"I pledge that if elected I will do all in my power to fight for a fairer society, both in the Bewdley community and in the wider district."

I am 64 years old, married, and have two adult children. I was born and grew up in Kidderminster where I attended Proud Cross First School and King Charles 1 Grammar School.

After my career as a Geologist and Science Teacher elsewhere, I moved back to Wyre Forest in 2013 and settled in Bewdley. I am involved in the community as a volunteer Flood Warden and as a volunteer driver for Community Transport. This role, in particular, has given me a greater understanding of the need for better public transport in our area.

In August 2016, in response to a hostile planning application, I became a founder member and chair of the ‘Bewdley Says NO to Gladman’ campaign. This experience promoted an interest in and commitment to local planning issues and their importance to the community.

I was elected to Bewdley Town Council in a 2018 by-election for the Bewdley East ward. I am a member of the Planning and Community Development Committees, and have responsibility for the Bewdley Neighbourhood Plan process as Chair of the NP Community Steering Group.

I believe that social justice encourages community cohesion. It is too easy in times of economic constraints for disadvantaged members of a community to be overlooked, or even exploited. I pledge that if elected I will do all in my power to fight for a fairer society, both in the Bewdley community and in the wider district.
