Cllr Caroline Newton
I have been a local Councillor since May 2010. Over the past eight years, I have been proud to represent the area in which I lived for many years. I went to Hillsgrove Primary and Townley Grammar schools and still live in Welling. My full-time job is as a Communications Manager in the City of London. Until the 2014 election, I was very closely involved in Scouting in Bexley, having been, among other roles, a Scout and leader at 1st East Wickham (St Michael’s) Scout group.
Aside from supporting residents to keep Bexley a pleasant and well-run place to live, I am passionate about education and opportunities for young people. In the coming years, I will also be keenly interested in the Borough’s Growth agenda and the opportunities it offers, as well as in maintaining value for money for Bexley’s residents while delivering the quality services they need.
