At last night’s Annual Meeting of Newhaven Town Council, Councillor Judith Ost was elected Town Mayor for 2014-15. Judith has been a town councillor for 15 years and was Leader of the Council from 2003 to 2012. She was a teacher at Tideway School for many years prior to her retirement and has lived in the town with her husband for 43 years, raising two children here.

Judith has chosen Home-Start as the Mayor’s charity for her year of office. Home-Start helps families with children deal with whatever life throws at them. They support parents as they learn to cope, improve their confidence and help them to build better lives for their children.

The newly elected Mayor said: “I am looking forward to meeting many of the wonderful people who make this town tick and helping to promote and support their work, especially their volunteering and fund raising.”
