Section 3: Community Involvement

During the last 12 months I have delivered 4 newsletters to the whole ward. These inform my constituents of all major issues I am dealing with and any achievements and improvements I have made across the ward. These newsletters also contain my contact details which makes it very easy for constituents to call me.

I have also delivered numerous tailored letters to individual streets concerning localised issues to update residents.

Section 4: Assisting Constituents

After 4 years of campaigning for road improvements on the Hoobrook Island I am delighted to see that work has finally started to reconstruct the island to increase capacity and to have traffic lights on 3 of the arms off the island. This 3.6m project is really important to tackle traffic congestion, especially on Wilden Lane and will do much to improve traffic flows.

I have had new LED street lights installed on the length of Hoo Road in my ward.

I have had new pavements installed on the Poplars Estate, Birchen Coppice Estate and Rifle Range Estate

I engage regularly on four closed residents Facebook groups across the ward, dealing with many questions and concerns

Section 5: Supplementary Information

I have a degree in History and Politics which helps my understanding of the intricacies of politics on a national and international level. I also help run the family business in industrial and commercial flooring which gives me insight into challenges and pressures of the private sector. I am also a member of Worcestershire County Council.
