In May 2009, a group from the community took over a derelict Esso garage and set up the Lewes Road Community Garden - now a lifeline to some and a much loved meeting space and green haven for others, along the busy, traffic-clogged Lewes Road. It has been enjoyed by thousands of people, providing a venue for community events and bringing together local residents many of whom don’t have gardens themselves. There is a food waste compost scheme, vegetable growing and Fairlight school-kids have their own 'pot up a plant' project.
