Carol said: “I have lived in Clarkson Ward for 35 years and am very conscious of the ongoing problems within this area. One of my main priorities recently has been the enhancement of Wisbech Park and the safety issues that need to be addressed to make the park a more desirable place. Therefore I have been Vice-Chairman of Friends of Wisbech Park.
“I am involved with many community activities including being a Governor at The Orchards School and the NHS Foundation Trust. I am trustee of the Citizens Advice Bureau and member of the Bowthorpe Centre Association for mental health and attend Chamber of Commerce meetings to ensure the town centre is not forgotten with all the out of town developments.
“We need more facilities for our young people as they will be the responsible adults of the future. The recession will affect all of us in different ways and I want to be able to support the interests of Wisbech and its citizens in every way I can. I believe I have always been very approachable and helpful to all my electorate and with your support on May 5th I hope to be able to continue.”
