A COMMUNITY centre that supports vulnerable people in one of the most deprived parts of the city could be forced to close.

The Whitehawk Inn provides adult education classes, support and advice for people living in east Brighton. But the centre, owned by Brighton Housing Trust, looks set to close at the end of March because the charity can no longer afford to run it.

Residents and service users said they were saddened by the end of a vital amenity in Whitehawk.

Present: Anne Glow Jainene Healy Andy Silsby
