Jemma is your Liberal Democrat candidate for Hooley, Merstham and Netherne. Living locally in Merstham, Jemma chose to set up home in a community that benefits from green spaces and community facilities, viewing this as the perfect place to raise a family. Jemma is passionate about ensuring children and young people have the best start in life. As a speech and language therapist in the NHS and schools, she sees the pressure local services are facing and the fight families sometimes entail to get the support they need. As a Reigate and Banstead Borough Councillor, Jemma will fight to protect valuable services for families in our community, such as Sure Start Centres and Libraries, whilst promoting community hubs, such as the innovative Merstham Mix Café. She will push for families and carers to get the social, emotional and financial support they need for themselves and for those they care for. We are fortunate to live in a leafy, greenbelt area and Jemma will oppose threats to our open spaces. This includes opposing fracking in the nearby Surrey Hills. Jemma will also push to ensure our ward's roads are fit for purpose, particularly around Hooley, where a balance needs to be struck between the wishes of commuters, residents and local businesses; alongside promoting sustainable travel, such as ensuring cycle lanes are available along our arterial routes to make journeys safer.
