Constituency Work

In addition to individual case work within the ward I have been helping out with litter picking, organising some hedge trimming amongst neighbours, helping to establish a wild flower meadow, attending community fun days, helping with Homewatch security checks, supporting the organisation of a Guy Fawkes bonfire, attending the local Diwali celebrations and even being Santa at the local community centre for community groups and schools.

Members Advice Surgeries

Member’s Advice Surgeries are held twice a month on the first and third Saturday.

Training and Development

As a new member this year I have attended all but one of the Member Training sessions that will give me more knowledge to better serve the members of our community.

Achievements during the Year

With ever reducing budgets and as a result reduced services, any achievements are more about what individuals or groups can do for themselves and others around them. So I will have achieved a lot if I can enable this process to continue and expand.

Any other comments

Thank you to all the people that have supported me and listened.
