About Cllr Helen Corner
Why did I become a parish councillor?
Because I want to make a difference in the local community.
Interesting facts about me…
My favourite hobby is horse riding, I have a horse of my own. I enjoy competing and pleasure rides.
I was awarded the Evening Chronicles Women of the year in their glass slipper inspirational awards due to my fund raising for St Cuthberts Hospice. The money raised was used to purchase a brand new patient mini bus and put towards a coffee shop refurbishment at the hospice.
Best achievements during my 3 years on the parish council so far?
Helping to plan and organise the Spooktacular Halloween events and cinema events.
Leading our Easter event for the parish. Seeing the children’s faces when I was dressed as the Easter bunny was priceless.
I was part in planning, organising and the delivering of home made Christmas cards from the children of Waldridge to the West lane nursing home and to see how happy the residents were really warmed my heart.
I enjoy sitting on the new bench at the millennium green and watching others do the same. As well as watching the younger ones enjoy our tots play park. Both were installed during my time on the council.
In the future…
I am looking forward to being part of the events team and helping to organise and plan further events for our residents to enjoy.
