Cllr Martyn Garrett was elected Deputy Mayor for 2022-23 at the Annual Statutory Meeting on 10th May 2022.

Martyn has been a resident of Crowborough since 1978, and has represented the North Ward on Crowborough Town Council since 2015.  He has two married daughters – Rebecca Roake and Elaine Burbidge, and on 13th April, 2022 became a grandfather for the first time, with the birth of Elaine’s daughter – Molly. Sadly, Martyn’s wife Sheila died in 2013, but will be known to many former students at Beacon Academy as their teacher of Religious Studies.

HM Queen’s Memorial Cherry Trees

In November the Sport and Recreation Committee decided to plant five new cherry trees at Goldsmiths Recreation Ground in memory of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. These will be registered as part of the Queen’s Green Canopy scheme.

The trees have been planted on the area of land overlooking the new playpark at Goldsmiths.  There was a very short official ceremony to unveil the memorial plaque on Tuesday 17th January 2023.
