I am very proud to have been selected by Lymm Branch of the Labour Party to fight the Borough Council seat on 5th May.
One reason that I decided to take on the fight was to retain the Youth & Community Centre in the middle of the village for the use of the whole community, the Borough Councillors plan to knock the building down and build apartments seemed like the most dreadful thing to do in a village where we have very little large areas for people to meet and socialise or train.
The success of the Junior Youth Club is down to a great team who I work with on a Wednesday, and young and eager under 12’s who attend to socialise and do craft projects.
Local people know that I will work hard for any issue that will make our society fairer.
Luckily my experience as a Head of Department in a Secondary School and in prison has helped me plan projects that help fill the gaps that the Tory inspired National Curriculum causes. In 1993 I left full time teaching as I became Head of Design Technology without any adequate training.
I decided that my job as a Home Economics and Child Care teacher would benefit those less fortunate educationally and I began my work educating prisoners in Health and Well Being as well as Cookery and Food Hygiene qualifications. My proudest moment was to receive an Ann Frank Award for ‘Making a difference to others’ and that is what I will do if elected
