Section 3: Community Involvement

I have been appointed as a trustee to the Sir Edward Blount's Charity (operates as Witnell Blount Charity). The charity's main role is operating and maintaining six alms-houses in Franche & Habberley North Ward. I have close ties with the White Wickets Friends of group and attend meetings where my schedule allows.

Section 4: Assisting Constituents

After nearly completing my first 12 months as a Councillor I have enjoyed meeting with residents on a face-to-face basis as well as responding to all calls, emails, text messages and one written letter posted to me.

With my ward colleagues Cllr David Ross and Cllr Ben Brookes, I deliver a regular newsletter to all households in the ward. At least three editions are produced each year as well as Christmas cards. I also post regularly on Facebook and other social media.

Section 5: Supplementary Information

This is my first report as a Councillor, and I look forward to completing 12 months on the Council. I have very much enjoyed working with my ward colleagues Councillor Ross and Brookes and benefitting from both of their many years of experience.
