Labour Co-Op councillors from Wish, South Portslade and North Portslade wards held a street stall on Saturday 27th October. Despite the cold weather, they received a warm reception from local shoppers and traders in Boundary Road.
They were also joined by the Labour Police and Crime Commissioner candidate for Sussex, Godfrey Daniel and members of Wish & Westbourne and Central Hove Branches of the Labour Party.
South Portslade councillor Alan Robins said “as Labour councillors, we are very active in our community. It is important that local residents can discuss their concerns and raise issues with us”.
Councillor Anne Pissaridou from neighbouring Wish Ward said “People told me that they are very worried about more cuts by national government, and that further cuts by the local authority to schools will have a devastating effect to their families and on their children’s education.
She continued “These are the very people who will also be suffering from the likely savings made by the city council to other frontline services”
Penny Gilbey, councillor in North Portslade was said there was plenty of interest in the forthcoming Police and Crime Commissioner elections on 15th November. She added “by our Labour party members selecting Godfrey Daniel as our PCC candidate, we have the candidate with the most experience of criminal justice who will oppose any moves to privatise police staff and believes in cutting crime, not police.”
