Andrew & Max’s Tea Garden



Several years ago, Maxwell Clarke and his partner Andrew Doig created a wonderful courtyard garden on land behind 22 Lewes Crescent. Most years they open it to the public as a tea garden to raise funds for charity.  It was open last weekend during the Spring Bank Holiday. For three days the sun shone, the rain held off and large numbers of visitors enjoyed tea and home-made cakes (mostly made by Max, with help from friends and neighbours) in the tranquil setting of the garden.

The beneficiaries last weekend were MindOut, the Brighton-based LGBTQ mental health service, and Sussex Nightstop, a project that arranges for young people in danger of street homelessness to be put up for the night by volunteer hosts. Each charity will receive a cheque for £565.

Andrew is the KTE Secretary.

Your Board Needs You!

Since the AGM in 2023, we have lost four key members from the Board of Directors.

The Board therefore welcomes residents interested in joining the board to submit their CV and a statement of what their skills would contribute to the skill set of the board by the 24th of March.

The Board would also welcome enquiries and would be happy to discuss what being a member of the Board of KTE entails,
in advance of the submission deadline.
