A narrow Shrewsbury street, described as one of the town’s most dangerous roads for pedestrians and vehicles, has secured approval to switch permanently to one-way thanks to the campaigning work of residents and the area’s Green Party councillor Julian Dean.
These are our candidates for the elections on 6th May 2021.
Please note that the list is not complete yet and will be updated as further information becomes available.
I've lived in Shrewsbury for most of my life so I'm well acquainted with the area and its people. I now work locally as a web developer.
I’m Chris Lemon and I am delighted to have been chosen as the Green Party’s candidate for Shrewsbury Town Council in the Radbrook ward at the May local elections. I moved to Shrewsbury to train as a Registered General Nurse and after qualifying in 1996 I worked for five years mostly on the Oncology Ward at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital. I first lived in the Nurses Home on the old South Hospital site, which is now occupied by housing within the ward, and later lived on Ravenscourt Walk, also within Radbrook ward.
I have been part of the small team working hard in Radbrook for three years. I truly appreciate the sense of community and campaigning spirit of people in Radbrook Green, Rad Valley, Darwin’s Walk and Bowbrook Meadows, finding inspiring individuals and groups throughout the ward concerned with many issues that we have been privileged to support.
I was present on election night when Julian Dean became the first Green Party councillor in Shrewsbury. The promise of that evening has been fulfilled many times over with his participation at both councils over the last four years. It would be a huge step forward if he had fellow Greens working alongside him after the election, and I look forward very much to working with him on Shrewsbury Town Council if I am elected in May.
I grew up in Shropshire and have lived here with my family for the past 20 years. I work for a county based environmental charity. I am married and we have a son who is 11.
Emma Bullard has lived locally for 20 years and her two children went to Meole primary and secondary schools. She worked for Shropshire Council as manager of the Shrewsbury Cycling Town project and still works to get more people cycling, as a cycle instructor and a campaigner with Sustainable Transport Shropshire.
She was employed by Shrewsbury Food Hub until recently and worked with many community groups including the Meet Place on Meole Estate. The Food Hub has won several Mayor's Awards in the Community and Environment categories in recognition of its work.
"This is a time when crucial decisions have to be made locally, nationally and globally. If elected I look forward to working with Green councillor Julian Dean on Shropshire and Shrewsbury Town councils. We will work with people from other parties and groups beyond the councils to develop a Green New Deal, acting on the declaration of climate change emergency by both councils. This will target local issues such as food and fuel poverty, poor air quality and over-development; as well as our urgent climate crisis."
Please contact me if you live in Meole and have any questions.
