I am proud to be standing as the Labour candidate for the new East Suffolk District Council elections on 2nd May. Our new 'Orwell & Villages' ward encompasses both Trimleys and Kirton.
I always work hard for our community. I have been Chairman of the Trimley St.Mary Parish Council for the past 3 years, a Parent School Governor, Chair of the local Community Rail Partnership, Treasurer for an Ipswich Hospital Patient Support Group, and the Independent Examiner for the Bawdsey Radar Trust. I am a Trustee and Treasurer for the Trimley Station Community Trust set up with local residents to preserve the Victorian Trimley Station buildings.
I support the Port of Felixstowe, half of which lies within our ward, for the benefit of the local economy for which our shops and businesses depend.
I am passionate to preserve the rural character of our villages, maintaining their identity and keeping the roads clear of HGV container traffic. I have campaigned for weight restrictions, speed limits and placing monitors on the Trimley High Road. I have taken action to preserve established trees threatened by developers and I oppose all new building on our green field sites.
I would be grateful if could share this information with anyone who would wish to know.
Please contact me if you would like any further information.

Neville worked at the Port Of Felixstowe for many years ;
I started in the Dock Basin riding a moped as an Agent's runner in 1974. I joined FDRC in 1978, and when the basin closed in 2005 I transferred to the Mooring Division. When the dept was closed in 2013 we were all redundant, but I came back 6 weeks later working for Paul Brookes, and then in the Police Pass Office until 2016.
I was Branch Secretary of the staff TGWU from 1982 to 2012, Safety Representative from 1996 to 2012, and Member Nominated Trustee for the Port's Final Salary Pension Scheme from 1992 to 2014.
My profile can be seen on the internet on LinkedIn. I now work at Suffolk County Council, Mon- Fri, 9 to 4.30pm, which seems like part time after working at the port.
