A Welcome from Sophie

Sophie Bell

Watton-at-Stone is a beautiful village, with a strong and thriving community. However, along with many parts of rural Hertfordshire, it has suffered from neglect and poor planning over recent years. We need a strong voice to represent everybody who lives here, and I believe I can be that voice.

I have lived in Watton-at-Stone for twenty-two years, my entire life, and I really appreciate the tranquillity and sense of community in the village. I attended the village school and have fond memories of taking part in a wide variety of other activities in the village, such as the village pantomime, which is such a highlight of the village calendar.

I work as a researcher in planning, so I have a good understanding of the planning process. I am also well aware of environmental issues associated with development, which is important in a village like Watton-at-Stone, where we are blessed with such a wide variety of fauna and flora.

I have been a supporter of the Liberal Democrats for around ten years now, but I joined in 2015 during my first year at university, having had the opportunity to see just how much work the Liberal Democrats do for the community. I want Watton-at-Stone to benefit, as other places have done, from more effective and accessible elected representatives.

The most important aspect, for me, is to ensure that you feel comfortable to approach me with any problems or concerns you may have, or any suggestions for improvements which could be made within the village. I want my efforts to be dominated by the issues that matter to people from all walks of life, from across the village, so that I can best represent you. As a consequence, feel free to email me at any time on the above email address, and I shall get back to you as soon as possible. I am also available by telephone during the evenings. Again, my number is available above.

Most of all, I want to make our community a better place, making sure the most vulnerable are supported, and working hard for the future of our village.

I hope I will be able to rely on your support.
