    I am a Councillor on top of my professional job as a Nuclear Consultant. I am also involved in lots of other community work and projects.

    Hi cd,

    I was and still am a Health Analyst, unfortunately I cannot afford to be a full time councillor.

    Hi, I was and still am a Painter and Decorator for the NHS..I work at Wigan Infirmary..this is my real job i went to college and gained lots of qualifications to become a proffesional Decorator. I also work very hard at being a Councillor,
    being Local Coucillor pays me an extra income of £12,000 a year which sounds a lot but it’s not enough to feed my family, so i have to carrie on doing what i know best… I was also in the Army many years ago…Thanks for your question.
