JEYAN ANKETELL works as part of your hardworking Lib Dem team. JEYAN is the best choice to be our new local councillor on Thursday 22 February 2018

Jeyan Anketell has lived in Stowe ward with his wife and two sons since 1985. Jeyan is a retired teacher, having been Head of Science at a local secondary school.
During his time in Lichfield Jeyan has taken on many community roles. Currently he is a Non-Stipendiary Minister (voluntary and unpaid priest) attached to St Michael's Church, Lichfield and since June 2016 been a Volunteer Reading/Listening Assistant at Scotch Orchard Community Primary School, previously attended by both his children many years ago, as they also did Nether Stowe School.

    The NHS and social care services are in a state of crisis. The Conservatives
    have left them chronically under-funded, and staff feeling embattled and
    undervalued. Need continues to grow while patient care suffers. Labour plans
    to address the crisis are unrealistic and risk crippling the economy. Liberal
    Democrats would save the NHS by:
    ● putting a penny in the pound on income tax to give the NHS and social care services the cash they need.
    ● making waiting times for mental health care match those for physical health care.
    ● limiting the amount elderly people have to pay for social care.
    Contrary to the claims of Celebrity First Dates contestant Michael Fabricant, the Samuel Johnson Hospital remains under threat.

    By Cllr Paul Ray

    The Garrick Theatre is a great asset for Lichfield, but it receives a
    considerable amount of funding from the District Council. This subsidy
    has steadily reduced over recent years - but the Garrick is still
    receiving £310,000 of your council tax money this year. And this is just
    at a time when the Council is making cuts to its services. The Lichfield
    Liberal Democrat team have been campaigning for the Garrick to
    improve its fundraising activities and become financially self-sufficient.
    The pressure we have put on the Conservative District
    Council is beginning to work. We are pleased that the Garrick has now employed a
    full-time Development Officer to raise funds and that the theatre has been
    successful in raising funding from Arts Council England. We will continue to
    monitor the situation and press for a variety of income streams to ensure the longterm
    sustainability of this theatre.

    The council announced a review of this funding earlier in the year and Cllr Paul Ray ensured that he was on the review group.

    Dear Michael

    In last week's Mercury there were two items where you made various claims.

    Have you and the Conservative Party not learned anything from June's general election? Please listen and be straight with us.

    1. School Funding

    You have claimed that there will be no funding cuts for our local schools - and no per pupil funding cuts.
