Hi my name is Helen; I am a Blackburn lass and live in the Corporation Park Ward with my husband Paul. I am the owner and Managing Director of No1 Caterers Ltd, Blackburn, and am the winner and current holder of the Jane Asher Home Baker of the Year.
At the moment I am student studying Politics and History at Blackburn University centre. I keep fit by running with the Couch to 5k progression group three times a week. For six years I played badminton for Blackburn College Badminton club and we were the winners of the 2015 Smith Cup.
I am also a committee member of the Corporation Park Supporters Group and for three years was the Chairman. My main achievements during this office were:
Following council cuts, I obtained the funding for the implementation of the beautiful perennial planting scheme in the Gardens of Remembrance and the funding and implementation of the floral displays at the front of the park.
- Instigated the application for a Heritage Lottery grant for the restoration of the Grade 11 listed Conservatory in the park.
- Raised monies through various fundraising events such as car boot sales for the restoration fund.
- I also made links with One Voice to build relationships and commonalities. I also attended the One Voice Annual Dinner last year.
- I also designed and maintain the park web site.
I have also worked with local citizens and councillors on the ward on various activity days to improve the area. I am passionate about Blackburn, its success and its citizens and I will try my level best to resolve citizen’s issues.
Your Issues. My Voice.
