Wealden Green Party

About Colin Stocks, our General Election candidate for Wealden

Wealden's Green Party Candidate for the upcoming General Election is Colin Stocks.

Colin grew up in Greater Manchester but moved to Crowborough in 1995. He and his family live in the town, and he works for an engineering company based in Tonbridge.

He has been actively involved in the area for many years. Colin served as a councillor for the Jarvis Brook ward on Crowborough Town Council between 2007 and 2011, and was deputy mayor in 2011. He campaigned hard for improved public transport provision, later becoming trustee and volunteer driver for a charity providing a shopping service for elderly residents. As chair of the Council’s Environment Committee, he was instrumental in creating the Country Park and Crowborough Ghyll nature reserves.

As secretary of the Jarvis Brook Community Association and facilitator in the Wealden Residents Action Group, Colin campaigned with fellow residents for new social housing in the town; Wealden District Council completed the development of more than 20 homes in 2014. Colin and the Community Association also created the Jarvis Brook skate park, which attracts young people from across the district.

If you have any question you'd like to ask Colin directly, or want to contact him for anything else, his email address is colin.stocks@greenparty.org.uk

Here's a link to an interview he gave to Uckfield FM.
