Suffolk County Councillor for the Gainsborough Division
I have been a resident of Ipswich for many years and a former borough councillor for 22 years. During this time I have been a leader of Ipswich Borough Council empowering residents to improve their neighbourhoods and lives. I was widowed eleven years ago after we lost Russell to cancer. I have two daughters and six grandchildren. Since my husband died I have moved into the town centre ( I think they call this downsizing)! Politics has been in my blood since childhood and I enjoy working with residents to to tackle issues and concerns that affect their everyday lives.
Supporting Young Adults
Helping The Community
I want to see local Councils recognise the needs of our young adults in Ipswich and especially in Gainsborough and this is why I am so supportive of the BMX track which is now up and running and being used by local young people.
Protecting Our Neighbourhoods
For Generations to Come
Ipswich is renowned for its beautiful parks which provide residents with green spaces in which they can socialise, relax and play. Gainsborough is fortunate to have Landseer Park and the Orwell Country Park on its doorstep.
Having established a Friends Group for Holywells Park I would support an initiative of this kind for Landseer Park. A Friends Group enables communities to work together on improving the environment and complete projects that everyone within the community can enjoy and benefit from. Some of the projects we have seen include wildflower planting, beehives, work parties and community social events.
Update to Orwell Bridge Closure
Keeping us Moving
The Orwell Bridge has for many years caused local residents and visitors huge disruption when it is closed due to high winds.
Following the hard work of Tom Hunt our Member of Parliament Highways England have made the necessary changes to ensure that the bridge can stay open during bad weather (within the realms of safety).
