Candidate for The Buckenhams & Banham: Jan PRIOR

I live with my husband in New Buckenham. We moved from Kent in 2016 to enjoy the culture, countryside and community of Norfolk and very soon felt completely at home here.

I joined the Green Party in 2011 to support a party which echoed my own values and which wants to see a different type of politics, and stood as a Green Party candidate in local elections in Kent in 2015.

My work has been in the NHS as a Clinical Psychologist and latterly as Chief Executive of a charity providing for those with complex mental and physical health challenges. I have seen the impact of austerity at close quarters and am deeply troubled by the continuing weakening of our public services. I am passionate about environmental issues and addressing inequalities and believe we are stronger when working together for the common good.

If elected I would work to strengthen local public services, develop options for public transport as a realistic means of transport for rural communities and bring a different perspective to discussions at Breckland.

I am involved in village life in various ways, sing in a local choir and enjoy working in our garden and on an allotment shared with neighbours. We are regular visitors to neighbouring towns and to Norwich for cultural events.

I am standing in The Buckenhams and Banham to provide a alternative choice for voters beyond the two main parties. A vote for the Green Party is a positive vote for change.
