“I’ve served as a Town and District councillor since 2007 and I’m dedicated to this town of East Grinstead as I have lived here all of my life.

I live on the Stone Quarry Estate with my two amazing daughters Emily 14 and Daisy 10. I know what it’s like to have to make ends meet and I genuinely care about people and want to help.

I’m keen to listen and to express the views of the people I represent and I want to make the wisest decisions I can, because I’m part of this community. I feel it’s important to be involved and to strive for a good quality of life for everyone.

I am most fulfilled in my work when I can make a difference to a resident’s quality of life.”

JOHN Dabell is the Conservative councillor representing Ashplats ward on the Town Council.

A former Royal Navy flyer, he completed more than 30 years in business as a Nestle Business Manager, and has lived in East Grinstead for three decades years.

The untimely death of his son in 2004 inspired an annual memorial match between the sixth formers of Imberhorne and Sackville schools, and John says his affinity with young people has led him to various leadership roles with them over the years.

“After retiring from business, I was encouraged by my daughter, a local primary school teacher, to begin a second career as a Study Supervisor at Imberhorne School, where I am also actively involved with ‘careers’.

“I’m a Governor at Queen Victoria Hospital and at Felbridge primary school. And as an active Christian, I’m on the PCC of St John’s, Felbridge.

His main concern is “to see the best of the town conserved as we carefully manage an inevitable move forward, to improve housing, job and living opportunities.”
