Sarah Edwards, lead candidate for Summertown
Sarah Edwards studied at Durham University and has spent most of her career in the voluntary sector, gaining experience in service development, management and policy work. Until recently she worked in London for the national charity Victim Support, where she was also elected as a union representative. Sarah is now semi-retired. Since moving to North Oxford in 2012, she has trained as a community mediator and helps adults studying English. A keen allotment gardener, she also serves on her local allotments’ committee.
Sarah has been active in the green movement and the Green Party for many years and has worked on a wide range of environmental and social justice issues. She is standing for the Green Party because she believes it is the only party that can move us towards a sustainable future and a fairer society.
One of her key concerns is to tackle the housing crisis in a way that protects Oxford’s Green Belt and ensures there is adequate essential infrastructure. Sarah supports Low Carbon Oxford North and wants to see far greater political commitment to energy conservation, renewable energy and green transport policies. Summertown benefits from its small and independent businesses and Sarah is keen to support them. She believes that the area has more than enough retail space, and she will strongly oppose the introduction of more supermarkets, in Diamond Place or elsewhere.
