ANNIE Greer, Conservative, is one of three people standing for the Nether Ward on May 6.

After making her home in Knutsford, having spent years working at one of the area’s biggest attractions, Annie feels passionate about standing up for her town.

“I was excited to make my home in Knutsford after working in fundraising for the National Trust at Dunham Massey Hall,” she said.

“I fell in love with the town’s unique character, setting and rich heritage and have a deep sense of indebtedness for the delight living here gives me.”

Annie says one of her priorities will be meeting the special challenges of coming out of lockdown.

“I want to play my part in supporting the recovery and success of the town’s shops, restaurants, pub, bars and other businesses – and the employment opportunities these create,” she said.

“I am keen to make a positive contribution to the widest range of issues. I want to help ensure those most in need are cared for.”

She also wants to campaign for the protection and enhancement of the local environment.

“I am passionate about helping and supporting others, she said. “During lockdown, I have been actively involved with several community projects – caring for the most vulnerable and worst affected.

“On the most local level, this includes the upkeep of the Stanley Road gardens transformation initiative.”

Annie says she want to protect and maintain the town’s vitality by attracting businesses to fill vacant premises welcoming visitors.

She added: “I want to help make a difference. My concerns are exactly the same as the great majority of people who live in Knutsford.”
