Old Town Ward Eastbourne
We are delighted to announce that the Labour candidates for Old Town ward are:
- Jake Lambert
- Paul Richards
Jake Lambert is a teacher at a local secondary school and a well-known local campaigner on everything from Save the DGH to stopping sewage.
He has lived in Eastbourne for 28 years and is aware of the needs of local residents, especially in a cost of living crisis. He believes our town needs Labour voices on the council who will fight for the change we need.
“I love the community spirit of Old Town – that’s what our council needs. As your councillor, I would roll up my sleeves and work with others to get things done.
“I’d be a strong voice for our community, to protect our services and our environment and offer a real alternative.”
“A vote for Labour is a vote for change and to get your council working for you.”

Paul Richards has lived in the Old Town of Eastbourne for 14 years. He was Labour’s candidate for police and crime commissioner in Sussex, and stood for Parliament in Lewes in 2001.
Paul Richards says ‘it’s time for change in Eastbourne. We need new local leadership to take our town to new heights. That means a cleaner environment, more support for struggling businesses especially in hospitality, action on antisocial behaviour, and world-class public services for all. I will die in a ditch to defend our local NHS and social services. As a Labour councillor I will fight for Old Town everyday and demand the council reopen Motcombe Pool immediately. No more excuses.’
