My name is Kris Lavery and I represent the College Ward on Ashington Town Council. 
 
I have lived in the ward for over 15 years and as an active Labour Party Member I am passionate about helping both the College Ward and Ashington as a whole.  
 
I want Ashington to be a clean, tidy and pleasant place to both live, work and visit and I believe that Ashington has great potential to be the focal point of South East Northumberland once again.  As a young person I believe everyone should have the opportunity to contribute to improving the town.
 
I work in the office of Ian Mearns, MP for Gateshead, and as well as my Town Council duties I enjoy playing and watching football and golf as well as volunteering at Ashington Community Football Club.
