District & County Councillors as at 26th September 2016

District & County Councillor James Airey

Low Furness – Conservative



District Councillor Caroline Airey
Telephone: 01229 868088

Mid Furness – Conservative

District Councillor Andrew Butcher
Telephone: 07884 411662

Mid Furness – Conservative

I was born and brought up in Singleton near Blackpool we moved to Pennington when I was 13 years old, I have lived in Pennington and Ulverston ever since. I worked in farming with my late Father, also in the Pharmaceuticals industry, I now breed Pedigree Texel sheep.
I was elected as district councillor for Mid-Furness in 2015, I take my role as councillor for the district very seriously, I feel that as councillors we should not bring politics into local meetings and help residents irrelevant of their beliefs or politics.

County Councillor Janet Willis
Telephone: 01229 861250

Low Furness – Liberal Democrat

After holidaying in the area for many years, I moved from the North East (Tynemouth) 7 years ago to Greenodd. I left my job as a Manager, at Northern Rock’s Head Offiice in Gosforth to run Greenodd Village Store & Post Office with my husband, Lloyd. The Post Office counter has since been closed but we still provide an outreach service, 11 hours per week, on behalf of Grange over Sands Post Office.
It was after seeing the campaign to save the post office, I was asked to consider becoming a County Councillor. I have no political ambitions but I saw this as an opportunity to get more involved in and helping my local community. I still work in our shop and also work for Furness Enterprise, providing training for people who wish to start their own businesses.
Coming from an urban area I very much appreciate our rural communities and want to work to sustain and if possible, improve our way of life in the South Lakes.
