Nearly eight years since the February 22, 2011, earthquake wrecked shops on the corner of Estuary Rd and Bridge St, new commercial and entertainment activities may only be weeks away. The empty plot of land on the corner is set to be filled with a community common ground. Live music and food from food vendors will be on offer and it is hoped that it will be up and running before Christmas. The common ground will be managed by the Bridge South Brighton Trust, the food will be provided by the Food Collective and Sustain South Brighton will organise the events. Sustain South Brighton community activator Samantha Fay said the common ground was exactly what the community needed. “To have that common ground, that gathering space where people can come together and hang out and share knowledge and learn from each other, that’s going to be amazing to have,” she said. •Turn to page 4 Gentle on the Eye SteriLid Eyelid Cleanser Used in the treatment of blepharitis (an inflammatory condition of the eyelids) and dry eye.
