I have served as your Mancroft Labour Councilor for the four years leading the charge for our community against the Tories at County Hall successfully fighting the closure of our local children’s center, withdrawal of bus services and for a more visible police force.
Previously I have worked for Norwich in a number of roles including on Chief Executive of Norwich Door to Door, President of City College Norwich Students Union, a school governor and a foster carer for the YMCA. With the privilege of being your councilor, I have used my position to advance the needs of our community with the local police, the City Council, local businesses and our Labour MP Clive Lewis.
Like my fellow Labour County Councillor’s, I refused to benefit from the Tories greedy 17% increase in allowances, (against the recommendations of an independent pay review) and instead have used the money to directly benefit our community. This included St Augustine’s Lunch Club, St Martins Housing, St Edmunds training and street parties across the division.
During covid I led the co-op support of the foodbanks across Norfolk to help foodbanks with logistics, supplies and moving 44 metric tonnes of food. I worked with the local mosque to secure hot food for those in homeless hostels every day of the week during the coldest periods of winter. I arranged for the delivery of fresh food every week to the hostels during lockdown.
A labour-run county council will restore the Youth Service, invest in green transport, and provide social housing (which is 20% cheaper than affordable housing) through the County Council.
I have worked for you and your family. Please trust me again with your vote I will work equally as hard for you over the next four years, continuing to work on improving the quality of life for our unique community in the centre of Norwich and Norfolk.
