Meet your 2023 candidates for Sawley
2 April 2023
Who are Labour’s team for Sawley ward? Meet them here.
I have lived in the area for many years and have spent much of that time as a local councillor. For the past four years, I have been vice chair of Sawley Parish Council, solving problems by working hard for people in Sawley by organising local litter picks, improving our parks and supporting the community speed watch. As your local councillor for Sawley, I want to represent you and your views on the local council, putting Sawley residents first. As a veteran, I’m really passionate about supporting our armed forces and will work hard to establish veterans’ hubs in Erewash.
I’ve lived in Long Eaton and Sawley all of my life and want nothing more than to see it thrive like it once did. After leaving school I went and got an apprenticeship in electrical maintenance at Ratcliffe Power Station where I still work. The Scouts is something I’m hugely passionate about and am heavily evolved with. It gives young people the chance to gain amazing skills and experience that they wouldn’t otherwise do. When I do get a spare 5 minutes, I’m often down at one of the local pubs enjoying a pint of beer.
I’m Robert George Peat, a railwayman working out of Birmingham New Street. I’m standing In Sawley as one of the Labour Party candidates In the upcoming local council elections. I was born In Nottingham and have lived my whole life In Long Eaton. I have lived my most impressionable years through austerity, and I have also witnessed the decline of local business and industry, as well as the deterioration of living standards. I have an idea of what Erewash should look like in the future and feel inspired to take steps to make that idea a reality. I’m very passionate about public service, and I would strive to make a positive difference for everyone in Sawley. I want to collaborate with residents and local businesses to foster economic growth, enhance public services, and make our streets safer.
