Valmai Wainhouse Labour Candidate for Fleet East ward, Hart District Council
Labour Candidate for Fleet East ward, Hart District Council

Valmai Wainhouse has lived in the Fleet East Ward for over 30 years. She taught in Hampshire schools for 15 years before becoming an education advisor/inspector for Hampshire County Council.

Having worked with all the schools in the area over many years, she is passionate about supporting children and staff to work within a humane education system that puts well-being before testing and data. To support the physical and mental health of people of all ages in the community, Val is keen to promote a cleaner, well-planned environment and a creative approach to the regeneration of the town centre. Now retired, she still has the energy and commitment to make Fleet a great place to live.

I’ve lived in Fleet for 30 years and taught in Hampshire schools before becoming an education adviser, working with all the schools in the area. So I’m passionate about supporting children, parents and staff within a system that puts well-being before testing. 

To support the physical and mental health of people of all ages, Hart needs fresh blood and energy. I want to give a voice to people who feel their views have been ignored for too long. 

Nationally, Labour has listened and learned and can provide this opportunity at last. Locally we can make a real difference.

What has Labour done recently for Hart?

Energy and food prices are rocketing and many people will struggle, while some will be faced with the terrible choice between heating and eating. In North East Hampshire, Labour raised a petition last November (2021) which resulted in Hart Council providing £10,000 to Hart Foodbank.

Conservative-dominated Hampshire Council proposed massive cuts to health services in 2021, at a time of huge need. We in Labour campaigned through social media, and residents provided a huge response. The Tories were forced to back down on the cuts.

These achievements were from outside the Council – if we can get direct access to Council staff and other councillors, by having our own Labour councillors, we can achieve so much more.

Labour is On Your Side

On Thursday 5 May, we can change the course of our country, starting in our local communities. Britain can’t afford the Tories. Prices are going through the roof and wages are going through the floor. We’ve seen the biggest drop in living standards since the 1950s. Taxes are the highest in 70 years. Britain deserves better than this.

It’s time to send the Tories a message on the cost of living crisis they can’t ignore. The more Labour voices there are in Local Government across the country, the stronger the message we send to the Conservatives that the British people deserve better.

And never let us forget, while we were separated from loved ones, Boris Johnson broke his own rules and partied.

Only a vote for Labour can encourage millions across the country to believe that another way is possible.

It’s time for change

Thousands of new homes in the district have put enormous pressure on roads, GP and hospital services and damaged the natural environment. New homes built WITHOUT regard for the environment: no solar panels, heat pumps or gardens large enough to attract wild birds.

Yet Fleet town centre has not benefitted from the increased population: so many shops have closed. Public transport is inadequate or non-existent.
Hart councillors have conducted talking shops for years, but failed to take meaningful action. You deserve much better, and Labour is ready to serve Hart as it serves so well in Manchester, London, and so many places.

What will Labour do for you?

We care about the needs of all the community and we represent and will fight for the whole community: all ages, all creeds, all genders, all incomes.
We care about the environment and the world our children will inherit. It’s worth fighting for!
We work actively for you on local and on nationally important issues: the NHS, the economy, Social Care, Education, Equality, International Relations.
