We are lucky to live in a beautiful, historical Parish, which is currently face huge challenges balancing our village heritage and community spirit with the demands of development.
There is a wealth of experience and commitment in the Parish Council, and I'm looking forward to working with the councillors and the community for the benefit of Malpas.
