Angela Jacques - St Leonards

Fylde Borough Council

I have lived in St Annes since 1965. Initially working in the hotel industry and then 20 years in teaching - all ages and abilities. I have been involved with St Annes Carnival for over 35 years, the last 19 as chairman and an active guider for nearly 40 years. I am also on the board of the Ormerod Trust and the Volunteer Centre, Blackpool Fylde & Wyre, and a member of Fylde Arts Association, Lytham St Annes Art Society and Friends of St Annes Library. I was first elected to the Borough Council in 2007 and for the last few years have served as Chairman of the Public Protection and Licensing Committee. It has been a privilege to serve you as your ward councillor and I would be honoured to continue in this role with your support.

Jayne Nixon - Staining & Weeton

Fylde Borough Council

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.

John Singleton

Fylde Borough Council - Staining & Weeton WardJohn lives in Staining with his wife Geraldine. During this time he has served on Staining Parish Council for over 12 years. Two of these years as Chairman representing his local area, he created the Chairman's Project which has allowed for the village play areas and playing fields to be upgraded, benefiting the youth of the community.

John Kirkham - Warton & Westby

I was born in Blackpool Victoria Hospital. My family is well known on the Fylde, and I am proud to be the 7th generation to carry on farming on one of the oldest working family farms in the area. I attended Wrea Green Primary School and King Edwards Secondary School before studying a degree in Livestock Technology at Myerscough College. I am now in partnership with my Father at Ridgeway Farm as a dairy and arable farmer. I also complete Agriculture and Equine contract work throughout Warton and Westby and the Fylde, working closely with a local equine charity. I became a Warton and Westby Ward councillor in May 2017 and believe strongly in making the place we all live in a nicer and greater place to live, work and visit.

Bobby Rigby - Warton & Westby

I was born at Blackpool Victoria Hospital to a large family based in Warton with a farming background. I live in Moss Side near Lytham and attended Wrea Green Primary School and Carr Hill High School in Kirkham. My grandad began digging graves in Warton at St Paul’s church with my dad and I continued into the family business which we now operate together, maintaining fifty six church yards throughout the Fylde. Subsequently I trained to become a funeral director and we opened Marsdens funeral home in the heart of Warton six years ago. In this time I have met and spoken to many families and made some good friends. I am passionate about the local area and am honoured to be a candidate for Warton & Westby.
