Cllr Alastair Andrews
Far Cotton and Delapre Community Council
I was born and raised in Far Cotton and have resident in the area for 40 years. I feel very personally invested in the area, it's community and it's people.
Being Mixed-Race and from a single parent family I am passionate about keeping the areas safe and welcoming for all backgrounds and ages. I am a keen martial artist and have represented my town, county and country on many occassions holding several championship titles. I am a big advocate of keeping our youth engaged with our local boxing club and see such activities as an avenue away from crime towards good health.
I have done work with the Frank Bruno Foundation in Standens Barn, The Bridge Substance Misuse Program on Gold Street and I co-run a men's mental health support group through the GP's Alliance and the McCarthy Dixon Foundation in town centre. I am also deeply appreciative of our local wildlife and history and can be found most mornings feeding the crows at Delapre Abbey whilst enjoying the woodlands."
