Stewart Kemp is the Green Party candidate for Stannington Ward in the local elections on May 3rd.
“I am relatively new to the area having recently moved from Ecclesall where I stood as a Green Party candidate in the 2016 local elections. I was attracted to Loxley by its beautiful semi-rural character – something I wish to protect.
“I’m now retired but devote much of my time to volunteering in the community. I help young people get their lives back on track through the Sheffield Youth Justice Service, help cared for children through the City Council Independent Visitor scheme and as a school reading mentor, help younger children improve their literacy skills. As a member of the Ecclesall Community Forum I helped to establish a lively social group for elderly residents to tackle local social isolation. I’m also a keen cyclist, fell runner and grandparent!
“I’m committed to a greener, fairer and more compassionate society. I believe that in a country as wealthy as ours we should not tolerate child poverty and crumbling health and adult social care services. I believe many people in Stannington Ward will support a candidate and party willing to fight for social justice and environmental improvement in Sheffield.”
