She is an elected Councillor for Bredbury Green & Romiley and Deputy Leader of the Liberal Democrat group on Stockport Council. Lisa trains and mentors other councillors from around the country.

Lisa is a very active and successful campaigner. Campaigns she has been at the heart of include securing Specialist Status for Stepping Hill Hospital, saving the Rose Hill to Manchester rail service, keeping the 380/381 bus running and improving road safety across the borough with a campaign to get 20mph speed limits for residential roads.

Lisa cares deeply about Hazel Grove Constituency and its people, working as an active volunteer locally. Her voluntary roles include being a trustee for the New Horizons Canal Boat for disabled people and their carers in Marple, working as a volunteer for the Woodley & Romiley Towpath Team, and being a trustee of the Barrack Hill Education Trust.

Lisa is known locally and nationally for being gutsy and getting things done, whether it is leading on the successful campaign to secure Specialist Status for Stepping Hill hospital, working as a Director of the Joseph Rowntree Reform Trust or convincing Council bosses to give Asset of Community Value status to protect local green space.

The climate emergency and the need for us to protect green space, tackle air pollution and protect wildlife are all areas that Lisa is campaigning hard on.
