The Welwyn Hatfield Liberal Democrats have revealed its new candidate for a Welwyn ward.

The Liberal Democrats have chosen Christina Raven as their candidate for the Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council by-election in Welwyn West ward set for November 29.

An osteopath who practises in Welwyn, Hitchin and SE London, Christina was grew up in Digswell and returned in 2007 to live in Old Welwyn.

Christina explained why she is standing: “My earliest memories are rooted in this community, and I’ve made Welwyn my home for more than a decade.

“I love this community, and want to contribute to both preserving what is best about it, and also making it better.

“There are so many things about this area that are special, but we are also facing a number of challenges that could do irreparable harm.

“Too often in the past decisions have been made at the borough council level that ignored the views of our residents and of our Parish Council.

She added: “Decisions should be made at the most local level possible, not from the top down.”

“I believe Welwyn, along with Wilshere Park, Oaklands West and the Ayots, needs someone who will fight for the needs of our community, rather than toeing the party line.

“I hope to have the opportunity to be a champion for our area as the next councillor for Welwyn West.”
