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

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

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 in the town. The previous administration at Northumberland County Council did some great work in improving our town, and I hope the new administration follow suit and helps Ashington flourish.

As a young person, I am keen to encourage young people to become involved in improving their community as well as seeing more projects and activities for young people to take part in.

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

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