My name is Carol and I live with my husband on Denefield in Skellingthorpe. We live previously in Carlton-on-Trent for 28 years and moved to Skellingthorpe after retiring from our manufacturing business in 2014. I wanted to become a Parish Councillor because I feel strongly about tis lovely village. There are a lot of things right with the village but I feel that there could be a lot of improvements both in the facilities to the village that will benefit all ages and also the structure of the wonderful spaces we have, and their upkeep. I feel that is no use moaning abut certain aspects but to have a voice to perhaps change things.
