Here in Thurlton ward Andy Evans is the Conservative Candidate who works to improve your lives.
Andy has lived in Toft Monks for nearly twenty years having moved from Hertfordshire to take up a job in the rural parts of Norfolk & Suffolk. He is married to Ann and together they have four grown up sons.
Andy is a pharmacist by profession and made the whole of his forty-two year career in the NHS. Starting as a hospital pharmacist, he rose up the ranks to become the most senior manager in the part of the local NHS that focuses on community health in the coastal communities of Norfolk & Suffolk.
Andy is proud that his sons followed him into medical careers and enjoys travelling to spend time with his family. He is keen on conservation and appreciates our natural environment including the importance of the Southern Rivers on the Broads.
Andy knows what it takes to create places where good health is as important as creating a strong economy.
It was his job to bring Councils, the NHS, police and other parts of the State together to actually solve problems one family at a time to make healthier communities.
He says “The Covid lockdowns really brought home to me what a wonderful place we live in. There is a great community spirit which sustained us through some dark days. I saw at first hand how the local Council responded by delivering food & medicine parcels to the most vulnerable, who were stuck at home.
He knows from personal experience that this is so much more important in rural villages where deprivation is not as obvious as it might be in a city. His local knowledge means he knows at first-hand the issues that people are concerned about.
Andy has the enthusiasm, drive and commitment to be a district Councillor.
He says “Throughout my career in medicine I knew how important it was to have people on your side and by your side. I know I can be the strong voice that speaks up for local residents. I am sure I will be able to use my influence to get things sorted in our local villages and make a larger contribution across the district making South Norfolk one of the best places to live in the Country. Please support me at the polls on 4th May.”
