Ray Bellinger – Bishopstoke & Fair Oak

Ray Bellinger

I thought I would take this opportunity to introduce myself. My Name is Ray Bellinger and I am going to stand as the Labour Party candidate for the Bishopstoke and Fair Oak area in the forthcoming elections for Hampshire County Council.

A little about myself. I have lived in Bishopstoke for the past fifteen years. Working most of my career in social care, I am well aware of the challenges that the current situation within health and social care presents at current time. Bringing up a family over the past few years, I understand the pressures that families are under, from trying to get the kids to school on time, battling through the traffic in rush hour, through to juggling a balance in spending time at work, doing chores, and enjoying your families.

Having elderly family members, I'm also aware of the concerns around accessing community facilities, both social and essential services such as medical facilities. The lessening of public transport and the reliance on friends, family and the voluntary sector to provide social access support has become ever more important.

Travelling in the area, as all of us that use the roads know, is increasingly time consuming due to the ever growing congestion. The increase in building, although in many ways progressive when planned well, can also lead to over stretched resources and infrastructure, overcrowded schools, increasing waiting time at the doctors, and queues of stopped traffic on ever busy roads.

There are many issues that our communities face that are of concern to me as I am sure are also of concern to many of you. Equally I am sure that many of you have other concerns that you would like to take up with those that will represent you in the County Council.

From environmental responsibility through to better facilities for our young people through to our most senior ones. Your views should be in the minds of those that decide our all our futures when decisions are being made. Talk to us, talk to me. Vote Labour in the upcoming County Council election.

 


 

About the Bishopstoke, Fair Oak & Horton Heath Branch

The Bishopstoke, Fair Oak & Horton Heath (BIFOHH) branch is made up of three Borough wards – Bishopstoke East, Bishopstoke West, and Fair Oak & Horton Heath. The area is also served by two local councils – Bishopstoke Parish Council, and Fair Oak Parish Council.

Our branch meets on the second Thursday of each month at Fair Oak Village Hall, except for June, August and December when we hold social events.  Our meetings are informal and friendly and give us the opportunity to discuss various topical issues as well as Labour Party policy so that we can put forward comments to the National Party.

Our members are very involved in the local community with organisations including Age Concern Bishopstoke, Fair Oak Village Hall, Bishopstoke Community Association, and Bishopstoke Memorial Hall. Labour Parish Councillors are also involved with Bishopstoke Carnival.

We have a long history of fighting for residents and speaking up for them on many issues, particularly controversial major planning applications that threaten to change the face of our villages and cause significant traffic congestion.  If there’s anything you feel we can help with, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
