Clean sweep for Conservatives again in Coombe Vale

Cllr. Cathy Roberts and Cllr. Roy Arora joined Cllr. Julie Pickering as elected representatives for Coombe Vale in the recent council elections.

Councillors Lynne Finnerty and Adrian Holder retired at the election, both having established records as "can do" councillors by looking after residents' interests and holding the Lib Dem-controlled council to account. Cathy and Roy aspire to serve to the same high standard. Cathy is an active resident in The Groves and Roy is based in Clarence Avenue. In welcoming Cathy and Roy, Adrian Holder said:

I believe that councillors should live within the ward they represent. Like Julie, Cathy and Roy have lived in Coombe Vale ward for many years and have a great understanding of our area and community.

Your Ward Councillors are always here to help you

Julie, Cathy and Roy hold surgeries monthly

Julie Pickering, Cathy Roberts and Roy Arora are your local Councillors for Coombe Vale. They care about our area and work constantly to improve it.

With your help, they identify issues within our Ward and bring them to the attention of the Council. Please help them by alerting them to anything that needs fixing. They also follow up individual resident’s problems raised at their monthly surgeries.

In the last year, your Conservative councillors have advised and supported hundreds of local residents and groups on wide-ranging matters, including anti-social behaviour, traffic issues, roads and pavements, housing and benefits, and nursery and school provision. They have held street meets on parking and recycling, and facilitated community group meetings between schools and residents in the Groves area.

Neighbourhood WatchThey hold regular meetings with local police, and they support the panels arranged by the Safer Neighbourhood Police team to re-enforce the message that residents are increasingly concerned about Coombe Vale burglaries.

Ward surgeries are held monthly

Ward surgeries are held on the second Saturday of the month (excluding August and December) at the Dickerage Road Recreation Ground. You can find out more about these surgeries, and other ways of obtaining assistance with local issues, here. To find out how to get in touch with your Councillors directly, please click here.

‘Positive feedback shows that we get things done’

Adrian Holder, Coombe Vale resident and former Conservative councillor, says of the monthly ward surgeries set up to support residents:

It is your Ward Councillors’ responsibility to ensure that you get the best possible service from Kingston Council. During the regular Saturday surgeries they deal with issues ranging from rogue workmen to missing trees, from fly tipping to missing road signage, and countless other problems. It is also their responsibility to ensure that the very high Council Tax you pay is spent wisely on essential services, rather than frittered away. In the last twelve months they have dealt with over 200 of your problems, which have been wide ranging. They try to respond to enquiries within three days, and constantly keep you updated until the issue is closed.

No appointment is necessary for Ward surgeries – but do bring any relevant paperwork with you. They will take up your problem or concern and, where appropriate, act on it.
