Work in the community


During my first year as Ward Councillor for Waterhead, I have supported the following groups/organisations/services:

              Waterhead Warriors RLFC under 13 Girls Team

              NEON Hub

              Sholver, Moorside & Watersheddings Flower Show


It has been difficult to fully engage with residents and community groups due to the continuation of Covid-19 restrictions. Emergency support and assistance has been prioritised; working with partner agencies and council employees to engage with hard-to-reach groups. This meant that some of the ‘usual’ casework has taken longer than usual to deal with.


Face-to-face Ward Surgeries were able to take place again from October 2021 and have taken place on a monthly basis since this time.

Face to face Ward Surgeries take place on the first Saturday of each month between 10am – 11am at either ViP Cabin – Waterhead Park, NEON Hub or St Barnabas Church Hall. Please contact me for details.
