A bit about me
I have lived in Abbey ward for over 24 years. Three of my 4 children and 8 of my 10 grandchildren also live in the ward. I work for a Lincoln charity providing housing and support to homeless people. Previously I worked with women and children fleeing domestic abuse.
With 31 years’ experience in the Voluntary Sector working with children, young people and vulnerable adults I have seen how important it is to have strong communities that support the disadvantaged and vulnerable amongst us.
Abbey Ward has a massive amount of potential and I want to see it improve and grow with residents’ voices at the centre of everything that happens in the Ward.
My priorities for Abbey Ward
- Improve the area – working with the community to reduce littering, dog fouling, fly tipping and graffiti
- Work with local agencies – to tackle street drug use and anti-social behaviour, creating a safer area to live in
- Improve Housing – by pushing for enforcement against rogue landlords who rent houses that are not fit for human habitation
- Work with resident, voluntary and faith groups – to develop and grow their services, improving the quality of resident’s lives
- Improve our Environment – public transport, cleaner air and planting more trees
I hope you will join me in my vision for Abbey Ward, I look forward to meeting you, and with your support, to representing you on the City Council.
Endorsement – Abbey Cllr Kath Brothwell
Having served as your Councillor for the past 17 years it is time for me to retire and I am pleased to introduce Val Moore as Labour’s prospective replacement.
Abbey Ward is very diverse – from the Carlton Centre area, through the council estates of the Tower and Cannon Street to the many terraced streets off Monks Road – and indeed contains some pockets of the greatest deprivation within the City. This produces a vast range of problems to be addressed.
Val is acutely aware of many of these issues since she lives within the Ward – as do other members of her family – and has also worked over the years with disadvantaged young people. She has also recently become involved with the working of the Neighbourhood Board.
I have had the privilege of working on your behalf and I am sure Val will be a very worthy successor if elected.
If you want to raise a concern with Val you can get in touch with her directly by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
