Cllr Sarah Hayward

Sarah first moved to Camden in 1997 and has lived here for most of the time since (the odd foray in to other bits of north London notwithstanding). She loves Camden’s diversity, whether it’s the people, music, food, shopping, parks, bars, markets – there’s always something different and new. From posh cheeses to pound shops, from world famous tourist attractions to dive bars, Camden has it all.

Sarah has worked in the public sector for most of her career, including Central Government, Local Government and the NHS and now she’s trying to set up her own business.
