My name is Liam Lavery, I was born in Ashington and I have lived in the College Ward all my life.

In 2015 I graduated from Northumbria University with a degree in Politics.  I follow local, national and world political events and current affairs on a daily basis and I currently work in the Member of Parliament’s office for Jarrow.

I am a Labour Party Member and represent the College Ward on the Town Council.  I am extremely proud to come from Ashington.  As a town councillor, I am keen to see more investment and service improvement in the town.

I enjoy sport, particularly football and follow Newcastle United Football Club as well as cricket, golf and greyhound racing.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any issues.
