Patricia Sullivan a strong local voice for Bamford
I have been proud to serve as your Councillor in Bamford for the past eight years and during this time I have successfully dealt with hundreds of issues, including:-
My vision for Bamford is to preserve the Green Belt for future generations and to encourage children and young people to participate in the wide range of sporting facilities:- cricket, tennis, football, rugby, archery and golf, all available in our Ward.
I will continue to liaise with the police and with residents who are helping to reduce crime by forming Homewatch and similar groups in their areas. I have already initiated some of these groups and they are proving successful.
As many of you will know, I regularly visit residents in sheltered accommodation; I attend many social and fundraising events in our area, for example the Dementia Café, Christmas Fairs and Garden Parties and coffee mornings to name but a few. Whilst it is always a pleasure to support such events, it is also where residents come to me with their problems and concerns, a crucial part of my work as a Councillor. I also hold three monthly surgeries where residents can come to see me more privately. I try to be available and am always happy to visit residents in their own homes. As a local Councillor, I have always prioritised local issues rather than party and national politics.
I have tried to give you a taste of all the things I have done, and am continuing to do, over the time I have been your Councillor. Far from being complacent about my work, I am fully aware that there is still much to be done, and rather than rest on my laurels, I am eager to continue to serve the people of Bamford to the best of my ability along with my fellow Conservative Councillors, if you are kind enough to vote for me in the forthcoming election on 2nd May.
