Section 3: Assisting Constituents

I have been a District Councillor of Wyre Forest since May 1992. During 2015 I was re-elected to serve the people of Bewdley & Rock Ward for the 7th consecutive election.

Living in the heart of my ward I meet and greet my constituents on a daily basis. I hold a weekly drop in ward surgery at 9am till 10am every Saturday. I circulate a regular newsletter to every house in my ward bi monthly.

I have dealt with over 3,000 constituency calls or emails relating to local matters and national matters and advice during the past 12 months.

I regularly deliver street newsletters involving my community on issues affecting them on a range of issues from Gladman's Planning Application, Gardeners Meadow Gypsy Travellers invasion and Calling for Sites for future development.

I applied for a Tesco's Carrier Bag Grant and won 8,000 which I then secured match funding for the resurface of the Bliss Gate Playfield project in the heart of my rural ward.



Section 4: Supplementary Information

Following the boundary changes in 2014 we saw Bewdley & Arley and Rock Wards merge with 1200 houses and 2200 additional constituents added to my Ward. Our regular newsletter is delivered to 5,000 households quarterly 6 times per year. This has added enormous pressure trying to get around and meet as many households as one would like. However in the summer of 2015 I was able to visit every household in the new Rock part of the Ward personally something I did again in the summer recess of 2016.

The Ward is very rural and whilst Bewdley Town is mainly urban, the rural parts of the ward make it a different and more interesting challenge with Rock Parish being the 2nd Largest Parish in England. We have three parish councils within the ward together with the un-parished Ribbesford of which I and my colleagues attend regularly and I believe that liaising with the parish councils and their councillors is essential to maintain community ties in particular in the rural areas.

We are the only political party in Bewdley & Rock that stays in touch with our constituents all year round not just at election time.
