Work in the community

·         I have completed 75 cases/enquiries and have 21 ongoing: such as housing repairs, re-housing support, traffic issues, road markings, potholes, fly tips, graffiti, contaminated bins, water main repairs, speeding cars, ASB, school crossings, Licensing issues, street furniture repairs, identifying diseased trees, school placements, benefits advice/signposting and even informal meetings just to chat and give emotional support at stressful times. On top of these I have answered many enquiries that have come in from Messenger on Social Media.

·         I was proud to assist source and install a Community Piano in a local supermarket café by arranging transportation, and then had it ‘tuned up’ using my own personal money from the small Councillors Allowance ‘pay rise’ received in May 2022.

·         I run a local Facebook Litter Group and personally go out litter picking almost every week, my group currently has over 260 members, many of whom I have provided with their own litter picking equipment through local businesses donations to enable them to keep areas of Failsworth litter free.

·         Plus, I coordinate a monthly clean up on the Failsworth stretch of Rochdale Canal.

·         I also facilitate and take part in weekly local short walks for all ages and abilities, which helps residents meet other people thus preventing loneliness and promotes wellbeing.

·         Currently on the Health Scrutiny Committee and the Audit Committee.
