Grant Strudley, Borough Council Candidate for Whitegrove I have lived in Warfield with my family since 2009 and am proud to have represented Whitegrove as a Parish Councillor since 2017. During that time I have worked to get the Warfield Neighbourhood Plan adopted, giving residents a voice in planning and helping to reduce speculative development. I am committed to working to ensure we have the local services we need and to keep our community as green and pleasant a place to live as possible. As a senior education professional and member of Schools’ Forum, I have tackled, first-hand, the challenges faced by nurseries and schools, including tight budgets and the lack of services to support mental health and special educational needs. Consequently, I am committed to ensuring all our children and young people have the support they need and the best possible start in life. It would be an honour and privilege to serve Whitegrove.
