Get to Know the People behind HRRA


Details of the committee members of HRRA are detailed below (click on links to send a direct email). All committee members are trustees of HRRA.

Andrew (chair) lives with his partner in Battle; having moved to the area permanently during the pandemic lockdown of 2020. They are no strangers to the area or HRRA as we have been visiting from their home in West London most weekends to their static caravan/lodge just outside Westfield. He was instrumental in setting up and running the “Fine Dining” which has now resumed and tried his luck at learning Bridge with the group. Since arriving and setting down roots he have been involved in the re-create choir and drama group and become a local Parish councillor for Battle. He is keen to help and support HRRA to provide social opportunity for the members of our communities to come together in different ways. During the day he still works (from home) for a trade union.


Chrissy (Deputy Chair) is a journalist, who writes about radio, podcasts and audio. In parallel with an academic career in music and health, she has been an activist in CND, Friends of the Earth and the Green Party. She is also a co-organiser of the Rainbow Alliance Trans support group.


Ben (Treasurer) has been treasurer of HRRA since 2009. He is a Chartered Accountant with a local accountancy firm having qualified in 1998 and has lived in Hastings all of his life.
