I’m already involved in trying to get local people’s voices heard through the group Community Action Newhaven, which I co-founded. We helped coordinate nearly 1000 objections to the Brett Aggregates concrete plant, and I submitted a 12-page objection letter on behalf of the group.
I want local councils to respect the views of ordinary people, and actually listen to them.
I moved to South Heighton 8 years ago to be with my wife who has lived here all her life. I have been a director at Lewes FC, created and ran their mental health program, I am now at Newhaven FC as their commercial manager (volunteer) and I now run their mental health program.
I have always had a huge interest in engaging in our community and I understand what annoys the local community!
