Green Clrs Robert Barraclough, Cass Whittingham and Derek Hardcastle

Grange Moor Parish Councillor Cass Whittingham has been selected by the Green Party as their Candidate for the 2014 Kirklees Council Elections. Cass will be contesting the third seat in the Kirkburton Ward and if she succeeds she will join Derek Hardcastle and Robert Barraclough as one of our local representatives on Kirklees Council. Cass has been a Parish Councillor for the Grange Moor/Little Lepton area since 2009. She topped the poll in her Parish Council Ward in 2011 and is an active School Governor and a founding member of the new Grange Moor Community Association. Cass lives in Grange Moor with her husband David and she has 2 daughters attending local schools.

“I live locally and have a very real stake in its future. I have been involved in various projects. These have been little improvements such as extending the barrier at the end of the snicket near Grange Moor primary school to bigger projects such as trying to get traffic calming within the village. I have been involved in planning community events within Grange Moor such as the Jubilee Picnic and Christmas Fair and most recently helping to establish the Grange Moor Community Association. Being a Parish Councillor has helped give me the confidence to do these things and I am ready to work with Robert and Derek at the Kirklees level. If there are any local issues I can help you with please give me a call or drop me an email.”

Councillor Robert Barraclough said, "I've worked with Cass on the Parish Council and I know that she is be a hard working community campaigner and is a great asset to our team"

Councillor Derek Hardcastle added, "Cass is not afraid to speak her mind at council meetings and as someone who lives locally with children at local schools she has a real stake in our community and a genuine concern for our area which goes beyond party politics"
