I have been a town councillor for Hayle North since the end of March 2019. During this time I put declaring a climate emergency on the agenda for a full council meeting. The council voted unanimously in favour. Immediately after this I set up the Hayle Climate Action Group, which is actively taking steps to reduce our carbon footprint.
I am also on the steering group for Plastic Free Hayle. Hayle has now achieved plastic-free status, and I am the councillor responsible for liaison with our secondary school, Hayle Academy. I am also a town council delegate with West Cornwall Health Watch and The Towans Partnership.
I became a member of the CALC Executive in December 2019.
