The letter below will be appearing in June’s edition of Pett & Pett Level News. With Chris’s permission, it is posted here as well.
May I take the opportunity, through the magazine, to give sincere and heartfelt thanks to all the residents of Pett and Pett Level for their support, both in the recent Rother District Council election and during my four years as District Councillor.
Although challenging at times, I very much enjoyed being your representative during my term and was disappointed at not being able to continue but that, as they say, is politics. Also, in this particular case, although my support in Pett and Guestling was extremely high, the far larger voter numbers in Fairlight meant that sadly, on this occasion I was unsuccessful. Still, I met so many great people over the four years and made several new friends.
As for the future, Mary and I are now looking to move to a smaller and more practical property but we very much hope that this can still be in the village or on the Level, as they are such great communities.
Thank you again
