Jeffrey’s Key Pledges for Mill Hill
- Revitalise play areas like Cowdray Square, including the provision of outdoor gyms.
- Work to expand local transport schemes for older members of the Mill Hill community that help people shop and socialise with confidence.
- Oppose further over-development of Mill Hill. We need quality social and affordable homes, not packed in, poor quality developments.

ALSO, DON’T FORGET: IN MILL HILL USE YOUR TOWN COUNCIL VOTE FOR TONY GRIST
Tony first moved to Deal in 1969 and has lived in the district on and off ever since. He is married with two children and two grandchildren. His working life has been mainly devoted to education, having been a primary school teacher locally and working in Theatre in Education for many years.
Having lived here for all these years, Tony has noticed many changes in the area: a population doubling and an infrastructure crumbling in all directions has caused huge problems: roads, medical facilities, education and the general environment has been consistently neglected in the name of more and more housing! Tony wants things to change: local services must be prioritised.
Tony’s spare time, if any, is spent outdoors usually through walking, cycling, tennis and badminton. He is excited to be a Deal Town Council candidate and helping to make a difference in the town he loves.
