Rev. Pat Alden
Candidate for Widewater ward, Adur District Council
I am standing as your labour candidate in Widewater ward I have lived on Shoreham Beach for 5 years and feel that I am beginning to know the local community and its needs .
I have been a member of the Labour party for over 50 years and have supported my late husband in his role as a local councillor both in London and here in Adur district.
I would like to represent you on our district council as I feel there are many issues to call into question, in particular the impact of the new housing development at Mash Barn and the effect it will have on our young people I have been a member of the Academy Council of Sir Robert Woodard Academy for 5 years.
I have a background in education and, although this is a County issue, nevertheless the local voice needs to be heard in regard to parental choice and other matters that affect our children’s development.
It is important that your district councillor listens to the concerns of the ward and is able to articulate them to the appropriate committee.
I can pledge that I will be available to my ward and take note of issues that arise from the locality
