Simon Kirby MP joined local Councillors and activists on Saturday to support David Plant, the Conservative candidate for the East Brighton By-Election on 4th August.

David was born in Brighton and lived in Whitehawk from the age of 8 until he married and moved away aged 23. He went to Whitehawk School and as a youngster was a chorister at St Cuthman's church. David is proud to have played and captained the Whitehawk Football club first team and still follows their development with interest.

David is an electrician by trade and is married to Paula with two grown up children. he is very involved in charity work, including organisation of an annual golf day whereby the proceeds are donated to charity.

David cares passionately about East Brighton. The area is an incredibly special part of our city but it could be even better. If elected he will work hard to be a strong voice for local residents and seek to improve our local area.

Kemptown & Peacehaven Conservatives represent the Conservative Party in the Brighton Kemp Town constituency, which runs from the Pier to Peacehaven, from Moulsecoomb to the Marina, & all the communities between. Our Association works both in Brighton & Hove City, and in Lewes District, as the constituency boundaries are shared across both areas.


As an organisation we work to elect Conservatives in Council, Parliamentary and European elections.

Our councillors work to help local people with their problems and to take up issues, and always to provide excellent value-for-money services for residents.

We run social functions, political events and fund-raising events; all to promote our cause.

We welcome anyone who supports the Conservative Party and we have members from all the diverse communities which make up our constituency.
