For many of us from Church Hill, we know this man very well!! He played a big part in our lives for many years, in the days where the GP was your family doctor. I owe him thanks for many things, most recently his kind letter of support below.
"I have known Rebecca since she was a child in Church Hill Redditch. She along with her parents, siblings, grandmother, aunt, uncle and cousins were all my patients whilst I was the family GP in Church Hill from 1979 till 2002. Also more recently I have known her in her role as a councillor in Redditch.
I remember Rebecca as a cheerful, good natured, intelligent, polite child and young person. She was from a good immediate, and extended, family who I got on well with and have fond memories of.
In her role as a councillor she is articulate, competent and committed to her service of the community. I have noted her concern and interest for the people of Redditch, particularly for the more vulnerable. Her concern for the more vulnerable extends beyond Redditch including to those in our twin town in Tanzania.
As a local person with very strong roots in Redditch she has a good understanding of this town and has the compassion, competence and commitment to represent and fight for Redditch in our national parliament.
I believe she will make an excellent MP for Redditch and have no hesitation in endorsing her with my full support.
