Cllr Sue McKendrick

I have lived in North West Leicestershire since1997. I have a number of community interests that keep me busy and I take time out walking and gardening. I have on occasion enjoyed other more lively activities: a parachute jump and a tandem sky dive. My employment was predominantly in social care spanning 33+ years and this work enables me to call on a range of skills and knowledge I developed to help in my work at the council and in my other voluntary work in the community.

I was co-opted to the Ashby Woulds Town Council in 2008 and in May 2015 I had the privilege of being elected to the NWL district council representing Blackfordby Ward. The ward covers Blackfordby, Boundary, Boothorpe, Norris Hill and Ashby Heights. This does mean some overlap with both my town council and district council wards covering Boothorpe, Norris Hill and Ashby Heights.

My main interest is heritage and I am a trustee with Moira Furnace Museum Trust and of Replan, the community building in Moira where the town council is based. I'm actively involved in Black to Green, a Heritage Lottery funded project focusing on the heart of the forest where the parish sits and I am keen to help protect key heritage assets.

The town council has an important role representing the people of the parish as the first tier of government and the opportunity to work with and represent local organisations, groups and individuals gives me great satisfaction along with a few challenges! Its work I will continue to do for as long as I am fortunate enough to be able to
