Local Lib Dem member Beckie Calder has been chosen to represent the party in the upcoming local elections. Beckie will stand in the Tudhoe division for Durham County Council and the Low Spennymoor & Tudhoe Grange ward for Spennymoor Town Council.
Beckie is Spennymoor born and bred, a mum to three boys who cares deeply about the town and local community. She is keen to join a strong team of Lib Dem councillors at County Hall and will look to stand up for local families by ensuring the Town Council provides value for money services.
Beckie commented, “I really want to do something to help my local community and feel I can be a strong voice for local people. I care about the area and will always be prepared to listen to the concerns and issues raised by my fellow local residents.”
“If elected to the Town Council I’d love to see what further improvements could be made to the Cow Plantation Nature Reserve and would like to promote more family friendly events as we come out of lockdown restrictions such as picnics, family litter picks and fun days.”
Beckie has previously been involved with the Friends of St. Charles School where her son attends, helping the organisation secure funding through the AAP ‘It’s Up 2 U Event’.
In other community activity she has volunteered as a front of house helper for shows put on by Spennymoor Stage and Song at the Town Hall.
Over the last year or so Beckie has often walked round the local neighbourhood and has regularly reported issues to the local council to have fixed. Beckie comments, “I’ve reported damaged street signs and broken seating as well as overflowing litter bins and dog fouling. I’ll continue to get around the area and look to get the things sorted that bring our area down. Please support me on May 6th to be one of your voices on Durham County Council and Spennymoor Town Council.”
Promoted by Mark Wilkes, Petite Mer, St Oswald’s Square, Durham, DH1 5ET for and on behalf of Beckie Calder (Lib Dems).Leave a comment
