Jane’s Three to Fix
Jane would continue to make sure there are improvements to the roads in our area - prioritising the Larkhill traffic lights, campaigning for a right hand turning lane there and making sure road safety is improved at Oaklands School and Preston Grove Medical Centre.
2. Early Help
Jane feels passionately that too many of our children are failing to get the early help they need to thrive. Many more services need to be available to everyone. Young families should feel supported and confident to make sure their children get the best start in life.
3. Local NHS
As a Governor at Yeovil District Hospital and local Councillor Jane successfully helped to retain Stroke Services in Yeovil and during the current review of Maternity and Paediatric services, and the possibility of sharing with Dorchester, she wants Yeovil to maintains its share of these local services.
