Amos Duveen & Jenny Hannaby
Amos lives in the centre of Wantage with his partner who is a Social worker and their young 3 children. A Mechanical Engineer Graduate, Amos is an experienced qualified teacher and now works for Oxford University Press.
He is passionate about all children getting the best possible education and is concerned that with the massive growth Wantage faces over the next few years the pressure on its already overworked schools and teachers may damage their chances. If elected he will work to ensure that schooling provision is given a top priority.
He is also very concerned about public transport and the state of our roads, especially as he commutes to Oxford by bus every day.
The new housing in Wantage will deliver tens of millions of pounds of developer funding and this offers a real opportunity to ensure quality new infrastructure for residents new and old. It is essential that these monies are spent wisely.
He is experienced and passionate about Wantage and is prepared to ensure it makes the best of the opportunities and challenges we face in the years to come.
Jenny Hannaby has been a District Councillor for 16 years. She has always fought for quality services for the local community in that time.
She is concerned about the current state of the Conservative-run district, particularly the cancellation of the new Leisure Centre, the massive losses racked up by the Beacon or the current Council Budget which their own officers describe as unsustainable. She believes it is time for change.
Jenny is the Liberal Democrat spokesperson for Adult Social Services and Public Health in the Vale of White Horse. A Governor of Stockham School, Jenny is also a Trustee of Wantage Hospital League of Friends, Wantage Nursing Home and the Independent Advice Service, President of the local Royal British Legion and serves on a wide range of other organisations from the Neighbourhood Action Group to the Literary Festival and much more besides.
