Bewdley Town Council Candidate for Bewdley West
Candidate for Bewdley West
I arrived in Bewdley twenty five years ago, having been appointed as a lecturer in mathematics at Kidderminster College, and have enjoyed every moment of my life as a resident. Within the town we have all the amenities and facilities one could ask for; schools, surgery, library, parks, and a wide range of businesses for such a relatively small area. We also have so many thriving community groups that are so well supported, the cinema, live music, exhibitions, and a host of events throughout the year.
Being retired, I have the time to help my daughter run the cafe in Bewdley Museum, which has given me new skills, and an insight into many of the issues that are faced by the Town Council. Town Councillors have few powers of decision making, but I see all of them working to the good of Bewdley, and influencing the wider political arena.
I am a Quaker, and as such see the good work of all the churches in the town. I’ve long been a supporter of refugees, helping families settle into Wyre Forest, and collecting donations for those abroad. Recently I’ve helped set up Bewdley Anti-Racism Group.
