Lib­eral Democrats

Rutherglen Reformer - - Ward 14: Cambuslang East -

I at­tended the then Ruther­glen Academy and Cathkin High School. I grad­u­ated from Strath­clyde Univer­sity with a joint hon­ours de­gree in Eco­nomic His­tory and Ge­og­ra­phy and qual­i­fied as a teacher at Hamil­ton Col­lege of Ed­u­ca­tion.

I have taught at var­i­ous schools, in­clud­ing a school in Malawi and later at Stonelaw High School (teach­ing ge­og­ra­phy, and travel and tourism) un­til 2014, and was chair of Halfmerke Pri­mary School Board in East Kilbride.

I am now a vol­un­teer guide at the David Liv­ing­stone Cen­tre and the Na­tional Mu­seum of Coun­try Life.

Cam­bus­lang East is the largest ward in South La­nark­shire by pop­u­la­tion and is con­tin­u­ing to grow with the new houses at Gil­bert-field but Lib­eral Democrats have long ar­gued that fa­cil­i­ties lag badly be­hind.

It is time for a more in­te­grated ap­proach to man­ag­ing growth – for nurs­ery and school pro­vi­sion and com­mu­nity fa­cil­i­ties.
