies Club. We also run numerous one-off events, such as clothes swaps, film evenings, talks and community discussions. We try to make it easy for the community to network and share ideas by producing the fortnightly email newsletter and The Wave- a monthly printed edition newsletter. The New Brighton Project is like a tree, with many offshoots. The local gardens, museum, art gallery and craft co-op have begun as part of the NBP. We offer help with the development and publicity of other community organisations in the area and regard networking and liason work as an important part of our role.
