My name is Stephen Fenwick and I have lived in Ashington for most of my life and attended Ashington High School.

I served for six years in Her Majesty's Armed Forces before returning to the area to commence employment with Castle Morpeth Borough Council. I moved to Wansbeck District Council and then Northumberland County Council, following the forming of the single unitary authority. 

I am an independent member representing the College Ward on the Town Council. I am interested in the local environment and will be campaigning for cleaner footpaths, better road repairs and ensuring that our parks and open spaces are kept to a good standard. I will address any concerns raised by residents and our local community groups and associations.
