Some October 2015 mini-updates from Piper's Hill councillor Anne Lee!

Speaking to Residents

During a street surgery in Cheyne Walk, I conducted a consultation on extended opening hours for the Kettering Skate Park and discussed the wild meadow sown by Natural-Ise with local residents. Following a street surgery in Woodcroft Way and Akela Close, one resident’s request for a new bin met with agreement from the Council’s environment services department.

Local Events

A range of firefighting vehicles were lined up for inspection at a breakfast at Kettering Fire station. I attended a controversial planning meeting on travellers’ pitches in Braybrooke. The Local Strategic Partnership event in October brought some interesting presentations but not the long-awaited discussion on child poverty. The Yards in Market Street is going from strength to strength and I have become a regular customer of The Bottle Mix which sells over 100 different types of beer.

Anne has been an active councillor for 5 years. She represented Pipers Hill on Kettering Borough Council, and now represents Windmill on the new North Northamptonshire Council. She was a school governor at St Edwards Primary School for 8 years and has been a Neighbourhood Watch co-ordinator for over 30 years. She has 3 grown-up children and lives in the ward, working as a freelance linguist. She is an impassioned supporter of community hubs, such as the Green Patch and the Grange Resource Centre. With a Master’s in political sciences, and a keen interest in improving the new authority’s communications with residents and businesses, she promises to be an active councillor with a strong voice, and is particularly interested in reducing carbon emissions and in supporting families with children.
