I am a founder member of the Parish Council which was formed in 2005.
I have lived in Doxey since 1977 and have made many good friends and neighbours over the years.
When the Parish Council was formed one of the things we wanted to do was start a Youth Club up again. I helped to run the Youth Club voluntarily, then as a paid worker for a couple of years until Staffs County Council closed all the Youth Clubs and then I carried on voluntary until 2017.
I am pleased that the Church decided to carry on running the Youth Club as I feel it is greatly needed for young people to meet and enjoy different activities together.
I also feel proud as a founder member of the various things that the Parish Council have done to improve community activities in Doxey e.g.
· Funding pensioners Christmas dinner at the Church
· Grants for the Youth Club
· Providing dog waste bins
· The lease of the Football Pitch, now Rugby pitch
· Grants for Doxey Primary School
· Grants for the Church Gardens upkeep and Xmas trees
· The Redrow Park and the new equipment recently added (good to see so many children enjoying themselves)
I would like to thank everyone who voted for me to stay on the Parish Council during the election in 2019.
I look forward to continuing to serve on the Parish Council and to help make Doxey an even better place to live and more community activities and meeting new people who have come to live in Doxey.
