I was given the honour of being elected as one of your Conservative councillors in Kinson North in 2011 and re-elected in 2015. One of the first things that I realised was just how historic Kinson is and how it was moving forward, regenerating itself and becoming such a special place to live and work in.
Since 2011, I have worked hard to help this area establish its unique ‘Kinson Village’ identity. With this in mind, I have become really involved with the Kinson Business Forum and the North Bournemouth Area Forum with a real focus on getting things done to put Kinson on the map where it belongs. That’s why I’m so pleased to see the new War Memorial and the Memorial Garden.
I also welcome Tesco to the area as a symbol of economic regeneration and new jobs. What’s more, I’m excited about the plans for a new cycle route along the Stour Valley, to join us to Hengistbury Head. As a councillor, I have a social responsibility towards the people who I am fortunate to represent. I am very involved with the Kinson food bank at St Andrew’s Church and organised two food bank fun runs to raise funds for and the profile of our food bank.
