How to Contact Me
You can visit me at the advice surgeries below or contact me by telephone or email.
Advice surgeries are where you are able to visit your local Councillor for your Ward, with any issues or concerns that you have, please check who your local Councillor is before attending the advice surgery.
Councillors will always try to attend their advice surgeries; however there may be times, when an advice surgery has to be cancelled or changed at short notice. There is no legal requirement for Councillors to keep the advice surgery open for the full time.
