I have lived in Oadby all my life and am very passionate about our area. Having lived here for so long I feel that we are very lucky to have such a friendly, neighbourly and multi cultural atmosphere and wish for my children and generations to come to have this too.
I am a mother of a young child so I am interested in activities for young children, their health and most importantly their safety. I campaign strongly on anti social behaviour, road safety (such as reducing speeding along Florence Wragg Way) and safe, pleasant parks for our community.
I am also committed to keeping shoppers’ parking in Oadby town centre free and weekly bin collections.
Councillor Dean Gamble
I ran a local catering business in Oadby and have lived here for the past 30 years.
I am an experienced councillor at both Borough and County levels. I know that the best way to serve residents is to listen and represent them. As a result, I hope that I have built up a reputation for determinedly following up casework on behalf of local people all year round, not just at elections.
I am a past chair of Oadby’s Town Centre Forum where local residents decide local spending priorities in the Oadby part of the Borough.
I continue to ensure our parks such as Hill Fields are well maintained and campaign to protect weekly bin collections and free shoppers’ town centre parking .
