Paul Metcalfe: Sovereign
Born and bred in Eastbourne and lived in Sovereign Harbour for the past 20 years, I think I can honestly say I’ve a good understanding of how the town ‘ticks’.
My wife Maureen and I’ve been married for 47 years, and have three grown up children and seven grandchildren.
I retired as a senior lecturer and commercial operations manager following almost 30 years in Further Education in Eastbourne. For three decades, I was a member of the Eastbourne Lifeboat, later becoming the Lifeboat Operations Manager. I’m a holder of both a Queen’s Golden and Diamond Jubilee Medals, and was awarded an MBE for my services to the RNLI.
