My name is Ken Parry and I was born in the Hirst area of Ashington.

I am passionate about the area and I am determined to represent it well both as Town and County Councillor.

I am a member of the Labour Party and a retired fireman.

I am on the steering group for the regeneration of the Town Centre and the Hirst Park Revival Steering Group aiming to significantly improve the Park. I also work closely with the Heart of the Hirst Residents Group.
