Eddie and his wife moved to Petworth nearly 30 years ago having been born and grown up in East Sussex. He lives in Petworth with his wife Alyona who is originally from Ukraine and their son Dmitry. Eddie has two other grown up children who also live in Petworth. In the last few years he has been active in the town, being on the Petworth Primary School’s parents committee helping to organise various events, he has also helped out at some events in town for the Town Council. Recently, Eddie set up the Petworth Ukraine Relief group and with the help of some amazing people they have sent out many loads of aid directly into Ukraine and also now help the Ukrainian families that have arrived locally.
So with all that in mind Eddie wanted to give back to our local community and that is why he has joined Petworth Town Council. Eddie’s skills are varied as is his knowledge and he hopes to have a positive impact on our town and it’s future. There are many things that interest Eddie not least facilities for the younger generation who are our future, but also to make it inclusive and beneficial to all of the residents of Petworth and for them to feel part of the wider community.
