The Kemp Town Bicentennial Book 1823-2023 was published in May and was very warmly received.
More than half the print run of 200 was sold in the
first few days. “It’s an absolute delight,” one Chichester Terrace resident wrote, “and what wonderful
photographs – both from the past and the present. I may have lived here 40 years but only know a fraction of the stories that the book includes so it will be much enjoyed.”
From now on, copies will only be available from the Kemp Town Bookshop at £30 each.
Six stunning pictures from the book, taken by Lewes Crescent resident Janine Nahapiet, have been extracted for postcards which will be available from Jonathan Rolls at 50p each, when the office re-opens fully.
Blank on the reverse side, they are ideal for writing thank-you notes and invitations.
The Board is also hoping that Christmas cards, featuring a snowy garden scene taken some years ago by Ben Borrett, will also be available for purchase towards the end of the year.
