Eileen Jane Reynolds for Buxton West
Jane Reynolds moved to Buxton in 2014 after spending 20 years working as a technical writer Italy and Germany. She is involved in community organisations in Buxton and is a director of the Buxton Neighbourhood Forum, a community interest company that was recently approved by High Peak Borough Council to create a neighbourhood development plan for Buxton.
I moved to Buxton seven years and I’ve found it to be a town with real community spirit. That spirit showed in the amazing response to the Covid-19 crisis and groups like Buxton Street by Street, which I am proud to be a part of, helping neighbours in a difficult time.
I want a sustainable future for Buxton and so have got involved in Transition Buxton and the Serpentine Community Garden; community groups that are taking practical steps to bring that future into being. Climate change and the decline of nature are challenges that demand real change. I see this as an opportunity to create a fairer society in which we can all thrive.
Since 2019, High Peak has had two Green Party councillors, who have pushed the Council to take environmental issues seriously. Now it’s time for a Green voice on Derbyshire County Council.
