Ridgeway Ward - special villages

Village life is busy! I represent four villages plus some hamlets. I attend four Parish Council meetings a month and have developed a great working relationship with the Councillors and Clerk's at Liddington, Bishopstone and Chisledon (where I represent Badbury). Together we achieve much for residents.

LIDDINGTON - A packed meeting organised to update residents on some important local concerns. These include traffic, speeding, house-building, village maintenance, play equipment, dog fouling and the wider effect of major house-building locally.

BISHOPSTONE - Lots of different concerns including anti social behavour on The Ridgeway - our section of the National Trail which is being littered and livestock damaged by late night revellers. 


The Ridgeway Villages are very special places but they will have completely different issues for residents. Public transport, getting to school, access to services which residents in urban areas proabably take for granted. I will be here for you to make sure that you get help from the right people in the right place. The countyside experiences different types of crime and social issues including isolation for some older residents.



Our villages have many roads and hedgerows and in these difficult economic times it can appear that maintenance is required but not forthcoming. Whilst I can't promise to change everything I will try to be your voice to identify particular problem areas and for smaller items there will be a link to report items for attention to the Borough Council.
