Section 3: Community Involvement
Elizabeth Mills Centre – I am WFDCs representative on the Management Committee. I try to help resolve problems in the running of the centre. I also attend with my wife Janice one of their lunches at least once a month.
Stourport Civic Society – I am an elected member of their Committee and help at their monthly meetings.
Stourport St Michael's Dementia Café – Janice and I attend most of their meetings twice monthly.
Section 4: Assisting Constituents
I offered my services to the local covid support group on 2 occasions but heard nothing from them. Probably due to covid, I have not received many contacts from constituents. The most memorable problems were with a lady who had received bills from Community Housing, which she disputed. Another was in respect of street lighting in which a lamp post had been removed and there was a three-month delay in replacing it, someone had tripped over in the dark and hurt themselves as a result.
Section 5: Supplementary Information
Having lived in Stourport for 45 years, I am well known in the community. People do ask me questions about WFDC from time to time.
