Jayne Kirkham standing in Smithick for Falmouth Cornwall Council
I moved to Arwenack eleven years ago, four weeks before I had my son and have lived here ever since. I have seen the seafront change and the university grow. It is a beautiful and interesting place to live.
When I moved to the area I used the children's services, worked part time in a business in Events Square and volunteered at the Falmouth Citizens Advice Bureau, when it was still open to give advice during office hours, 5 days per week.
When my son started school I got a job at a Falmouth School, which is where I currently work.
I have been involved in the Labour Party for 23 years. I joined as a student because I believed in equality and that still applies and is still what I understand the Labour Party to stand for.
Falmouth Town Council has become proactive and taken on a vital role in the community since it has had a labour voice. From taking on toilets to rejuvenating services and culture in Falmouth, it has started to make the town the vibrant hub it should be and I would very much like to be a part of that and serve the community that has served me so well for the past 11 years.
