Adrain & Ron - canvassingYour Adeyfield West Candidates for the 2nd May 2019 local elections


What made you want to stand for council?

Adrian: The chance to serve my community and show how Dacorum can and must be run openly - and with all viewpoints considered. When I started in 2016 the council was Tory-dominated with a majority of 41 in a chamber of 51. After 2 and a half years hard work it is down to 37 and come 2nd May I'm hoping it will be down more thanks to Liberal Democrat gains.

Ron: I have always got satisfaction from helping people and fighting against injustice. Since being on the council, that satisfaction has increased and my experiences have made me determined to find a more open and democratic way of organising local services.

A little bit about each candidate

Adrian England: Adrian has lived in Hemel since 1996, Adrian has been active in the community, helped set up and run parent and toddler group for local dads. Adrian has had experience working for a national housing association. He can often be seen running the odd mile in Adeyfield's green spaces such as Turners Hill and Keens Fields or, to balance the running, using the shops at Queens Square - especially Pruden's bakery and Barkers' chip shop!

Ron Tindall: Ron started his working life as a Local Government Officer, working his way up to become a middle manager before switching careers and joining the Civil Service. While in the Civil Service, he became interested in union afffairs and became a Branch Official of the TGWU before, in 1989 leaving upon appointment as a Regional Industrial Organiser. On retirement, he had a number of part-time interests until in 2009 he was elected as the County Councillor for Hemel Hempstead St. Pauls, and later as a local councillor for Adeyfield West Ward.
