At the moment Wyre Forest Council Elections are held on the first Thursday in May 3 years out of 4 with County Council Elections being held in the 4th year.
The Government is massively cutting the Grant it gives to Local Councils. This means that many services which you, the public really value, are in danger of being cut over the next few years.
Fran and the local Liberal Team have always supported "Election by Thirds"as being a way to keep the public able to to almost continuously "keep Cllrs on their toes!" however, less than 40% of the public bother to Vote in Local Elections AND if we move to All Out Elections once every 4 years and STOP the Election in the other years it would SAVE a massive £150,000 in each four year Council Cycle; and this saving would be continuous.

Following the controversy about the UKIP Advertising Hoarding at The Harriers Aggborough Football Ground, Fran decided that the best way to counteract purely Political Advertising was to pay for an Information Board giving her contact details. This sign is now up at the ground and will be there for all of this season and next season.
The seventh annual Wyre Forest 'No Barriers' awards ceremony took place on Friday 24 October.
Organised by Wyre Forest District Council, the event was hosted Wyre Forest Community Housing Group. It celebrated the significant contribution made by individuals, businesses and organisations to improving access, service or employment possibilities for local people with disabilities.
The Musician and Artists of Kidderminster are holding a benefit concert for the family of Sandra Nowocinska, who tragically died following the fire in Horsefair at the end of 2014.
During the last municipal year when Fran was Chair of Wyre Forest District Council, Kidderminster Harriers presented a signed away shirt from their historic FA Cup 4th round tie against Sunderland to use to raise Funds for her Charities.
Wyre Forest Community Housing bought the shirt at Fran's Charity Dinner and it became the main prize in a Word Search Competition for Tenants' Children.
The shirt was won by 9yr old Tyler Hemming a pupil at Comberton Primary School. Tyler is shown above receiving his shirt from Fran.
