George Hines candidate for Judd ward

George Hines Councillor for Judd ward

I grew up in Judd ward and attended a local school in the ward. I love the strong sense of community in the Barden area where my parents live, and also in the Meadow Lawn area where I now live with my partner.
During the COVID pandemic it was wonderful how this community pulled together. The councillors organised a support group whereby each street had a volunteer responsible for contacting those unable to get out and offering help with shopping collecting prescriptions etc. It worked well. Food drives for the foodbank are organised here. We have community events such as litter picks and the decorated street trees in Meadow Lawn as part of the Walk Tonbridge festival.
I thoroughly enjoy my work as part of the pastoral team at the local secondary school which I once attended as a pupil. I feel I can contribute to our community. I want to further this by continuing to create a community in Judd and ensuring that residents in our area have truly local representation on TMBC council.
