Hedon Town Council
We also have three Labour members on Hedon Town Council:
Councillor Neil Black
I am a Hedon Town Councillor of 35 yrs (Mayor in 2015-2017).
I have lived in South West Holderness for 52 yrs. and in Hedon for 42 yrs. where I am proprietor of a shop. My family and I have committed our time and energy to the community during this period.
I have been Chairman of both Hedon Town Councils Planning and Property Committees on several occasions. A founder member of the Hedon Preservation Society. Past Chairman of The Painters Charity. A director (unpaid) of the P.L.P. High Street. Ltd. Hull. Treasurer of The Amy Black Community Centre.
At the 2015 County Election, I came a creditable fourth, losing by only 178 votes to the Tories, this time with your support I could succeed. As a Socialist. I believe, when amenities (Schools, Universities, Healthcare, Transport, Libraries, Museums, etc.) are free at the point of use, the happier and more content and the more prosperous society will become.
When time allows I like working on our allotment and garden, reading and playing Bridge.
Councillor Steve Gallant
Steve Gallant is a Hedon Town Councillor (and Mayor of the town for the last two years ).
He is Chair of Governors at South Holderness Technology College, Chair of the Hedon Armistice Memorial Group and a Board member at Hull Truck Theatre.
Having spent 30 years as a senior executive in music and TV industries, Steve moved back to Hedon in 2012 and has got involved in all sorts of community activities.
A lifelong Labour member, Steve was first elected Councillor in 2015.
