Young Mayor of Newhaven
Ted Packham was elected as Newhaven’s Young Mayor at the end of October 2019.
Ted has indicated that he would be seeking to support SCDA in their ongoing Youth Counselling Work and that of the mental health of young people across the town.
Additionally, he will be looking to support projects that provide opportunities for young people, get them off ‘the streets’ to be safe and have fun.
Role of the Young Mayor
The job of the Young Mayor of Newhaven is to represent all young people aged 11-17 years in Newhaven. Like the adult Mayor, Ted will represent them ceremonially and symbolically at special events – but more importantly he will make sure that their views are heard by the town council on local issues.
