In 2020 this role was increased so I have been the Cabinet Member for Strategic Infrastructure, Transport & Planning.
In May 2021 I was elected as Deputy Leader of Swindon Borough Council but also keeping the same Cabinet responsibilities.
I attend monthly Parish Council meetings in Liddington, Bishopstone and Chiseldon (for Badbury).
I hold Ward Councillor Surgeries in Wanborough Village Hall monthly but also do these on occasions in Bishopstone and Liddington - all Ward residents are welcome to each:
As Ward Councillor I may attend up to four Parish Council meetings a month and do my best to add value and help where requested.
On the whole both the Parish Councils and residents benefit from this but I am more than happy to meet residents at other times more convenient to them.
Foundation Park is the new training location for Wanborough JFC:
One of my greatest achievements for Wanborough Junior Football Club was something I will see for many years to come.
Working with STFC Community Foundation, 'Wanborough Junior Football Club' became one of only two partner clubs in this fantastic £2m facility next to the County Ground attracting over £900,000 towards the overall cost from the Premier League.
I was able to agree a 5 year deal with excellent rates for WJFC to train and play at the state of the art facility. Teams have the best quality training facilities and in the summer when the older age groups lose 'Hooper's Field' to Cricket for several months and are 'homeless' for training they have this incredible place to play and train. In the winter, younger ages can play league matches on a Sunday morning and train on a Saturday.
