Ruth Williams for Crookham East
Ruth's a volunteer family support worker, and has lived and worked in Fleet for over a decade.
Through her position, she has been a witness to the appalling results of austerity cuts, especially regarding the destruction of the lauded Sure Start scheme. She strongly believes losing these vital programs will have multi-generational effects, and both children and their parents are already suffering.
Ruth cares deeply about making her community a great place to live, and is a member of Friends of Basingbourne Park, making it accessible to residents of all ages. She would like to work to see these and more facilities develop throughout the area, especially places dedicated to teenage services and recreation.
