Unique city is fun and inviting

Have your say

Choccywoccydoodah is a fabulous chocolaterie in Brighton making scrumptious cakes and bonbons.

I’ve watched the TV programme on Choccywocccydoodah for years, but it’s not the chocolate I want to talk about, it’s Brighton.

Although in recent years the town has been hit by the recession, I just love Brighton for its Bohemian, cosmopolitan character, eclectic mix of shops, colourful characters and vibrancy.

Brighton has a unique lively atmosphere.

Oh how I wish Southsea had the same.

Yes, I know the Historic Dockyard, the Warrior, and the Spinnaker Tower are all fantastic.

But we have four miles of seafront and could be doing so much more.

And shops continue to close in Palmerston Road.

As a Pompey gal born and bred, I find it all very disheartening.
