On the morning of Sunday 3rd April (10:30 - 12:30) we'll be having a relaxed social gathering to walk along the seafront and eventually sit and drink tea, eat cake and perhaps do a cohousing related activity.
If you have any problems finding us, or would like to meet us at one of the cafe's from about 10:50am and would like to know where we've settled, feel free to call Julian on 07855422414.
Ultimately we believe in the importance of people coming together and so we host an informal social (virtualy) every month. It's an open event for anybody already involved, anyone interested in getting involved, or anyone curious to know more about cohousing - questions welcomed!
In a bid to be accessible we will alternate our socials between being on the second Wednesday evening of the month (19.00-21.00), followed by the first Sunday morning of the following month (10.30-12.30).
We look forward to seeing those of you that can make it on Sunday!
Sharing is a handy, heartwarming, hard, and an essential part of cohousing! We recently enjoyed the thrill of its potential in a casual chat about a common problem when we realised that as a group we could simple buy an ordinarily expensive piece of equipment and just share it - simples!
So sharing can be economical too, and at this social we'd like to explore what we could definitely imagine sharing, what we simply must have full ownership of, and what we're as yet unsure about. This may include relatively straight-forward things like tools, cars, or skills. Though it could also include more unusual ideas like sharing guest bedrooms, having community bathing rooms rather than a bath in every home, or sharing financial capital in a 'cross-subsidy' approach. The possibilities are probably endless, and we'd like to understand more where we stand on these things.
We'll also be attempting to gather your thoughts and feelings around this important topic so please feel free to come along, find out more and join in the discussion.
Of course, socials are also an opportunity to simply find out a bit more about Sussex Cohousing and cohousing in general, and to meet (again, for some) with like-minded people interested in this pioneering way of living.
So, we hope to see you at Latest Music Bar(14-17 Manchester St, Brighton, East Sussex BN2 1TF) on Weds 9th March from 7-9pm!
