Labour candidates chosen for St Martins and Ellesmere

Oswestry and District Labour Party has selected candidates for the St Martin’s and Ellesmere Urban ares for the Local Government elections in May this year.

The St Martins candidate is Natalie Rowley.

She said: "As a healthcare worker and volunteer, I have been busy throughout the pandemic supporting vulnerable people in the community, and I look forward to launching a positive campaign in St. Martins. I am currently working to improve broadband speeds in part of the area, along with looking to address the lack of safe cycle paths, as well as the increasing house building in the village."

Ellesmere Urban’s candidate, Alison Devismes said ‘ I come from a family who have lived in and around the town of Ellesmere for over 100 years and I love living here.

"I am passionate about looking after the town and its beauty but also what isn’t seen on the surface: issues such as anti-social behaviour, new housing and infrastructure. Ellesmere is a beautiful, unique town and I want to help it to thrive and develop, with its residents and businesses at the heart."

Further selections will take place shortly.

Karen Moore, Chair of Oswestry and District Labour Party, said: "Labour Party candidates will campaign hard to challenge the Conservatives’ strangle hold on Shropshire Council and fight for a fairer and greener future."
