I have lived in Ashley for over 2 decades and has been my privilege to be an elected Green Party councillor since 2016. I worked for many years as a science teacher and have always been an environmentalist and a community activist.
I founded and still run a thriving community garden and orchard and am a long-serving trustee of our award-winning city farm down in St Werburghs. I became a councillor because I wanted to make sure Ashley residents have a strong campaigning and influential Green voice and I know I have made a real difference in the last 4 years.
I have helped young families in housing crisis and have gotten funding to improve to St Paul’s Adventure playground. I report and support residents with their complaints about waste and fly-tipping and have constantly fought for resources for the homeless and poorly housed citizens I meet across the ward.
When elected my priorities for the next for years will be to begin planting the St Paul’s urban orchard to begin the rewilding of the inner city and to continue to campaign for low car neighbourhoods where we can walk and cycle safely.
