The Friends of Palmeira and Adelaide’ (FOPA) is a residents association for Palmeira and Adelaide area and membership is open to all who reside in the area.

FOPA’s vision is ‘to help conserve the special character of this area whilst enhancing the quality of life of those who live here.’

Our residents’ association has a special responsibility for future generations who will live here and enjoy the Palmeira and Adelaide area in central Hove. This is one of the South coast’s premier heritage sites comprising an architectural set-piece of Grade 2 and 2* early and mid 19th Century Listed Buildings. Located between the landmark Floral Clock and Hove seafront lawns, the elegant square and crescent sweep around two gardens within the Brunswick Town Conservation Area.

The aims of the association are to act for the residents in preserving and improving the buildings, gardens and general amenity of the area. We also arrange social activities such as a Christmas party, Summer party and Coffee mornings.

The association actively liaises with other local organisations.
