I am delighted to be standing as the Labour Party Candidate for Hale Central Ward in the local council elections.
I have lived in Hale for over 20 years and my children have attended local schools. I have a keen interest in education having served as both an infant school and a grammar school governor for many years.
Having worked for the Open University I can also appreciate the need to support those who take up further education in adult life, in many cases when their childhood education system has let them down.
As a retired person I value the provision of local health, leisure and social services, and will campaign to save them.
Please support me and vote Labour on 5th May 2016.
