Worthing Daily asked all the candidates in the Castle ward by-election for Worthing Borough Council on Thursday August 7th for a statement.
The following is from Nick Wiltshire – the Liberal Democrat candidate:
Nick works at Goring Hall hospital and has a keen interest in sports generally both in an administrative capacity as well as an active participant.
In Littlehampton, where he previously lived, he has supported local sports clubs to campaign for the provision of more & better facilities through Littlehampton’s Sports Forum. Nick believes leisure trusts must be held to account to provide leisure facilities to their local communities at a fair price. Nick feels that residents, especially our younger ones, deserve more & better accessible leisure facilities.
He supports keeping the ‘Goring Gap’ to provide a healthy environment. Nick believes that any new homes should be in the right place and for local people. We need the young people to stay in the area.
Bus services cost local people dearly, and Nick would work towards improving the service by encouraging the Borough to provide more buses.
