Hampden Park ward Eastbourne
We are delighted to announce that the Labour candidates for The Hampden Park Ward are:
- Graham Dean
- Wendy Lambert
- Margaret Robinson
I am very pleased to be chosen to represent the Labour Party in Hampden Park ward, Eastbourne, for the Council election on Thursday, 4 May 2023. I am 69 years old, married with 2 grown up children and live in the Ward.
I have been active locally since moving to Hampden Park 8 years ago. I have campaigned on local air pollution at the Brassey Avenue Shops, saving the NHS from cuts and privatisation, campaigning for decent pay for working people in Eastbourne, supported the Hampden Park Shed, and much more over the years.
Our public services, open spaces and roads are at their lowest point in many decades. Its time for Labour candidates to put things right after 13 years of Tory and Liberal Democrat mismanagement. We all deserve better, and I will fight for high quality public services, properly paid jobs and strong local businesses.
On your ballot paper, look for: DEAN, Graham Arthur, Labour
Voting Labour is the way forward if we are serious about improving our community. Graham Dean
As a resident of Hampden Park for the last 28 years, I understand the needs of local people. The local environment is in need of investment and care. For example, money needs to be spent on improving the local shopping hubs. As a retired PE teacher, I am concerned about the loss of grass pitches in Hampden Park and the charges introduced for use of council tennis courts. The Lib Dem-run council should be making it easier for people to exercise rather than putting barriers in their way. If elected, I will fight to improve local facilities and to reverse the council cuts made over the last few years.
On your ballot paper, look for: LAMBERT, Wendy Elizabeth, Labour

I live and work in Hampden Park. I am a former State Registered Nurse and trained at the EDGH. I have been involved in community work for many years and I am a trustee of our community centre in Brodrick Road.
Key issues that residents have said they are concerned about are
- The state of our roads. Pot holes and worn road markings, making it dangerous for road users.
- The locking up of our tennis courts in Hampden Park. Families and young people have to book and pay to use them. This is a loss of our open spaces by our Lib Dem Council
- The need for more police presence
- Seafront attractions, like Fort Fun and Bandstand not being properly maintained. Some are now closed.
I think its time we had a more diverse council and that Labour supporters are represented on our council.
On your ballot paper, look for: ROBINSON, Margaret Elizabeth, Labour.
It would be an honour to represent Hampden Park residents; to improve the quality of life for all; to support residents with their issues and to promote community development. Margaret Robinson
