I am writing to say thank you to the many residents (1,069) who felt able to give me one of their four town council votes in the Loughton Roding Ward last Thursday in the local elections.

I am looking forward to working as part of a team with Roding Ward’s three other town councillors.

A priority will certainly be the provision of a new playground on the recreation ground in the shortest time scale possible.

Roding Ward Independent Town Councillor
