Dear Sir,
We were delighted to read in last week’s Newton News that fellow Community Spirit volunteers have decided to stand in the upcoming By Elections for Horndale & Byerley Park.
John Woodward has worked his whole life as a Joiner, a skill that has been invaluable to Community Spirit as he has been involved yearly in the building of Santa’s sleigh, the fencing in the towns Grotto and more recently working on the Community Coach donated by J&C Coaches.
Lindsey Aston is a founder member of Community Spirit and over the years has worked hard to help raise thousands of pounds for charity, distributing hampers and food to those in need and providing community events such as discos and craft fairs.
Both want to continue working hard for our community by becoming town councillors.
They believe that everyone should be working together to make Aycliffe a great place for us all to live. We feel they would make a substantial contribution to Great Aycliffe Town Council and we would like to wish them both the very best of luck.
Community Spirit, Newton Aycliffe
