District Councillor Caroline Airey

Mid Furness – Conservative


District Councillor Andrew Butcher
Telephone: 07884 411662

Mid Furness – Conservative

I was born and brought up in Singleton near Blackpool we moved to Pennington when I was 13 years old, I have lived in Pennington and Ulverston ever since. I worked in farming with my late Father, also in the Pharmaceuticals industry, I now breed Pedigree Texel sheep.
I was elected as district councillor for Mid-Furness in 2015, I take my role as councillor for the district very seriously, I feel that as councillors we should not bring politics into local meetings and help residents irrelevant of their beliefs or politics.

County Councillor Janet Willis
Telephone: 01229 861250

Low Furness – Liberal Democrat

I run Greenodd Village Store & Post Office with my husband, Lloyd. The Post Office counter has since been closed but we still provide an outreach service.
Coming from an urban area I very much appreciate our rural communities and want to work to sustain and if possible, improve our way of life in the South Lakes.
