I am a local businesswoman and live with my significant other Lee here in Raunds, we have two grown up children and a wonderful granddaughter. I like to keep myself busy and am involved in many local projects and organisations. I have been a Town Councillor in Raunds since 2012 and District Councillor for Stanwick Ward at East Northants Council since 2015 where I am currently the Chairman of that Council. I support and promote a wide range of activities for all members of our community and have been instrumental in creating an Events working party for Raunds that has now been formally constituted as a Council Committee and I am delighted to continue as Chairman of that committee. I served as Mayor from 2015-2017 and set up The Mayors Show and Town Picnic to try and improve community spirit and cohesion along with the children's Halloween party and Christmas Lights event improvements. I am truly delighted with their success and will continue to improve and promote these events. I have been actively involved in many projects and committees over the years.

I am currently on the following committees:

Events (chairman)

Finance & Policy

Personnel

Planning (Vice Chairman)

I am also the council's representative on JAG (Joint Action Group), together we look at local issues such as anti-social behaviour, speeding and policing to ensure our town continues to be a safe place to live. I have volunteered in the community speed watch programme within the town.

I was the council's representative in the campaign for The Rushden Lakes Project and spoke passionately in support of it, so I am very pleased to see that this project continues to be a success.

If you need my assistance in any way then please contact the office. I will always do what I can to assist.

Thanking you for your continued support.

Cllr Helen Howell
