I was delighted to be elected to represent the communities of Redditch South along with my colleague Craig Warhurst in this shared division. We will serve you, your families and our local area with passion and dedication.

Worcestershire saw some great results and an increased majority on the County Council overall for the Conservatives. Congratulations to colleagues who were elected or re-elected and commiserations to those colleagues who missed out. I also pay respect and thanks to outgoing members of the Council.

Maintaining this high water mark as a party will be hard work, but can be driven by delivery of our promises and keeping well connected to our local communities. I started my term of office on Monday 10th May and I’m looking forward to getting started. There’s a lot of work to be done.
