What’s your favourite place in Brighton and Hove?

I really like the area I live in, Kemptown. It has good restaurants, pubs and delis and cafes away from the crowds, beach on your doorstep and it isn’t crowded. Has a villagey feel to the place.

How do you relax?

Like to do a variety of things with friends revolving around food and drink mainly – like cooking for others and eating out. I like to get out of Brighton at least once a fortnight onto the Downs for a walk or bike ride.

anoushka_westpierWhat would you change about Brighton and Hove?

Stop converting /building flats aimed only at first time, childless buyers. This is changing the demography of Brighton to 20/30 something professionals and driving all the families out of Brighton. We are having a baby and feel like we will be forced to move out of Brighton and Hove one day soon.

What would your motto be?

Try everything once. If other people can do it, so can you.
