Carol Warren: Lickhill
"I believe a lot can be done to develop Stourport's potential as a tourist centre, as well as a thriving place to live and work, so if elected, I want to play my part in that aspiration."
I have lived in Stourport for over 40 years and found it a great place to bring up a family.
Although now officially retired, I still keep busy having a passion for community engagement which revolves around my voluntary work, and helping to care for my grandchildren.
I have considerable experience having previously served as a local councillor for some 12 years, as a Board member on the Health Trust, and as both a school and college governor. My volunteering roles are focused mainly on supporting people with dementia by working alongside their carers, as well as church activities.
Having lived locally for a long time, I am saddened to see the lack of investment in developing the Town’s infrastructure as well as the lack of ambition of the District Council in promoting the rich history of the area. I believe a lot can be done to develop Stourport’s potential as a tourist centre, as well as a thriving place to live and work, so if elected, I want to play my part in that aspiration.
On that note, if I do get your vote and become a Councillor, I would work with my Labour colleagues to advocate for a fair share of resources for Stourport, ensuring the views of Stourport’s residents are heard when decisions about investments are made.
