2. What qualifications and/or experience do you possess that are relevant to the position of area committee member?
I have enjoyed my first two years representing members as an Area Committee member and believe this and the knowledge I have gained will be extremely useful as I seek to continue and develop my contribution to The Co-operative. I have a breadth of experience working in the wider community.
3. What other qualities would you bring to the role of area committee member?
As a native and resident of the area all my life, I have a deep understanding and awareness of its needs and aspirations and the part The Co-operative Group can play in this. I believe I am a careful listener and a good communicator.
4. What aspirations do you have for The Co-operative?
As an active member of The Co-operative Group and also the Co-operative Party, I am keen to see the continued success of The Co-operative. I believe this would lead to further rewards for members, staff and the area’s communities. I support the need for the Group’s values and principles to be devolved. I hope the Group goes from strength to strength, enabling it to achieve its aims in the community.
