2021-22 Deputy Mayor of Worthing Borough Cllr Richard Nowak

Richard has lived in Worthing for 37 years, currently in Salvington where he is a ward Councillor. He was born and brought up in Cheltenham before completing his education at Oxford University where he read Chemistry.

He was recruited by the Bank of England but spent the bulk of his career in Commercial Banking before switching to Management Consultancy and finally Philatelic Investment. Now retired from business, he is currently a volunteer pastoral worker for a local community initiative called ARK (Acts of Random Kindness) and a trained Covid-19 Administrator for Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust.

Richard is a Director of the High Salvington Mill Trust and is delighted to be working alongside a very dedicated team of volunteers managing one of Worthing’s major historical assets.

Besides being a father and grandfather he spends what spare time is available organising field outings around Sussex for Shoreham District Ornithological Society of which he is a council member and walking with his dog Harry.

Richard said

“I am very honoured to have this opportunity to serve the entire community of Worthing as Deputy Mayor and to assist and support Mayor Lionel Harman in his second mayoral year. I am looking forward to meeting the many people who through their charitable work or business endeavours make Worthing the best place to live and work.”

Sally was born and brought up in London and met Richard whilst studying for a degree in French and History.

She has spent her entire career in both primary and secondary education, first as a teacher of French, and more recently working in the field of special educational needs.

During 2020 one of the largest donations made by the Rotary Club from fundraising activities was to the Worthing Food Bank in recognition of the essential work being carried out during the pandemic to support local residents in need.

“I am delighted to be able to support Richard with his deputy mayoral duties and I am particularly looking forward to opportunities to support our many local charities who do so much for the town.”
