This is to inform residents that I will be standing as Independent Councillor in the Local elections. I am doing this to enable myself to continue with the work that I have undertaken on behalf of residents since 2007, and to provide a recognisable voice and champion the needs of the local community. Over recent months I have had a number of requests, and lots of encouragement from a significant number of residents, urging me to stand as an Independent councillor on a non party political basis. People have told me that they wanted to be able to vote for a councillor that they are familiar with and not for new candidates that they feel have been forced upon them. Needless to say I have felt extremely humbled and quite overwhelmed by the support shown and so I have had no hesitation making the leap forward and declaring myself as a candidate. I am now asking for your support by voting for me.

Filled in, neglected and overgrown for probably 70 years, Paddington Lock on the New Cut Canal is beginning a new lease of life as an updated part of the New Cut trail. The New Cut Canal is probably the most intact length of the Mersey and Irwell Navigation the predecessor of the Manchester Ship Canal dating back to 1821 and although barges no longer sail on its waters, its tow path is popular with walkers and cyclists as a pleasant alternative to the busy A57 Manchester Road which runs parallel to it.
