The Meads ward Eastbourne
We are delighted to announce the Labour candidates for the Meads ward:
- Bill Filby
- Angela Goodchild
- Dr David Mannion
As a lecturer at the University of Brighton, I understand the negative impact that the loss of the University campus will have on Meads and the town as a whole. If elected, I will do my utmost to build alliances with all interested groups to try and stop the sports facilities from being demolished.
The Lib-Dem-run council have already closed community swimming pools and sports facilities nearby so I have no faith in them fighting to preserve the Denton Road facilities.
A vote for me is a vote to save our Sports Centre.
On your ballot paper, look for: FILBY, Bill, Labour

Meads is a lovely community in which I am proud to be a resident.
On your ballot paper, look for: GOODCHILD, Angela Mary, Labour
If elected I will champion Labour's progressive policies on the economy, climate change and local community investment, policies for the benefit of all in Meads, not just the few. Angela Goodchild
Dr David Mannion
David worked as a Physics and Mathematics teacher for 31 years teaching in secondary schools and colleges in the UK, Austria and Turkey. He has three degrees in astronomy and gained a PhD in astrophysics from Durham University.
He is passionate about Education and his other interest is sport; he has won 7 British Masters weightlifting titles and is an International Referee for weightlifting.
He would be most active on the Council defending schools and championing the benefits of sports facilities, not just in Meads but in the whole of Eastbourne.
David will be a strong voice for the needs of people requiring excellent education and training and will help to defend the sports facilities that so benefit the community. He is a caring, thoughtful person ready to serve.
On your ballot paper, look for: MANNION, Dr David, Labour
As a councillor I will listen to the worries and concerns of the residents of Meads and will act upon them David Mannion
