Published: 28 June 2022

Helen Hewett was presented with a bouquet of flowers and gifts to recognise her 25 years of service to the Town Council and the local community at the Full Council Meeting in July.

Helen joined Haywards Heath Town Council in July 1997 and works as Assistant to the Clerk. Her role includes helping visitors to Haywards Heath and the Town Hall, management of the local cemetery in Western Road, management of the Town Council’s 4 allotment sites, working with the Haywards Heath Allotments community, and providing support to the Town Clerk in his work. She is well known for her warm and sunny greeting and for helping members, charities and groups of the community!

Town Mayor, Cllr Howard Mundin comments:

“The knowledge and commitment of long serving local council staff like Helen is invaluable to a Town Council and we hope Helen knows how much the community value her service to this town. It was marvellous to have the opportunity to thank Helen personally for all her hard work and to congratulate her on this milestone in her career. We frequently hear of the appreciation of the valuable help and support that our council and its dedicated team have given to the community over the years and Helen is one of our long serving stars who help develop and deliver these valuable services.”

Leader of Haywards Heath Town Council, Cllr Mike Pulfer adds:

“Helen’s commitment and dedication in supporting her colleagues and our local communities is outstanding and she was one of our team who went over and above during our response to the pandemic too. My heartfelt congratulations to Helen, I thank you for all that you have done and continue to do for our Council and our community.”

Local resident Helen attended college in Haywards Heath and has raised and educated her two children here too. She is delighted that she can now also take her first grand daughter to swimming lessons at the Dolphin Leisure Centre and is looking forward to using her Gin Glasses and Spa Voucher in the very near future!
