Continuing over the past 4 years to serve you in Brooklands Ward, I have had the opportunity to meet many of you as Deputy Mayor and enjoyed helping to raise money for charities such as Autism Bedfordshire and Macmillan Cancer.

As a member of the Cultural & Economic Committee, I have been proud to help bring forward the Youth Promise Grant Scheme, supporting such worthwhile organisations as the Naval Cadets, Fire Cadets and Boxing Club. 


If re-elected, I will continue to press for improvements in our expanding Town, such as the refurbishment of Pages Park Pavilion, whilst making sure that we continue to offer value for money.

Since being elected to the Town Council, I have campaigned for the improvement of our parks and pavilions, and am delighted that the refurbishment of Pages Park Pavillion is due to start very soon.


I have pushed for progress on the redevelopment of the south of the High Street and for the provision of infrastructure. The opening of Grovebury Road Retail Park is a welcome boost for the local economy, and will ensure shoppers stay in town rather than travelling further afield.


If re-elected, I will always put the interests of local residents first and fight to preserve the character of our much-loved Towna

I felt very excited that I was elected to become a town councillor for Grovebury ward in may 2016. My partner and I run a small business in Leighton Buzzard employing six full time members of staff. I have always been very active in the town in my spare time getting involved with volunteer projects such as Speedwatch, Streetwatch and the carnival committee.


As a town councillor my main area of interest is on the events that are staged within the town on an annual basis such as the big lunch food festival the canal festival and the Christmas weekend to name but a few. I will always be available to help residents within our town and the Grovebury ward in addition to supporting local groups.

We have lived on Sandhills for 15 years, our business is based locally, and I have been a Grovebury councillor for the past 4 years. I have a real interest in issues which affect residents, especially families, and in finding ways to make our community feel more connected.


I am currently involved in plans to formalise the road markings around the local school, to improve community safety. I have enjoyed being a town councillor since 2015 and am currently Vice-chairman of the Partnership Committee with CBC. I am always happy to help local residents whenever I can, and hope that you will elect me to represent you again. Thank you.

Fifty years old and with long experience in financial services, I believe that Leighton Buzzard is a great place to live. I want to maintain this view by helping to further develop our local amenities and facilities.


Our 5 year old daughter attends local school so, like many parents I am passionate about education and want to see social and leisure opportunities for young people as they grow, whilst also providing for the ageing members of our community.


I am determined to keep our Town both safe and pleasant for us, especially with the continuing population growth, so representing you in Grovebury Ward would be a privilege. Thank You.
