    About the Community Council

    At the grassroots level of government in Wales, community and town councils are accountable to local people and have a duty to represent the interests of the local community. Community and town councils enhance the local government system as a whole and provide a number of benefits to the communities they serve including local responsiveness, the dedicated representation of local interests, the ability to mobilise community activity and the capacity to supplement and enhance the services and facilities operated by the County Council.

    Higher Kinnerton Community Council isprogressive in nature and members work collaboratively with other public-sector organisations for the best outcomes for our residents. We listen to our community and plan our activities accordingly. This is reflected in our long-term investment plan which ensures our village is both socially and financially sustainable.

    The themes of Community, Commerce and Communication are reflected through all Higher Kinnerton Community Council activities and with the changes happening in local government and the need for communities to work together to support and deliver community services, the Community Council set about prioritising links with our residents to communicate, engage and deliver.

    Relatively new to the village, I moved here at the end of 2018 from Chester, having retired at the end of 2017 as a Dispensing Optician with my own practice in Cumbria. Previous experience includes many years in the IT industry followed by a rewarding career as a landscape photographer. I was chair of Governors at our local village school in Cumbria for 6 years and also helped with a variety of village-based projects, including the planning, development and maintenance of our village play area. I am recently married, and also have two children and two young grandchildren to keep me occupied!

    I have been a local resident for 2 years living on Kinnerton Road, although I have lived within the nearby area for 12 years in total. I came to study at the University of Chester and never went back! I would like to remain a local resident for many years and hope to see the village prosper as much as possible.
