Eleanor is starting her second term of office as a Parish
Councillor (1 term = 4 years). She first became involved in 2015, as she had
become annoyed with standing outside the corridors of power, shouting in,
wanting change, and nothing changing. She decided to try and join the local
parish council, and thoroughly enjoyed her first four year term.
She has lived in Doxey for over 13 years, is in her mid 40’s and has a teenage daughter. She feels Doxey is a thriving community, with many of us having the same aims for our village.
She created the action group DASH (Doxey Against Segregated Housing) to fight social injustice. The group successfully fought to remove additional affordable housing to be built in Doxey leaving an estate in Baswich with none rebalancing both neighbourhoods in a fair way.
She looks forward to doing even more, in her second term as a Parish Councillor. Having been the driving force in the starting of the Parish Council Newsletter, which is hand delivered through every single door in the Parish quarterly, more of our residents are aware of the Council, and how we work hard to help make Doxey a happy village.
