Saffron Walden Town and District Councillor, and former Mayor, Arthur Coote (R4U), said “Lucy Brett is a district nurse who has a career caring for people. She’s lived in Saffron Walden for over 30 years and so understands what residents need, and cares passionately about the town and its future. My wife Elaine and I have known her since her daughter was at the Bell Nursery. Lucy would make an outstanding town councillor – she has the right motivation, ethics, and team-working sprit. We believe that national political parties, with their own agendas, have no place in local politics – so on 12th June, please support resident Lucy Brett – she will put residents first.”

Residents for Uttlesford candidate Lucy Brett added “R4U have done an outstanding job since being elected to lead SWTC nearly a decade ago. I watched them turn around what was a failing council, into one that is now multi-awarding winning, financially stable, and continually investing in our community. I’m passionate about protecting our town’s character, heritage and beauty. I want to join your residents’ team. If you elect me, I will work hard for all residents, support independent businesses and local events, and seek to enhance our public amenities and spaces.”

The vacancy at Saffron Walden Town Council arose after Cllr Kirstie Frost stood down. Ward Councillor Heather Asker (R4U) said “We’d like to thank Kirstie for her 5 years of service for residents, her community passion and hard work. We’ll miss her, particularly on the playground refurbishment programmes – but we’re delighted that Lucy wants to stand up for residents in her place.”
