SAM BANKS

ELECTION STATEMENT

Vote for a person not a party in the election of a Hedon Town Councillor.

ABOUT ME

I was born in Hedon, living my early years down St. Augustine’s Gate and my earliest memory is looking longingly out of the front room window at the puppies in the pet shop!

I was educated at Hedon County Primary School and then South Holderness Secondary School before moving onto Hull College. I work for one of the Big Four Accounting Firms, where I have worked for the last 27 years specialising in Trust accounts.

I am married to a firefighter and have two grown sons and two dogs.

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

In my spare time I am actively involved in the local community as a Committee member, Secretary, Treasurer and Bookings Officer for the Alexandra Hall, of which I have been involved with since early 2014. I am also a volunteer delivery driver for the Hedon Community Food Bank, serving the vulnerable and those in need in Hedon and the surrounding area. I have done this through the COVID-19 pandemic and will continue to do so going forward.

AIMS

Being Independent is about putting people before politics. I want to be able to understand your issues and concerns and take them to the Town Council, whilst representing you, the residents, in helping to keep Hedon the thriving market town that it has always been, balancing moving forward with the times whilst also protecting its heritage.

LEWIS KIRKBY

ELECTION STATEMENT

“Vote for me on the 4th November for a young, vibrant Town Councillor for Hedon”

A little about me

I am 27 years old and work full time in a local government role as a supervisor. I am not aligned to any political party, I don’t have a great interest in politics just in helping out with the local community, I have recently moved to Hedon where I now live with my partner after living in rural North Lincolnshire most of my life.

I was previously on the local parish council where I helped to gather funding and put in place village hanging baskets, Christmas lights and a carol concert, as well as been the snow warden for 3 years.

My Goals

To help keep Hedon an attractive place to live, visit and enjoy. Represent and be a voice for young people in local issues. I am passionate about community events and keen to get involved in local community projects whilst drawing on my experience to try and build on the town’s floral displays, festive offerings and tourism.
