My name is Victor Bridges and I was born in Felton but have lived in Ashington for many years with my wife and family.

I am a member of the Labour Party and pleased to represent the Hirst Ward in the town.

I am interested in issues affecting my community, particularly in the Hirst, and want to work with fellow Councillors in bringing positive change to the town. I enjoy talking to the public when out and about in Ashington.

I enjoy gardening and have an allotment plot in the town.
