“My name’s Craig Beardmore and since 2015 I’ve been the local councillor for Meir Hay and half of Park Hall.
“I’ve lived in the area for over 12 years, and both my kids attend local schools. Myself and my wife think Meir Hay is a great place to live and I’m proud to have helped start lots of improvements to the green space locally.
“My cleaning business gets me all around the area, so I’m always busy reporting things I see and speaking to residents about their concerns. I love meeting people and many residents know me for my white van!
“I started my business from scratch and so I know the value of hard work, but also how residents want to ensure they get value for money from the council.”
