Section 5: Supplementary Information
I am an Architects Assistant and have an Architects Practice within the Wyre Forest District, this experience of running my own business along with the knowledge and experience that I have gained from my profession has helped me a great deal within my role and especially on local and district planning issues and as a committee member on the District Council's Planning Committee.
I also have experience of working within local government from my past employment and assisting residents with problems and issues.
I have an excellent relationship with the schools within my district seat and have experience in special educational needs and was an active member on Cookley Primary School's PTA committee.
I have donated some of my local funding to the local primary schools for specialist equipment and books.
I have also provided funding for a new initiative at Wolverley High School for their monthly coffee afternoon with elderly residents and school children where they talk about issues and problems.
I was an active member of the Cookley Bonfire Committee assisting and organising the event.
I always support the church events within my district seat throughout the year.
