STOP PRESS: Meet Oli Henman, parliamentary candidate for the Liberal Democrats at breakfast

Concerned about Brexit? Fed up that we’re not out yet or just confused? Come along to the Newhaven Chamber breakfast and meet Oli Henman on Wednesday 13th November to put your questions to the parliamentary candidate for the Liberal Democrats.

Oli Henman, who lives with his wife and two primary-school age sons in Lewes, has worked for 20 years for international charities and is currently global coordinator at Action for Sustainable Development. He worked as a parliamentary assistant to the former Lib Dem MP Paul Keetch when he was the party’s spokesperson against the Iraq War and Guantanamo Bay controversies.

Mr Henman was also the Lib Dems’ candidate in East Shoreham and Worthing at the 2017 general election. He is a distant relative of the former tennis great Tim Henman.

The Lewes parliamentary seat, which also includes the towns of Seaford, Newhaven, most of Polegate and several villages, was held by the Conservatives throughout the 20th century until Norman Baker won it for the Liberal Democrats in 1997. Mr Baker has welcomed Mr Henman’s selection.

At the 2017 election Ms Caulfield increased her majority, with only the Lib Dems and Labour fielding candidates against her. Since then the Greens, Lib Dems, Labour and independents have taken control of Lewes District Council from the Tories following May’s election.
