Wealden District Council member for Hailsham West, Chairman of Hailsham Conservatives and Wealden Conservative Association Officer.
Hi my name is Richard Grocock, I am married to Susan and have lived in Hailsham for over 30 years. During this time I ran a successful business on the High Street before deciding I wanted to do more for the community. I was elected to Hailsham Town Council in 2011 and in that time have served on most of the committees; I was elected as Vice Chairman / Deputy Mayor for a period of two years, and served as Vice Chairman of the Finance committee.
I was Chairman of Hailsham in Bloom for three years and, although it is no longer a part of the council but a charity doing the same work, I am still its chairman.
Richard serves on the following committees at Wealden District Council:
- Audit and Finance Committee
- Full Council
- Joint Planning Committee North and South
- Licensing Committee
- Overview and Scrutiny Committee (Reserve)
- Planning Committee South
Richard has been elected councillor for the new Hailsham West ward in May 2019's district and town council elections.
