LETTER: Questions for the voters of Henfield

The Gang of Four, that had been broken up by Horsham Conservative Association, is slowly being re-formed now that Cllr Ray Dawe and Claire Vickers’ hope to get Helena Croft back in power in the supposedly safe seat of Henfield which is a neighbour Conservative Association.

Residents in Henfield should go on Kingdoms Faith’s website and listen to Clive Urquhart who is Senior Pastor there. The recording was posted on 15 January 2014 (www.kingdomfaith.com/watchandlisten/Episode-3448-Clive-Urquhart-Vision-Night-2014.aspx).

Your reporter Theo Cronin interviewed Mrs Croft when she was appointed as deputy leader to Ray Dawe at Horsham District Council (HDC) under the headline ‘Preacher turned politician’ (1.5.13). Theo Cronin probed ways her faith and Kingdom Faith influenced her political journey. Mrs Croft responded, ‘I wouldn’t link it specifically to Kingdom Faith, I don’t speak on behalf of Kingdom Faith’.

Now that is an interesting statement because Clive Urquhart said in this ‘Vision Night 2014’ speech (link above) ‘Helena… God is doing stuff with her… she goes into that environment, HD Council and other local institutions, not in her own name but she goes in as Kingdom Faith’.

Did Cllr Croft explain to Henfield Conservative Branch the clear different interpretations of her role as seen by a Senior Pastor at Kingdom Faith and her own version to Theo Cronin?

Is Cllr Croft at HDC to primarily look after Kingdom Faith interest in Horsham district or is she there primarily to look after her constituents?

The majority in Roffey felt that she failed to represent them over Ray Dawe and Claire Vickers’ plans to develop the land north of the A264 for strategic housing and industrial use.
