Local business woman Nadine Peatfield has been selected by Labour Party members of Derwent Ward to represent them in the forthcoming by-election.
The parenting entrepreneur is the founder of Lots for Tots magazine and the Bump to Five Show. What started as a small magazine in Derby now provides invaluable local information to 80,000 parents across the Midlands.
Nadine explains why she wants to be a Councillor for Derwent Ward:
With my business experience in mind, I hope to effect change within the Derwent Ward both by relating to the needs of parents and children and by much better communications with residents; I plan to utilise my business links to nurture a sense of pride in the community and get residents involved in their neighbourhood.
There are issues within the Ward that need to heard by understanding ears and a business mind determined to take action. Through Lots for Tots I’ve been providing a service to parents in Derby for eight years. Now I want to apply that experience to help the residents of Derwent Ward.
Deputy Leader of Derby City Council & Labour Councillor for Derwent Ward Martin Rawson is delighted that Nadine has been selected:
It’s fantastic that the local party members in Derwent have selected local business woman Nadine as their candidate for the by-election. This election is going to be about standing up for local residents against the worst of the Tory Government cuts.
The Derwent by-election came about when local Councillor Bill Wright passed away a few weeks ago. Martin Rawson attended the funeral and said:
It’s a sad reason to hold a by-election and my condolences go out to Bill’s family, a local man who was popular amongst the Ward.
