I’ve lived in Horsham for almost 15 years having moved down from West London where I grew up. I’ve worked as a professional musician since the 80s in many different genres including a reggae band and classical orchestral, both live and for TV. I’ve also been a proud trade union member of the Musician’ Union for over thirty years.
I have voted Labour all my life and joined the party in 2015 after many years of protest and activism on equality/race, environmental issues and supporting and protecting the NHS and the arts.
My parents were both immigrants, my father being a refugee from Nazism and my mother, a Windrush generation British citizen from Trinidad and I have a strong interest in social and racial justice.
I am committed to genuinely affordable housing having spent most of my life living in so-called “social” housing. There is a real need for more affordable rental as well as purchase property. We won’t get that by building huge developments which price out the average Horsham resident on a standard wage.
