-- I wrote a letter to the paper continuing the Green Party campaign to bring our troops home and stabilise the situation in Afghanistan.

-- I got involved with The Big Care Debate on the future of care in the UK.

-- I supported a local commuter to try and improve cycle parking at Paddington Station.

-- I continued the Green Party campaign against tuition fees by writing a letter and taking part in a debate at Reading University.

-- We campaigned against cuts to PCSOs at Reading University and in the surrounding area.

-- I joined the campaign to end inequality resulting in low pay for women.


-- Following on from Green campaigning the Council is making moves to get the old Rupert Square Information Shop back into use.

-- It has taken over a year of pressure but we finally got the landlord who owns a fly tipping hotspot on Norton Road in Newtown to clear and secure the space.

-- Worked with various agencies to clear the Kennet Mouth seating area.

-- Got an extra litter bin for duck feeding litter on the Kennet Side.

-- Worked with the Council to get problem cars for sale removed from the unofficial garage forecourt on the Wokingham Road.
