Not a political party, just people proud to be independent.

Neil Gregory and Richard Pavitt represent the two-seat ward of Littlebury, Chesterford and Wenden Lofts including Chrishall, Duddenhoe End, Elmdon and Strethall.

We were first elected in 2019 as part of a massive community-led swing away from Westminster politics towards independent representation. The reasons for that change are as valid today as they were then, perhaps even more so.

At the 2023 District Council elections we were returned with an increased share of the vote and the highest individual candidate votes in the district.

This level of community support is immensely gratifying and also humbling. We believe councillors should work for the benefit of the community, not party loyalty or vested interests. At times there will be hard decisions to be taken that will not please everyone but as a resident you need to be confident those decisions are made for the right reasons.

We look forward to your continued support.
