As a resident of Melton Mowbray, I have enjoyed living here now for over 23 years. As a business owner based at Asfordby Business Park, I employ local people and am in touch with the needs of local working families.
I have represented the Dorian Ward at Melton Borough Council and Melton West at Leicestershire County Council for over 4 years.
Over the last 4 years, I have actively represented Melton Mowbray on the Adult Social Services, Health and Overview Scrutiny Committee and I was appointed Chair of Melton’s Highways Forum.
As an ex health professional who worked with adult social services and disability, I am very passionate to ensure we retain as much local services and as much care support as possible for the residents of Melton Mowbray. I have worked hard to retain the birthing unit and other medical services.
I work with the community and residents groups to prevent crime and anti-social behaviour as well as the on-going improvement plan. It is my belief that we should work closely with residents and not against them. Melton belongs to us all!
As Chairman of Melton’s Highways Forum I have been actively involved in securing £49.5 million of investment to establish the relief road by 2021.
As a lover of sport, having coached at Melton Rugby Club and been a member of the coaching team for Leicester Tigers, I am very passionate about physical activity and sport. We have a great team here in Melton who are working hard to ensure our leisure vision becomes a reality. Melton deserves a first class sports facility for all ages and abilities.
Melton is a great place to live, work, and socialise – I want to keep it that way!
