Latest update from Cllr Stewart Gardner

“During my 8 months as a councillor, I’ve been involved in lots of casework for local residents in Simmondley.  Issues have varied widely: from planning to the positioning of litter bins, to weed killing and grass cutting in communal areas plus parking and traffic issues.
 
I am also on two council committees that scrutinise important work in our borough – the Community Select Committee and the Standards Committee. 
 
I’ve supported the campaign to save and preserve the phone box on the Simmondley village green which thankfully has had a positive outcome.
 
The most rewarding part of the role so far has been the ability to help out good causes via my councillor initiative fund. Here are the groups in our area that I’ve been able to help financially: The Glossopdale Harriers – who are creating  a community running track on the trail, a Simmondley beginners running group for women and girls – Mind Body and Sole, new equipment for Dinting Cricket Club, a grant for Glossop Community Allotment, I was able to help Glossop Table Tennis Club – who run an after school club at Simmondley Primary.”
 

About Stuart

“I’ve lived in Simmondley for 20 years and I care very much about the area and issues faced by residents. I’m standing in the council elections because I want to make a tangible difference to everyday lives and give something back to a community and an area that is a fantastic place to live. Huge cuts make it a challenging time for local councils but I would fight for this area and want to become your link with the local authority.

The issues that concern me the most are housing, planning, traffic congestion, the condition of the roads and health provision. I’ve lived with MS for more than decade and know just how limited and stretched our local health services are – they are crucial to me. I love Simmondley and the High Peak and feel lucky to live here – I want to serve the community and help make our part of the country as good as it can be”.
