Andrew, a retired Civil Servant has lived in the Northfields ward for 27 years. He now volunteers with the local Good Neighbours Scheme which supports mainly elderly people who are lonely or who need practical help. He is particularly concerned for those in our community who are homeless, in poor housing, disabled or vulnerable. If elected as a councillor, he would hope to be able to help improve their lives. Following his work as Northfields ward representative for the Labour Party, he is concerned about the lack of amenities in the Frenchs Avenue area. The area has been developed with no thought given to the needs of local residents.
Michelle has lived with her partner and children in the Northfields ward for the last 27 years. Michelle is keen to ensure Dunstable continues to thrive and be a place people of all ages can enjoy living in. She is particularly concerned that street lighting is poorly maintained in the Beecroft area, and can feel unsafe in some roads because of this. Michelle believes that alongside the rise in crime levels in the town, this has led to many people to feel unsafe.
