About My Website
I will be using the website to explain my new role as a Central Bedfordshire Councillor and hope that the site will encourage residents contact me with their queries. I'm also keen that residents should be able to follow me using social media (Facebook, twitter and YouTube). It also occurred to me that individuals might be interested in the questions that I ask at full council, as I firmly believe that Central Beds Council requires independent scrutiny of their decisions.
As an Ampthill Town Councillor since 1997, I'm aware of the issues affecting the community and now I'm a Central Beds Councillor, I'm also regularly attending the parish council meetings of Maulden and Clophill. So the website reflects the issues of the three communities and details the dates of upcoming town and parish meeting. Importantly, I aim to highlight the latest developments and consultations. The site will also carry details of the dates and venues for upcoming ward surgeries, that will enable you to speak to me face-to-face about your issues.
Lastly, the site aims to give you tools to empower you and assist you with some of the tools I've developed, such as the Ampthill.Info website, the Ampthill Welcome Pack and Ampthill Essentials Information Sheet.
