Message from Carol

"I am incredibly pleased to officially announce today that I am standing as the Liberal Democrat candidate for the Commons Ward in the upcoming by-election for the BCP Council on 6th May 2021.

Having lived in Commons Ward for nearly 17 ½ years, I feel I know the people and the problems which urgently need solving. As one of your Town Councillors, I have been working hard during the pandemic to solve problems such as fly-tipping & dog fouling in the ward & signposting residents to where they can get help with other issues.

Looking forward, I have a number of projects I would like to promote for a brighter future within the ward and in Christchurch in general, including :

• A drop-in facility for the elderly

• Annual one-day “amnesty” refuse collection to reduce fly-tipping By standing up and working with my community, I feel I can make a real difference and provide a voice for my residents within the BCP."
