In our 5 years at Wixams, we’ve got to know many of the community (mainly through school, football, and taking part in a number of activities). I’d like to contribute to its representation, protecting its interests and provide support in its future development.
Councillor Janine Alli-Balogun
I have lived in Wixams for nearly a year after moving from a small village in Hampshire. My husband and I have enjoyed living in the area so far and love the community feel and spirit; this was one of the deciding factors that we considered before moving to the village. I have two children: a boy and a girl. My son particularly loves visiting the local parks, so if you ever see us around then please do feel free to say hello.
