Darren Ridge - Lib Dem candidate for Hailsham Town Council, North West ward
Darren has lived in Hailsham on and off for over 30 years, and settled here permanently five years ago. Many members of his family live in the town too. "I believe the welfare and wellbeing of adults and children in the community should be a priority," he says. "Nature and the environment are also very important to me. I often go walking along our nearby beaches, and help clear up the plastic rubbish that is polluting our environment."
So what made Darren decide to stand as a Hailsham Town Councillor? "I can see the development changes destroying the character of the town and taking away our green spaces," he says. "Like you, I am very concerned over the lack of infrastructure important to everyday life and I'm convinced I can make life better all round."
