OCKENDON councillor Lynn Carr is coming up to her first year as a councillor. When she was asked to stand, Lyn felt the task was quite daunting.
A year on, Lynn is really enjoying the job.
Lynn said: “Before I reflect on what I feel I have achieved, I want to thank all those who have helped me. The Housing Estates Office have been fantastic.
When you receive issues to do with housing, it is complicated but time after time they have helped me.
“I would also like to thank my fellow Conservative councillors in Ockendon, Barry Johnson and Amanda Arnold. They really welcomed me into the team. There is so much to learn both in the chamber and out in the ward.
“I think we have achieved a great deal especially in relation to anti-social behaviour and housing issues.
“I’m a humble footsoldier, learning my trade on the backbenches but it has been very fulfilling.
