My work for residents

MY WORK IN SWINDON BOROUGH COUNCIL and THE RIDGEWAY WARD:

 

Since my election in May 2016 I have really enjoyed my work in the Ridgeway Ward. I now attend four Parish Council meetings on a monthly basis and have met some really great people doing a lot for their communities. I have done as much as I can to support them in what they want to achieve.

 

I am grateful for the lovely comments from residents and appreciate your support for me. If residents report issues to me they will get a quick response!

 

WORK IN 2017/18:

 

Litter picking on The Ridgeway

 

I love having so much open space near to where we live - we walk our dog on The Ridgeway (yes - we always go well prepared and pick up any of her deposits) whilst we are collecting other peoples litter.

 

I have asked the local police to keep a closer eye on the area as there has been anti-social behaviour and drug use as well as damage to livestock. 

 

Swindon Borough Council work

 

WORK IN 2016/2017:

 

In my first year I enjoyed an afternoon tour of a farm in Wiltshire to help me appreciate how hard our farmers have to work!

 

Working in Swindon but living in the rural communities of The Ridgeway ward I am able to get a great perspective on the challenges faced by both Town and Countryside.

 

WORK IN 2016/2017:

 

I am a representative for Swindon on the Council of Partners of the AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) - this is an organisation which is there to preserve the Nationally important landscapes which surrounds us. My family and I enjoy the sheer beauty of our countryside and The Ridgeway!
