“I have enjoyed getting to know much more of the ward well, and meeting and helping so many residents. I am particularly pleased to have enabled and supported the start up of several new groups./

“Sadly, may personal circumstances have led me to make the difficult decision not to stand for re-election in May. Although I will miss working for residents, please be assured I will continue to support the work of the Green team in Farnley and Wortley.”

Candidate: Mark Rollinson.
