Why I am a Councillor:
“My main reason for being a Councillor is that I hope to make a difference. I always feel that wherever I live, I should be part of that community and should involve myself in all that happens there and be able to give something back. When I could no longer work I found I had a lot of free time and wanted to put it to good use. If I can make Bedale a better place to live and work then I will be happy.”
What I want for Bedale:
"I want to see Bedale go from strength to strength…to be a lovely place to live in, work in and to visit. I am a realist and realise that to prosper we have to move with the times. We cannot just rest on our laurels and say ‘Bedale is an old fashioned market town and that’s the way it should stay’ because that just won’t work. We have to keep pace with the 21st century but not let it spoil the feel of the town. This is the challenge we face."
