Section 3: Community Involvement
I attend meetings of Bewdley Town Council, of which I am a member, and I also attend as many meetings of Kidderminster Foreign Parish Council and Upper Arley Parish Council as I can to keep up to date with current concerns in their areas of my Ward.
I attend meetings of the Friends of Riverside North Park when I can.
I am a member of the Management Committee of Bewdley Museum, an important part of the local scene which caters to local residents and the visitors whose presence supports both the community and the local traders who characterise the Town.
Section 4: Assisting Constituents
As a Ward Councillor, my main activities have been aimed at providing a service to the residents of my Ward by keeping them informed about local issues and responding to their complaints and enquiries, which involves telephone and e-mailed enquiries and visits to resident's homes.
Much of this work is based around the delivery of the bi-monthly ‘Matters' newsletter, which contains my telephone number and e-mail address.
Section 5: Supplementary Information
Being a Councillor is varied in interesting work, and mixes odd jobs such as litter picks on Millennium Green with chairing a committee meeting.
