Anne Killett – District councillor for the Barking and Somersham ward.
After growing up locally in Bramford, Anne has lived in Offton for 26 years, truly the local candidate. She is very committed to supporting the local shops and pub, as well as helping with the annual village fete and history events.
Following 18 years working for the NHS and social services as an occupational therapist, she now works as a lecturer at the University of East Anglia in Norwich. She trains future therapists and nurses, and is a researcher in improving care for older people. She has also evaluated community safety initiatives for Broadland District Council and Ipswich Borough Council.
She is passionate that the public, young and old, should have a say in shaping services and communities, and takes care that they are listened to in the research she carries out. Anne is a member of the Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust in order to support local mental health services.
My lifelong concern for the environment was first kindled by excellent teachers at Needham Market Middle School. My passion for running, horse-riding, walking and cycling make me a highly concerned road user and aware and concerned about safety and access issues in Barking and Somersham. As a commuter I am all too clear that we need to develop our villages to offer more sustainable local service choices. I am pleased to have this chance to serve as a Green Party District Councillor to put something more back into the communities that I love.
