Worth Valley needs a seat at the table in Bradford Council to make sure their voice is heard in City Hall and to ensure decisions are made in the wards best interests.

I was born and raised locally in Bradford. I have extensive experience in senior leadership roles and I currently work as a General Manager in the leisure industry for a charitable social enterprise national organisation. My work revolves around key decision making, financial planning and working with the local community to promote health and wellbeing.

If elected on May 6th, I aim to work with key local groups across a range of sectors to help promote, recover and improve Worth Valley.

I am also concerned, like most people are, about the impact that Covid 19 has had on the local area and how it will be when we are “back to normal”. I will be doing everything I can to ensure key public services are up to the required standards for our community.

If elected I will:

  • Do everything I can to maintain the character and prosperity of the villages in Worth Valley – Haworth , Oakworth, Oxenhope, Cross Roads and Stanbury.
  • Work closely with local businesses and voluntary organisations to ensure as speedy a recovery of the local economy from the pandemic as possible.
  • Campaign against development on inappropriate greenfield sites like Sykes Road in Oakworth. Funding for our local schools and improving public transport would be high up my agenda I will work with local schools to ensure that students and teachers are well supported, to try and recover from the past year of closed schools due to government restrictions.
  • Work with the public health team at Airedale Hospital to make sure all resources are appropriately distributed to the relevant departments to ensure the help is there for those who need it the most.
  • Work with key community groups to ensure they get the support they need. Local litter-picks, weekly surgeries, ensuring parking issues are kept on top of all are hot topics, which will receive my utmost attention to try and improve Worth Valley as a place people love to be a part of.
I feel that there is a real need to have someone who will be real hands on in the local area and if you Vote for me on May 6th you can be sure Worth Valley will be well represented.
