Four want to win Aldwick by-election

FOUR candidates are vying to become a district councillor for an area of Aldwick.

The rivals want to win the by-election for Aldwick East on March 14.

They are: Richard Dawson (Labour), Bill Smee (Conservative), Janet Taylor (UKIP) and Paul Wells (Liberal Democrats).

The by-election was caused by the death of Cllr Robin Brown.

A research and design engineer, Cllr Brown had been a Conservative member of Arun District Council for 21 years.

He was one of the longest-serving members of its cabinet until he stepped down from leading its housing and community care work in 2011 after ten years.

He had represented Aldwick East since 1999. He previously represented Pevensey and then Barnham from 1987-95.
