"I have represented the Waldingfield Ward at Babergh District Council since 2015. I was honoured to become the first Cabinet Member for Communities, a position I have held for two years. I also hold the position of Armed Forces Champion. I represent the District Council on a variety of committees including Health Scrutiny and Health and Well-being keeping an eye on our community health services. I have been instrumental in launching dementia friendly centres and clubs within both Hadleigh and Lavenham." - Margaret Maybury
