Steve is our Borough Candidate for Pyrford Ward in the 2021 Borough Elections. Steve has lived in and around the area all his life, going to school at Fullbrook School, having his first job in Brittens Music Store in West Byfleet and knows the area extremely well. He is passionate about protecting the character of the village, which includes the Green Belt of which Pyrford is rightly proud. He is an advocate of maintaining and protecting our roads and footpaths, ensuring safety for residents. He is keen on working collaboratively with County Councillor Liz Bowes on improving footpaths around the Maybury estate, a cause for concern for several residents. He sees Anti-Social behaviour as a blight and intends to work closely with the Conservative PCC in removing this scourge from our village, and removing those who come from outside the area to cause trouble, particularly around the West Byfleet end of the ward. For any local issues, Steve is always willing to have a conversation with residents and has a friendly and personal demeanour.
Steve is also our Constituency Agent, having taken on the role at the start of 2021. His job is to make sure all the i's are dotted and the ts are crossed regarding the political business of the association. He's there to get our candidates elected, to make sure all the paperwork is submitted correctly and to make sure our messaging is getting out through our literature and social media. He also works in a professional capacity with our MP. You'll often find Steve running the Zoom meetings if you have attended any of our events or selections.
