Election Statement

Having lived and invested 27 years of my life to Hesketh Bank, having had all 4 of my children attend Hesketh with Becconsall Primary School and been a parent governor and treasurer. Whilst also being actively involved in the family farm, on the marshes at Hesketh Bank, employing many Iocal people. I feel I can stand and say, I have experienced fully what it is to be a ‘Heky Bank’ citizen. What I believe I can offer to the Hesketh with Becconsall Parish Council is simple:

A clear vision needs to be established for Hesketh Bank and the residents. A quote I read recently said ‘Where there is no Vision, the people will perish’. This applies to all areas of life, where we have no hope, where there’s no goal, no purpose - people lose ‘Life’.

I believe this applies to our village; we need a clear vision, a target, an aim, a purpose. Where do we want Hesketh Bank to be in 1, 5, 10, a 100 years time, what things should it provide, for our families, our children, our grandchildren, our friends, and our community. I believe it should be a place where people love to live, a safe, friendly, clean, outstanding village.

This has to be our aim. Lets set the bar high, in a world that seems to be losing its head with procedures, policies and paperwork. A heart, a passion, a love and caring nature, needs to be found. Only when having discovered this together, can we take hold of the exciting future before us.

Hesketh Bank needs more than a quick fix, a ‘there, there it’ll be ok’. It needs peoples hearts to be impacted, then from the heart, will come an overwhelming desire to set aside our differences and make this place an amazing place to live.

I hope that whatever the outcome of these elections, that Hesketh Bank community will find it’s core, it’s vision and strive to reach it, with all it’s heart.

Yours sincerely,

Christine Farrington
