Section 3: Community Involvement

I attend regular meetings with Community Housing and participate in the walkabouts around the ward, where a variety of issues affecting both Community Housing tenants and those living in private accommodation are considered. I maintain regular contact with West Mercia Police via the Safer Neighbourhood Team to discuss problems raised by residents and issues that I see on my regular walks around the ward. I also liaise with Worcestershire Regulatory Services to follow up on complaints raised by and referred to me by residents.

Section 4: Assisting Constituents

I maintain regular contact with residents via a regular newsletter delivered to every house in the ward approximately four times per year. I also maintain a presence on social media posting newsworthy items that may be of interest to residents or provide information that they may find useful. Additionally, I am a member of some residents' groups on Facebook, and I am able to engage with residents. I act sometimes as an intermediary between residents and their neighbours or outside organisations to offer assistance or information. Residents are able to contact me either by email or telephone, my contact details are published on every newsletter I deliver, and my details are also available on the Wyre Forest District Council website.

Section 5: Supplementary Information

As a councillor elected by the residents of my ward, I am there to provide assistance and information on a variety of matters and will always endeavour to provide such even if the issue falls outside the scope of the district council. In addition to being a councillor for the district council I am also a councillor for Worcestershire County Council and thus if contacted by a resident with questions or issues relating to highways or other matters reserved for the County Council, I am able to provide assistance.
