Councillor Leah Perry
I moved to East Hunsbury from Higham Ferrers in 2016 with my husband and two teenage children. The sense of community on our street made us all feel very welcome and that sense of community has continued and grown as I've joined in with various events in East Hunsbury. One thing that I did notice was how active the Parish Council was and that hasn't faltered.
I'm a very active person and do a lot of cycling and running so I really do appreciate the green spaces within East Hunsbury for my early morning runs. I'm keen to maintain the quantity and quality of these open spaces so residents of all ages can benefit and enjoy the time spent outdoors. My husband and I still partake in our 'Lockdown' walks in our area! I also take a very positive attitude to helping to tackle climate change and try to do my bit whenever I can. I recently bought a fold up bike so I can use the car less, and it also gives me another excuse to cycle!
I'm a keen volunteer and have various volunteer hats that keep me very busy and vary from working with children to helping tackle climate change.
Cllr Perry was co-opted to the Parish Council in October 2022. She is a member of the Parks & Open Spaces Committee.
