Section 3: Community Involvement

In addition to be being a Town and District Councillor, I am a school governor in two local schools and a member of Patient Participation Group for Stourport Medical Centre.

The combination of these roles helps me understand and appreciate the problems and issues effecting people and also the good things about living in Wyre Forest.

Section 4: Assisting Constituents

I am really interested to hear from people whether it is about the problems they are experiencing or their thoughts on what could be done to improve things. I am very happy to be contacted by phone, email, in person whichever people prefer. My contact details are readily available on Town and District Council sites and also included in the Stourport Rose which is delivered to Stourport residents.

During the year a range of issues have come my way, some of which I have been able to help with others not, as unfortunately it isn't always possible to fix every problem. In these instances, I have signposted people to other organisations who may be able to help and/ or explained why the law sometimes allows something to happen which is seen as undesirable.

I have attended meetings where I have gained a better understanding of issues effecting residents and communities including the local Housing Association and the national High Street Task Force (HSTF), which provides expert advice on improving our local High Streets.

Section 5: Supplementary Information

I have been a Stourport resident for over 40 years. I shop and socialise in Stourport on a weekly basis. I hope this gives me an insight and empathy to people's concerns and worries.

I also look to use the knowledge and skills acquired in a long civil service career, including senior leadership posts, to help residents with the range of issues/ concerns which they have and also be an effective participant at committee and council meetings.
