District Councillor for Bookham West

I have lived in Fetcham for nearly 30 years and feel very lucky to have spent those years in such a friendly and inclusive community. I graduated from Exeter University, my early career was with BP and subsequently in a software development company which my partner and I started based in Leatherhead.

The many years I spent working in HR have given me the interest and desire to listen to peoples' concerns and ideas and to make sure that these are heard and actioned.

If I am re-elected the following are some of the issues I would work hard on to address:

As the war in Ukraine rages on we must continue to support those poor people forced to leave their homes and country.

Here, at home, the huge rise in the cost of living is already causing hardship for many, forcing them often to have to choose between food or heating; and this is only likely to become worse. We must find ways to ensure nobody has to make these choices.

The need for us all to make changes to cut carbon emissions continues to be an essential priority. Our national government must lead this but locally we can be the voice that is listened to so change happens. We do this for our children and grandchildren who have inherited a world we, at best, unknowingly, have put at risk.

Everyone should have access to free health care and our wonderful NHS have shown us what an amazing job they do, particularly in the face of the phenomenal challenge in fighting the COVID virus. We now must fight to protect and maintain this jewel, both in our local community and nationwide.

The housing shortage is another massive issue that needs careful balancing to try to ensure that affordable housing can be delivered without damaging the countryside we enjoy.
