Carol Haigh

Councillor Profile 

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.

Councillor Profile

Doxey Parish Council was founded in 2005 and I was one of the founder members. Doxey is the only part of Stafford Town to have its own Parish Council.

I also represented the community as Borough Councillor between 2007 - 2019

In 2019, eleven candidates stood for nine seats on the Parish Council and I welcomed this first opportunity for a contested election which gave residents the chance to choose their representatives.

As your local Councillor it is always a privilege to meet so many of you and deal with any matters of concern you have.

Councillor Profile

I have lived in Stafford since 1971 courtesy of the Royal Air Force and I have lived in Doxey for over 12 years

I have been involved in local football having run a Junior Team, Secretary for a Sunday Team then Match Secretary and Secretary for various teams for Stafford Town.
With my partner, we laid the groundwork which led to the formation of Stafford Town Dragons Disability Team. I was also Match Secretary for AFC Eccleshall in The County League.

I enjoy watching local football on a Saturday. I’m also a keen walker and I care about the local footpaths and their access. The local footpaths are well used by local people and with the new housing development we must make sure that access is maintained. While out walking we often see fly tipping - It’s a disgrace.

As a Parish Councillor I intend to voice the concerns of Local People regarding road safety, footpaths, management of open spaces, planning, crime prevention, fighting for services and facilities.

All these things impact on people’s lives and as a Parish Councillor I promise to listen to people’s concerns and raise those concerns to the appropriate authorities.
