I believe that our parks and green spaces are of vital importance to our community. We all know that our neighbourhood isn't perfect but one of the things that brings us together is the desire to protect and improve our parks.
Transport is one of the issues that always comes up when ever I talk to local residents. This is obviously a varied topic but a hugely important one - especially considering all of the traffic that we will 'inherit' when the new housing is built in South Gloucestershire.
Last year 52% of the British people, including myself, voted to leave the European Union and leave it we shall. I personally found the whole campaign deeply dividing and unpleasant and the language by both sides was appalling.
One of the long term ambitions for our local communities has been to deliver a new Community Centre. Since last summer I have been working with small group of local residents in order to turn the old Henbury Centre on Machin Road (behind the the Library) into such a centre.
