Cllr Alan Pearson
District Council candidate for Hednesford North
“If I’m re-elected to represent Hednesford North I will work to ensure that the play areas in Tackeroo and Cotswold Road are upgraded, and do my best to help Hednesford Scouts relocate to another venue. I am deeply concerned about Tory County Council proposals to charge for parking on our Cannock Chase, and will work with my colleagues to find a viable alternative.”
Alan was born in Bridgtown and he and his wife Shirley have been Hednesford residents for over 50 years. They have two grown up children and grandchildren who all live locally. Alan is an ex-miner and is proud of his work as an underground electrician at Littleton Colliery. Growing up in a mining family with a disabled brother, Alan understands local people and in the nine years since he was elected to the District Council, has worked hard to represent them.
As a founder member of Friends of Hednesford Park he has influenced the redevelopment and improvements and as the first Chairman of the Save the Stadium group, helped ensure that the stadium site was saved from development and became the valuable leisure area it is today.
The military are close to Alan’s heart. He is a member of the Staffords Association and Vice-Chair of Hednesford branch of the RAF Association. Alan’s proudest achievement came whilst he was Chair of Hednesford Town Council when he arranged for Hednesford Branch of the Staffords Association to receive the Freedom of the Town. Their march through the town, applauded by local residents, was a special day.
If Alan is re-elected on 6th May will continue to fight for the best for local residents.
