In the absence of the Mayor of Peacehaven, Deputy Mayor, Cllr. Job Harris announced that Cllr. Jackie Harrison-Hicks had raised £6,626.78 during her term of office.
This sum would be equally split giving Anchor Health Centre and Rowe Avenue Surgery £ 3,313,39 each. Early into Cllr. Harrison-Hicks year the surgeries both decided that they would like a portable ECG machine, so this is what the Mayor had been fundraising for.
Unfortunately, The Mayor was unable to attend due to a recent admission to hospital. We all wish her a speedy recovery.
