I moved to Tintwistle in 2010 and have become actively involved in the community since then.
I am a founding member and Secretary of the Friends of Conduit Street Playing Fields, successfully securing nearly £70,000 worth of funding to completely rejuvenate the Children’s play area in the Village.
The Friends now organise regular events on the site to promote its use and build community spirit. I am also a parent governor at Tintwistle School which my two children attend, one of the organisers of Tintwistle Litter Action and a member of the High CVS Small Groups Advisory Panel, helping the project officer to support small, community led groups and projects.
I’m standing in Tintwistle Ward to help make this an even better place to live and to give residents a greater voice across the High Peak.
