Wealden District Councillor and Town Councillor for Hailsham Central
Nigel and his wife Sandra moved to Hailsham in 1977. Their four sons have all been educated in Hailsham schools, and are now successfully employed. He has been active in the community through church choral and theatrical presentations at the community hall. He is a life member and supporter of the Hailsham Pavilion.
He was elected as a Wealden Councillor in 1999, serving as the Cabinet member for finance from 2001, and four years as Council Leader. He has also served as a Hailsham Town Councillor for fourteen years in a variety of roles, most recently as Chairman of the Business Development Committee.
Nigel is a councillor member of Hailsham Forward, which grew out of Hailsham’s application for a Portas Grant, and over the coming year he expects to see some visible projects to enhance the image of the town.
His long term vision is for a town that is more ‘people focused’, and is working towards a refreshed town centre that will become an attractive focus for the growing population.
