I have lived in East Yorkshire most of my life, and moved to Hessle 7 years ago. I work in the manufacturing industry, having recently acheived 25 years of service with a large coatings company. I was delighted to be elected as a Town Councillor in May 2015. I think Hessle is a great place to live. It has a very good housing mix and a good range of locally owned shops and businesses. Both myself and my wife like the community ‘feel’ to Hessle. Local government and local businesses are going through testing times at the moment but myself and colleagues will do our utmost to help Hessle maintain its unique character and help keep it a desirable place to live and do business.

I have lived in Hessle now for 20 years. I also work in Hessle at the new Bridgehead site, working for Sgsco.

What started off as me setting up a neighbourhood watch group to not just help with crime, but also to improve the area, resulted in members of the parish approaching me to stand for the Town Council. Like I said to them then and I still say now, I like to and will strive to get a job done. Whether that be parking, bins, parks etc. Hessle is a fantastic place to live and I feel privileged to stand for its residents and their thoughts and views.

Cllr Viv Padden

I have lived in Hessle for thirteen years in total after a brief spell in Bristol. I became involved with Hessle Town Council in order to give residents a voice on all aspects of what it takes to look after their interests in Hessle that matter to them. I am against parking charges, but will strive to sort out the parking problems that are a main contentious issue all over Hessle. I will strive with business to promote their services as an ex business owner myself. I will support my Council colleagues in their desire to keep Hessle and promote it as a wonderful place to live.
