Eastbourne’s former MP Stephen Lloyd has written a letter of thanks to his old constituents and said it was a ‘real privilege’ to serve the town.
"As you’ll know by now I lost the election and will no longer be Eastbourne & Willingdon’s MP. This is hugely disappointing for me not least as the BBC constituency poll on Thursday night put me as likely to retain the seat. But twas not to be.
It has been a real privilege serving you all and our lovely, wonderful, kind and community-focussed town as your member of Parliament.
Every minute of every day was a gift you gave me which I will cherish the memory of for the rest of my life. Thank you.
See you around town my friends.
