Liz Ambekar (Hinchley Wood and Weston Green)

Liz Ambekar has lived in Hinchley Wood since 2014, previously living in Kingston and growing up in Oxfordshire. She is married with two daughters who attend Hinchley Wood School.

Liz is a charity finance director, with over ten years’ experience working in the charity sector and prior to that in the civil service and social housing. She is committed to the voluntary sector and has significant past volunteering experience including being a charity trustee of a care home for severely disabled young adults in Twickenham, a volunteer chaperone and helping at her children’s primary schools. Liz also supports the arts locally.

If elected Liz will work on behalf of all people in Hinchley Wood and Weston Green. She is particularly keen to focus on issues that affect young people and those in need, as well as affordable housing, child safety and our shared environment.

1. I believe that one of the biggest issues facing Hinchley Wood and Weston Green is ensuring there is sufficient affordable and social housing for those in need and the next generation, whilst always maintaining the individuality of the area, protecting the green belt and providing the infrastructure and services to support the population.

2. I will work tirelessly to support all of the local community, using the skills and experience I have gained as a charity finance director and the understanding I have as a work-ing mum of school age children. I will focus on housing, environment and services to those in need who are so often underrepresented.
