I moved from Crystal Palace to Orpington in 2015 when I started working for one of the solicitors firms in the town. My family’s connection to Bromley goes way back.
I like the leafy environment and less congested atmosphere (when compared to Lambeth) that Orpington has to offer. We are lucky to have good rail connections to central London and still have the villages and rural surroundings of North Kent so close at hand. I enjoy country walks and visits to tea rooms on the weekend! Charitable causes I support include the Stroke Association and Crisis/homelessness charities.
The prompt for my candidacy has been the proposed Walnuts development: I don’t think residents’ views have been properly heard. I would like to represent those views, and work towards a more acceptable plan for Orpington town centre.
More generally, as a representative of the Lib Dems, I hope to bring a fresh, Liberal, perspective to Bromley Council.
