My front-line role

I am the Conservative County Councillor for Welwyn division.

I represent the interests of around 14,000 residents in the communities of The Ayots, Digswell, Knightsfield, Oaklands & Mardley Heath, Welwyn and Woolmer Green.

Residents who wish to raise any issue with me are welcome to do so, whether by e-mail, letter or telephone. I will always deal promptly with casework issues.

As is the case with every County Councillor, I have a locality budget to spend on community projects in the division. I also have a Highways Locality Budget of £90,000 and am using it to improve footways and paths to help walkers and cyclists.

And a supporter of others such as RNLI, the Salvation Army,  the British Red Cross and Emmaus..
