Experience

I am very active in the local community and, over the years I have developed a close, strong and trusted relationship with local people whether they are my neighbours or my customers. As a result, people find me approachable and willing to share their concerns and problems. Having settled in Grangetown from Pakistan, I have been able to develop a special relationship with the local ethnic minority community as well as the wider community across the ward.
