Neil has recently retired from over 30 years public service in local government in Museums and the Arts. He was re-elected to Barton Town Council in May 2019. He was a Green Party councillor on Glanford Borough and Barton Town Council in the 1990s and has been a Governor at two local schools for 20 years. A keen gardener and allotment holder, he’s passionate about protecting the natural environment for future generations. He strongly believes we must balance environmental protection with social justice and economic fairness, to ensure a future for the common good - for the majority, not just the few served by all the other political parties.
I was re-elected to Barton Town Council in May 2019. I am now retired but worked in Community Development, and I agreed to stand because so many people asked me about problems I thought I should be in a position where I might be better able to help them out. Also, I wanted to put the Green point of view when matters such as planning were being debated. Greens don’t like waste and are in favour of conservation and helping those who need it
