Dear Messenger...

As a resident of Burngreave, I would like to shine some light on the duties of Cabinet Member for Children, Young People and Families, Jackie Drayton.

I have tried to contact her on a number of occasions, left messages with her secretary at the town hall, telephoned her home telephone and emailed her a number of times over the last month. I needed some personal assistance to do with my children.

I have recently been helped by Mark Jones and MP Gill Furniss, who were both very approachable. It seems that Jackie is busier than our MP!

Response from Jackie Drayton

I’m sorry that people have had difficulty trying to contact me. I feel it’s very important that I am accessible to people who live in the Burngreave Ward. I certainly do not want to make excuses but need to say that I have had have communication difficulties this past year.

A change of mobile provider and devices meant that many emails I had written (and thought had been sent) were stuck in my outbox and never reached people. I have also had time without a mobile phone while it was being repaired.

These issues now look to be resolved. If people want to contact me it is always best to either email or call my office so officers can pass messages to me. I also have a regular surgery at Burngreave Library on the second Saturday of the month and if I am unable to attend I try and make sure that someone stands in for me.

I have lived in Burngreave since 1979 and have been the Councillor for Burngreave for over twenty years. I will always continue to work hard for my constituents and do my best to help local people.
