My Plan for Sutton, Cheam & Worcester Park
1. Protect and enhance valued local health services
2. Secure more great school places for all children in Sutton
3. Make high street parking easier so local shops thrive
4. Improve transport links to give commuters a better quality of life
5. Take HGVs off residential roads surrounding Kimpton Park
6. A new GP surgery on the Sutton Hospital site
I have lived in Sutton for 28 years, building a small business and raising a family. Both my children were born in St Helier Hospital and educated in Sutton schools. I understand the local issues that concern you because I shop in the same shops and drive on the same roads.
A regular volunteer at St Helier Hospital, a school governor, a governor at SCOLA and a former Councillor in Sutton, I have a record of standing up for local people.
