Further to recent election and co-option processes, we now have four new Parish Councillors – bringing us back up to our full quota. You’ll find further details on the Parish Council website, but here’s a brief introduction.
Sue Matthews, Flawford Ward
“I’m 54 years old and moved to Ruddington 8 years ago. I’m married with one daughter. I enjoy using the good variety of local facilities in the village and can regularly be seen out walking in and around the village with my dog! My local issues of interest include how the village responds to new housing developments and their impact on Ruddington. I’m also keen to get involved in events that increase community feel.”
Sarah Godfrey, Manor Ward
“I’m married with two young children. I work for two art galleries and volunteer at a school. In my spare time, I’m a keen gardener and sometime author. I’m also an art lover. I’m especially interested in preserving our village but at the same time, embracing positive change. I hope to bring the perspective of a parent of young children to the Parish Council.”
Ian Wilson, Easthorpe Ward
“We moved to Ruddington to be nearer family and for a great place to live. I’ve been a school governor at James Peacock, coached local youth football, campaigned against changes to the school buses and to protect Sellor’s Playing Field. I’m interested in all issues Green, including traffic levels of traffic in the village, protecting undeveloped land, and developing the local economy. I also care about accessibility and inclusion.”
Eddie Storr, Manor Ward
“I’m a 37 year old father of two and an active member of Ruddington Cricket Club. I’ve lived in the village since February 2017, but my links with Ruddington date back many years. My local issues of interest include maintaining Ruddington’s unique community spirit, increasing the provision of outdoor leisure activities and balancing the needs of our village against housing needs, as pressures continue.”
