A message from MALCOLM BARRON

ABOUT MYSELF.
I was born in Tarleton and attended the local Primary School and Hutton Grammar School and the Lancashire College of Agriculture. My two children both attended local Schools, and I am proud to be a Governor of Tarleton Community Primary and Tarleton High. One of my concerns is that School leavers find decent jobs or further education.
I have my own Market Garden and have spent over 20 years in the Agricultural Supply Industry. I have been a Director and Company Secretary of an Agricultural Company.

COUNCIL WORK.
I was elected as a Conservative Councillor in 2005 I feel that my contacts and experience will be of great use to the Parish Council .Indeed I have worked well with both Banks and Hesketh Bank Parish Councils and have obtained LCC grants for them. If elected I also feel that I will gain a greater awareness of the problems of the Village and will be able to pass them on and hopefully solve them.

ROADS.
Lancs County County is responsible for the maintenance of the roads and foot paths and I am in weekly contact with the Highways Manager reporting Potholes etc.because of the limited money available he can only make do and mend (LCC is controlled by the Labour Party).I have spoken many times at County Hall about the roads and also the Green Lane Link the backing of the Parish Council would be most welcome.

RECYCLING.
Again at County Hall I obtained all party support for a review of the proposal to close Rufford recyling centre I would have appreciated some support from the Parish Council.

If elected I would like to extend the good working relationship I have with the District Councillors to the Parish Council.

MY AIMS.

  • Stop wastefull expenditure.
  • Work with Parish and District Councillors.
    Improve the appearance of the Village.
  • Ensure equal distribution of revenue throughout the village.
  • Continue the expansion of CCTV with the help of WLDC and LCC.
  • Listen to residents.
  • To return Parish Council meetings to Mondays to enable District Councillors to attend.
