"We have a climate and social crisis. I have supported local foodbanks, campainged against Universal Credit, and have personally suffered the loss of pension rights. I have organised climate change meetings working with groups and individuals to activate local solutions to global problems. I have worked with farmers and rural communities to indentify their concerns. We need change! On the doorstep and at meetings throughout the region I have been struck by how energised communities are at the possibility of change."
