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.
