Why Should I Subscribe?
Remember, your subscription is not just about gaining access to all the cool things that the BuildBrighton provides, it's about having BuildBrighton at all. Please support us so that we can continue working towards providing a community that will benefit everyone and, as a subscribing member of that community, you get a say in the direction that the group takes and the decisions that it makes, so that BuildBrighton is run for you and by you.
What happens to my subscription fee?
BuildBrighton is a not-for-profit community and all your subscriptions will go towards paying for the space and providing equipment, amenities and assets for the group.
