Peter Bedford: Listening To Markfield Residents

Peter Bedford, Conservative candidate for Markfield, Desford & Thornton County Council Division, and members of his campaign team have been calling on residents in Markfield to hear their views and concerns on a range of issues, both local and national.

Peter said, “As ever, it was good to hear Markfield residents’ opinions on important issues and also the improvements they would like to see in the local area.

“If elected to the County Council in May, my number one priority will be delivering for local people and that is why I think it is so important to get out into our communities and talk with residents about the issues that matter to them.”
