Section 3: Community Involvement
PACT meetings have been discontinued. Monthly meeting or briefing sessions with the Boradwaters Policing team takes place.
Organisations and community groups that I have been involved with during the year has been most of the park groups in Broadwaters. I have attended a large number of their meetings and helped them with some of their events, and work in the parks including litter picking. I also periodically litter pick around the area where I live. I also have supported and help the group Horsefair and Proud.

I have also been engaging with the local scout and beaver groups here in Broadwaters, and supporting them when they have asked.

I am also attending the St Georges Pop up Cafe most months.

I meet have contact with the local police team on a monthly/bi monthly basis and highlight areas of concern.

I also liaise closely with Worcestershire Regulatory Authority with monitoring of areas of pollution who are keeping the local groups informed of pollution hotspots.

I have helped to facilitate some residents to form a residents group and/or join neighbourhood watch or other local groups as appropriate.

I am a member of HELP which is a new organisation to for the homeless and people in need on a weekly basis.

Section 4: Assisting Constituents
I have been managing a case load of about 3 or 4 a week over the last year from constituents, they generally contact me face to face when they see me in the ward as I regularly walk about the ward, or phone me or contact me by email. I try to keep them informed of the progress of their concern and raise it to higher levels if necessary. I try to respond to people within 24 hours when possible. One of the key concerns other than cars parking on the roads and pavements, continues to be Dog Fouling. I have responded to peoples' request for extra litter and dog poo bins when requested, which have appeared to alleviate the problem.

Section 5: Supplementary Information
Being a retired Health Care Professional I have found people contact me with concerns about the health care they are receiving , these can be wide ranging and I can signpost them to the appropriate organisation that can support them.

I am on the board of Trustees for the Kidderminster and District Youth Trust.

I also take an interest in the local scout/cubs and Beavers group, Talking newspapers and sight concern.
I am a Director of Holy Trinity Academy Trust and try to engage with the school at or on significant days during the school year.
