Goodbye to our Community Development Worker Mark Drayton

Last week we said goodbye to our long standing Community Development Worker Mark Drayton, most recently part of the central Brighton team.

Mark said of his time with TDC:

"After many years being involved with TDC as a trustee and a worker, I am leaving the organisation in September.

It is hard to say goodbye but I know the important work TDC do with communities across the city will continue. I have worked in various roles in the city supporting the work done by an army of volunteers. These residents offer a range of services from Food Banks -- like The Purple People Kitchen and the Phoenix Food Shop -- to community events and fun days for local people; while neighbourhood forums, like Portslade Community Forum and the Hanover and Elm Grove Forum, offer the chance to get involved and make a positive difference to neighbourhoods.

I am in awe of the work done by so many in Brighton, Hove and Portslade and it is this I will miss most along with my colleagues at TDC of course!"

Everyone at TDC is sad to see Mark leaving us. We will miss him and TDC won't be the same without him. We are so grateful for all the amazing work he has done as part of our Neighbourhoods Team and wish him all the best for the future.

Kirsty Walker, Director of Neighbourhoods said:

"Mark will be really missed by those he has supported. His commitment to things being genuinely led by the community has fostered some fantastic community leadership that we will continue to benefit from across the city."
