Josh Wastes No Time In Rolling Up His Sleeves


News from Josh Babarinde OBE, Eastbourne & Willingdon Lib Dem Parliamentary Candidate at the end of his first active week:
"I’ve wasted no time in rolling up my sleeves and getting stuck right in since being selected a week ago as the Liberal Democrat candidate to be our town’s next MP.
Here’s some of what I’ve been up to in my first week in the job:
🟣 Joined Purple Tuesday campaigners to advocate for businesses to be more inclusive toward those with disabilities.
❌ Held our MP to account after she voted to meddle with anti-corruption rules.
🌏 Marched to pressure world leaders to take global action on climate change at COP26.
🎺 Commemorated the service and sacrifice of the Armed Forces community at the Eastbourne Concert of Remembrance.
🎂 Celebrated the 3rd Anniversary of top Hampden Park business Cuckoo Cakes with owners Suail and Cynara.
🏥 Met with Save the DGH campaign colleagues and pressed for action on the new hospital Boris Johnson has promised Eastbourne.
🌳 Met with the Hampden Park and Willingdon Trees Area Panel to support and plan upcoming community events.
🏠 Supported residents with casework - quite a number housing support requests this week.
🏳️‍🌈 Spoke on a panel to inspire more LGBT+ folks to stand for public office.
💫 At the heart of all of this has been supporting our wonderful town - and our precious planet - to thrive.
🌟 It’s a honour to be doing this work (a voluntary role I balance alongside my day job supporting entrepreneurs to build businesses) for the town that has made me ‘me’.
✊ Much more to come over the coming months, years and beyond as our candidate and, with your support, as Eastbourne & Willingdon’s next MP."
Good Going Josh!
