Uckfield North rejects old guard

Well, we didn't win in Uckfield North, but we send our congratulations to Daniel Manvell of Labour - he's 18 and before the election sat on the town council as a non-voting youth member. The 'independent' candidate, who sought to join all the other 'independent' councillors in Uckfield stood no chance against Daniel's vigorous, lively campaign.

Thank you for voting for Pam. We enjoyed meeting people in North Uckfield and hearing about the issues that really concern you. We'd love to hear from you if you'd like to know more about the Green Party - Pam is our secretary so do get in touch with her at secretary@wealden.greenparty.org.uk.

Meet your Green Party candidate for Uckfield Town Council!

Pam Tysh lives locally and works in Uckfield as a support worker for people with disabilities. She has worked as a sixth form and adult education teacher, and as a housing suport worker with young and homeless people.

Pam is married, with two adult daughters, and though she grew up in South London, she has lived in the area for over 20 years. You may even have seen her picking up litter as a Green Party volunteer on the Uckfield by-pass.

Pam says:

"I care about social justice and will stand up and speak for everyone in North Uckfield. I won't allow anyone to be discriminated against because of their income, age, disability, or any other kind of prejudice. We should all have an equal share in power.

I believe that our communities can be a force for good where kindness and care shape the way we live together.

The environment is precious and vital for us all. Our physical and mental health depends on our surroundings. We must consider the impact of our daily lives and policies on the long-term health of our habitats and planet."

Pam's commitment to you:

I offer my time - to listen, to attend meetings, to represent, to question and to organise. 

I offer my personal integrity - to seek answers to difficult questions about austerity.

Where is my polling station?

There are two polling stations. One is at Manor Primary School in Downsview Road. The other is at the Cardal Hall in Belmont Road. To check which polling station you need to go to, click here.

Polling stations are open from 7.00am to 10.00pm. You don't need a polling card - none are being issued! 

 

 

A Green vote in Wealden counts!

Here's how close we came in 2017 to winning a seat on East Sussex County Council: just look at this tweet from BBC Sussex's politics reporter Ben Weisz!

In 2017 we stood candidates across Wealden in the County Council elections. 

Keith Obbard stood for election to the Forest Row and Groombridge ward, and came within a whisker of winning the seat from the Conservatives. 

Green             1406

Conservative   1468

LibDem             331

 

Thank you to everyone who supported our campaign, and who voted for Keith. We're determined to give the people of Wealden a Green voice on our local councils!
