Local campaigner for Rubery North
Faye Kent’s young age of 23 doesn’t reflect her ability and experience. Faye has been involved in Charity and Community projects since the age of 14. Faye starts her new job with a Charity in July.
Faye is determined to bring ideas for motivation and community volunteering to the young people in Rubery. Faye was involved in
the Duke of Edinburgh Award whilst at School and Sixth Form and was delighted to receive her Gold Award at St James’s Palace from Prince Edward. Faye said; “Community and Charity work has been an inspiration to me, the humbling and eye opening experience at an early age of a week working as a live in Volunteer for Vitalise helping severly disabled youngsters with games, day trips and even feeding was life changing, I would love to promote the DofE award to the young people in Rubery and get them engaged in the community”
Faye is well aware of the rough and tumble of local politics as her father is a County Councillor in nearby Wythall. Faye believes that the areas of Rubery and Wythall suffer from similar problems, incoming crime from Birmingham, with easy access to escape routes for car crime and burglary, speeding and lack of local policing and intends to implement similar innovative measures that are being delivered by her father in Wythall.
She said; “I’m delighted that after my father championed Smart Water at Worcestershire County Council for the residents of Wythall to
fight crime that the current Labour Councillor Councillor McDonald followed suit, though I haven’t seen any
of the smart water stickers around Rubery that are prevalent in Wythall. If I am fortunate to be elected by the residents then I will make sure that the program is implemented and expanded. I also want to increase our local police numbers by engaging with the Police and Crime Commissioner."
"What I have noticed talking to Rubery residents is there seems an awful lot of fake news and protests, particularly concerning the library. I am an English Literature Graduate and if anyone is going to support the local Library than you can rest assured it will be me, but we have to make sure that these facilities are sustainable into the future, many people now use ebooks, phones and kindles to read and it is essential that we protect our book heritage and community facilities by ensuring that libraries do more than just rent books."
"My family has run a chain of Barbers shops throughout the Midlands since the 1930’s. We know what makes a high street tick and it isn’t just betting shops, charities and barbers. Online shopping has changed everything we need to mix niche shops with housing and revitalise our shops and the street."
