Statement to voters

A Wanstead resident all my life, I attended Aldersbrook and Wanstead High Schools, before going on to Kent University where I attained my degree in law and industrial relations.

Full statement



I have worked as a journalist for the past 25 years.

I am a parishioner at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church.

I played a role in keeping Wanstead Police Station open – when it was previously under threat – after being mugged on Christchurch Green.

A committed environmentalist, I am an allotment holder, a member of Friends of Wanstead Park and the Wren Group. I am also part of the organising group for Wild Wanstead.

Most recently I have been involved with fellow Labour candidates in the campaign to restore a full service to the W12 bus route. As well as this I am keen to play a part in pushing forward with Labour’s proposals on increasing recycling and cutting pollution.

The Labour Council can boast a proud record over its past four years, despite the pressure coming as a result of 40% cuts in the budget from the Tory Government.

Not only has the council managed to defend and build on basic facilities, like the libraries and waste collection, but it is commited to building a swimming pool in Wanstead. The step free access coming soon for Snaresbrook station is another important achievement.

If elected, I will seek to ensure that our community is heard at the top table in the Town Hall. I want to stand up for Wanstead and be part of the exciting future for the area.
