Lewes and Havens Community Network
Mental health & well-being in your community
Come and find out more about what’s happening locally and changes to how services are delivered.
Wednesday 24th January between 10.00 am – 1.00 pm at
Linklater Pavilion, Railway Lane, Lewes BN7 2FG
You are warmly invited to attend the next Lewes & The Havens Community Networking. The Networks are cross-sector events for everyone in the local community organised in partnership by 3VA and the ESCC Locality Link Workers.
The networks are informal meetings that enable individuals that represent organisations or groups from all sectors across Lewes & The Havens to network together, share information, build relationships and collaboration, influence service provision and provide opportunities for mutual support and learning.
By coming along to this Network, you can:
- Learn about services offered by others working in the community and explore potential ways of working together to improve community mental health.
- Gain insight into how to help you work with your community on what works well.
- Talk to other groups and organisations active in the Lewes & The Havens area and explore potential ways of working together to create ways in which we can all be more involved in local conversations and plans in the future.
- Enjoy a free lunch!
There will be opportunities to tell other participants about things happening in your organisation, including an information table at the venue and you are welcome to bring along literature about your group for other people to take away.
Attending the Network is completely free, but there is limited space in the venue and demand for places is likely to be high, so we may have to limit places to one per organisation. To be sure of your place, please book by 5pm on Friday 19th January.
Pre-booking is essential, but easy! To secure your place please book online here: https://www.3va.org.uk/civicrm/event/info?reset=1&id=265

Christmas Day can often be difficult for people who are isolated within our communities but there is a fantastic offer for people who will be alone at Christmas or those with dementia and their carers in and around Lewes. The new Lewes community cinema – The Depot – is offering a free 3 course Christmas lunch and film on Christmas Day. Arrive at 12 noon for lunch. The film to be shown at 2 pm will be ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’. Departure at 4.30 pm.
As a new build facility accessibility has been built in so all areas of The Depot are wheelchair accessible (including accessible WCs) and there are induction loops for people who have hearing impairments.
