I am a ward councillor in Orton Longueville. I live in the ward and can often be seen walking around talking to residents. The Ortons are a great place to live with a real sense of community.
I have been a councillor for 5 years and enjoy working closely with both residents and the authorities. I believe there is always a common sense solution to every challenge. I believe in facilitating aspiration.
I have been a Cabinet Advisor for 3 years and have actively sought to raise the cultural aspirations of the City. This has meant working closely with schools and creative organisations throughout Peterborough. Indeed, I am extremely pleased to see the Peterborough Centre for Young Musicians opening in Autumn 2016 at Ormiston Bushfield Academy. We need to celebrate all the good things our young children achieve.
I am a trustee at Vivacity, the Nene Park Trust and St John's CIC. Other citywide responsibilities include Heritage Champion and Cycling Champion.
In addition to my Council duties I chair the Orton Longueville Parish Council and am a school governor at Brewster Avenue Infant and Nursery School.
