I have lived in the communities of Costessey and Bowthorpe for most of my life. Joining the Labour Party at a young age and campaigning for Labour in this community has been a pleasure. The difference and improvements Labour made in Bowthorpe over 13 years were considerable.
My concern remains keeping as much of these positive changes against the back drop of the Tory / Lib Dem savagery which seeks to destroy our valued public services and make the most vulnerable in our community pay for the mistakes of the Bankers recession. As one of the Bowthorpe City Councillors, I have a special interest in housing and community safety, and support the work Labour has achieved in City Hall to deliver new homes, investment and improvements to our local council housing.
