Profile:

I HAVE been one of the ward councillors for the past four years and in that time have responded to every enquiry put to me.

I care very much for the community and residents that I serve as a local councillor and am proud to work for SDC, which is a well-run council that keeps its council tax low and has cut NO services.

Times are turbulent and I remind everyone that we are LOCAL councillors, here to serve our communities. If re-elected I hope to continue helping residents with their issues, including planning, highways-improving safety issues outside our schools and housing local families in the new developments coming to this ward, as well as helping the elderly down-size too.

I have worked with developers to secure a new play facility which will provide equipment for all ages but will focus on teenagers and have helped secure funding from SDC to provide outdoor gym equipment at the Recreation ground.

Looking to the future I hope to continue working with the Parish Council and other community groups to create a six-year plan for the village and putting the CIL monies from developers back into worthy projects in the community.
