I HAVE lived in Whitchurch Hill for 17 years with Mike and our two daughters, who both went to local schools and The Henley College.
Before I retrained as a teacher in 2006, I worked for major charities including Age Concern and also for a Housing Association.
Since moving here I have been an active member of our community, including being a governor of Langtree School and leading the fund-raising and development of our local playground. I am active in the campaign against the disgraceful proposal for a 50 per cent rise in toll charges at Whitchurch Bridge.
My priorities for Kidmore End and Whitchurch are to:
• Conserve our beautiful countryside. Cameron promised to lead ‘the greenest Government ever” but attempted to sell off our forests, repeal the hunting ban and cut funds for flood defences
• Fight so everyone would be able to live in a home they can afford in the communities where they have their roots. Conservative policies and an acute housing crisis have been responsible for house price inflation and a shortage of homes for young families, teachers and nurses who cannot afford to work in our area.
