"The new Shadow cabinet is brimming with good ideas as we react to the challenges facing our residents during the current cost of living crisis and climate change emergency. We continue to listen to residents in Horsham and across the district, speaking out on their behalf at Council. We are demonstrating that we have what it takes to lead the council from 2023."
