I came to Rossendale almost 30 years ago with my young son, and I haven’t looked back. I work here, have raised my family here and my grandchildren are growing up here – I love it. Rossendale is a great place to live, full of decent people who care about the area, people who have an opinion and aren’t afraid to voice it. It’s close knit with a strong community spirit. I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.
I have spent enough time in Darwen to see similar characteristics there. Darwen is full of strong people who want the best for Darwen. The people who live in this constituency deserve to be represented by someone who genuinely cares about the area and wants to see it thrive, and not someone who is just interested in advancing their career, and representing their political party.
A Labour Government would change things for the better...invest in our communities, and make sure that vital services were properly funded, and offer the leadership to help sort out the big issues that face our country. Alyson Barnes
