Wokingham Constituency Labour Party On Your Side in Wokingham Constituency
Tim Lloyd is retired and has lived in Woosehill for 25 years.
Recently, he has been heavily involved in Labour’s campaign to save Wokingham’s Crown Post Office.
Tim said, “I have spoken to hundreds of residents and people are absolutely clear – Wokingham’s Post Office must stay in its historic building.”
Tim is also concerned about over-development in and around the Woosehill and Evendons ward. A member of the ‘Friends of Fox Hill wood’ group he is concerned that local green spaces are under threat – both in Woosehill and in the new developments south of the railway line.
As a neighbourhood watch representative, Tim is keenly aware of the problems caused by anti-social behaviour in the area.
“You cannot continually cut youth service provision and police funding and not expect there to be consequences”, he said. “Of course there is right and wrong, but we cannot just cross our fingers and hope society turns out ok, because it won’t. We have to invest in our young people and invest in our police”.
“A councillors’ role is not just to get elected and to disappear to the council chamber and committee rooms. A Labour local councillor’s job is to stand up for their community on all the issues which impact the community, not just hide away.”
“We have a small group of Labour councillors on the council and they are making a massive impact. It would be great to join them. The Tories just do not listen and having one party dominate the council makes for terrible local decision making – as we have seen with the management of the town centre regeneration.”
