District Councillor Yvonne Parker Smith

I have lived in Lindford for 20 years and have been District Councillor representing Lindford for 12 years

I have lived in Lindford for 22 years and have been District Councillor representing Lindford for 15 years.

I ran Lindford Ladies for many years and am President of the League of Friends, Chase Hospital, Bordon.

A new PPG (Patients Participation Group) has been formed between Badgerswood Surgery and Forest Surgery (Headley and Bordon). This Group is to disseminate information about the practices of the two surgeries and to improve communication. I am on the committee, and leading on communications.

I currently chair the North East Forum, which is the opportunity for members of the public to ask questions and give their views.

In the past, I have had the honour of being Chairman of East Hants District Council, and serving on the cabinet, my area of special interest being Social Inclusion/Rural Deprivation for which the Council won an award.

I sit on a Scrutiny Committee which meets regularly.

I will be attending a seminar for the new Localism Agenda which will give local residents more say in their local areas.

I am always available to assist any resident of Lindford who has a problem. If I cannot resolve this myself, I always know whom to contact in our Local Authority.

Please do not hesitate to contact me on 01420 489974.


Update 18.08.18

August is a quiet time of the year with so many of us on holiday. Barry and I spent a few days in Liverpool seeing the Terracotta warriors and having a trip on the Manchester Ship Canal.  Very interesting but tiring!


A public meeting was held recently at the Future Skills Centre, Bordon, attended by Damian Hinds MP and Cllr Ferris Cowper: they both answered many questions of concern from the large audience.


The Patient Participation Group, of which I am the secretary, is having a Quiz Night to raise funds for the two surgeries, Badgerswood and Forest.


I hope to be chairing a Forum for Older People in Liphook in October, with speakers and stalls representing various relevant organisations.


Liz Panton from EHDC, whom I am sure many of you will know, is retiring shortly.  Her local knowledge of communities is amazing - I have had her support as a District Councillor for nearly 20 years now.


Finally, I am still under the hospital for my eye - over two years now - but they are "keeping an eye on me" - sorry about the pun.
