Happy New Year
I’d like to wish all the Ormesby Ward constituents a Happy New Year. This year has started with an exciting new project in our Parish of Ormesby St. Margaret with Scratby. We have a new Working Party to review and maintain the Parish Recreation Ground and Playgrounds. I am honoured to have been appointed as the Chair of the Working Party.
We have already entered into a consultation period to seek public opinion on improvements and facilities for the Recreation Ground and Pavilion. We have set up a new website, facebook page and twitter account. For all the latest information, please visit www.ormesbyrec.org

My open letter to the editor of Great Yarmouth Mercury
I would like to address some of the analysis around the two Independent gains at the Great Yarmouth Borough Council elections last week. The rhetoric from Mr Brandon Lewis suggests that the constituents of Fleggburgh ward and my own Ormesby ward is that this was simply a protest against the lack of resolve over the Brexit issue. I feel that he does a disservice to the voters, Adrian Thompson and myself.
To be clear, both the Fleggburgh ward and the Ormesby ward had the two highest turnouts by percentage in the local elections. Both wards were amongst those with the fewest spoilt papers. Both wards were previously strong Conservative seats. One of my constituents is quoted as saying, “You could put a dog up as a Tory and it will still get in!”
I would like to air another suggestion as to why both Adrian Thompson and myself were selected as Borough Councillors for our wards. We are both community driven individuals, both working with charitable organisations and community groups for the improvement of the lives of our constituents and beyond.
Of course, I did meet with many constituents who were, and likely still are, disillusioned with the current Brexit process. However, these individuals were also very pleased to have had the opportunity to meet their candidate face to face and discuss local issues. If the Conservative Party had not made their own naive judgement that rural seats are “safe”, they may have taken the time to speak with constituents.
I congratulate Councillor Thompson on his emphatic win. I believe that he will put great effort into the position of trust he has so rightly been afforded. I am equally aware of the trust placed in me by Ormesby constituents.

So grateful to all those constituents of Ormesby Ward who turned out to vote. A turnout of 34.5% and 72% of those voters selecting me as their Borough Councillor. I will do my best to justify those votes and support our villagers. I’m looking forward to serving you all.
