Dr. Annette Medhurst
Councillor for Wescott West
Annette lives with her family in Woosehill, and she is an active member of her local community. She a trustee at a charity run pre-school and a parent governor at my daughter’s school. She has held a number of voluntary roles, including work at the Royal Berkshire Hospital and at local schools. She is currently the manager at a local emergency food distribution charity which supports residents across Wokingham Borough.
Annette believes that the addressing the climate emergency needs to be at the heart of everything we do and inform the decisions that we make. The local Labour Green Vision for Wokingham Borough outlines our hopes for the future with bold non-negotiable commitments including opposing the expansion of Heathrow Airport.
Annette feels passionately that that everyone should have an equal opportunity in life. Working for a charity that supports households struggling with the cost of every day essentials has highlighted to her the challenges many residents face on a day-to-day basis. Time and time again she hear that property rental is too high leaving households struggling to make ends meet. Our community does not need more expensive executive flats, it needs council houses.
Residents deserve to live in a forward-thinking borough that allows everyone to flourish, provides opportunities for all and thinks about the future for the next generation. To achieve this, we need strong opposition on the council with representation across the political spectrum.
