I have been proud to represent the residents of Up Holland as your Labour Councillor since 2012. My family were born and bred in Up Holland and I have made my home here for the last 25 years. I listen to and understand the ambitions, aspirations and concerns people have on a daily base. 

During my time as your Labour Councillor, I have protected the war memorial from over development, worked with the police on speeding, supported community organisations and projects in Crawford Village, Tontine, Roby Mill and Up Holland.  

I will be opposing the development at “Pimbo Bushes” and supporting the campaign to have our roads resurfaced and repaired properly after they have been wrecked by the Conservatives at Lancashire County Council. We will be developing the Hall Green site with Tawd Vally Developments Ltd (the housebuilding company set up by the Labour administration at West Lancashire Borough Council) to provide much needed new homes in our area.  

I deal with individual case work covering not only West Lancashire Borough Council but providing support across all individual needs. I undertake regular ward-walks with my fellow councillors and council officers. I’m also a member of the parish council.  

I would like to thank you for your continued support and hope that you can vote for me on Thursday 2nd May 2024, so I can continue to work with you across Up Holland, Crawford, Tontine and Roby Mill.
