I am delighted to be able to put myself forward for election in the ward of Staining and Weeton, my home ward. This fact is most important to me as I believe you can only represent an area that you care for and are passionate about. This is me; all my representations for our villages have an immediate effect on me and my family, so it’s in my own interest to do a good job for us all.
I have lived on the Fylde Coast from being 2 years old. As a child I lived and was schooled in Thornton, and attended Baines 6th form to study for my A levels. I have spent my whole working life in the area. My family and I have lived in Staining for the last 23 years and my children have all attended local schools. I am involved with many of the local community groups and have been for a great number of years. I take great pride in being part of both Staining and Weeton’s enviable communities; I consider our village way of life paramount and believe what matters to you as a resident matters to me as a resident.
I can be regularly seen throughout the villages at most events, and have more often than not taken part in the organisation of them. I have been on Staining Parish Council since 2010 and have served a year as chairman. The villages are very important places to me and I would like the opportunity to continue to represent Staining and Weeton at Fylde Borough, working alongside the other Conservative candidate John Singleton. All residents have my assurance that I will always have the best interests of our beautiful villages at the forefront of my representations should I be elected. I am your Strong voice for our Rural Communities.
