Eric Vardy (Holt)
I am standing for both the County and District Holt seats. You can download my county leaflet here and my district leaflet here.
Eric Vardy is a retired Police Inspector and Community Bookshop owner, living locally with his wife and family.
I appreciate that councils do not spend "their" money, but yours, so we have a duty to be prudent, especially in these difficult times. I believe that as communities we have a duty to help the vulnerable and needy wherever and whenever necessary and appropriate. One of my plans is to do whatever I can to reduce our carbon footprint. Tree planting is a priority for me, together with promoting carbon reduction initiatives within our homes and businesses. The government's £1.5bn Green Homes Grant and Decarbonisation schemes will go a long way to help with this. I recognise we are fortunate to live in an area of outstanding natural beauty, with unique towns and villages. I am committed to protecting, preserving, and enhancing these wherever possible.
My past experience as a business owner helps me understand the difficulties most businesses are experiencing, particularly as a result of Covid-19. I will do all I can to support them and their employees. I would like to see greater car parking provision in Holt, with increasing numbers of electric vehicle charging points. Finally, I will do all I can to encourage the provision of a new care home in or near Holt. We should be able to visit our elderly family and friends without travelling miles.
I am an active member of the University of the 3rd Age Walking Group, and an avid supporter of Hillside Animal Sanctuary.
