7 Queens Mead,
Upton upon Severn,

"Upton is a town that punches above its weight. It is a go-to riverside experience with a multitude of retailers and a hospitality sector that is unparalleled. Its festivals have a world-wide following. I want to support progress to continue this focus. I moved to Upton in 2002 and after the floods of 2007 I helped form Upton Flood Forum to lobby the Environment Agency to secure the flood defences we now have. My background is as a journalist and editor with a wider background in public affairs and commercial public relations. I am also a vice present of Upton Rugby Club."

8 Thomas Morris House,
William Tennant Way,
Upton upon Severn,

"My name is Jennifer Stephens, I am 60 years old this year. I grew up in Upton upon Severn spending my early years age from 9 to 15 living in Ryall with my parents and 4 siblings, and attending the 3 local schools Upton Primary, Tunnel Hill High School and Hanley Castle High School. When my parents separated I went to live in Malvern with my mum until I left school, then we had to move again to Wiltshire due to family reasons. I came back to live in Upton in 2018 after my own 5 children had grown up and started their own lives, I now have 11 grandchildren. I instantly felt like I had returned home, and settled in very quickly. So now I begin a new chapter to my life and feel it is a huge privilege to become a Town Councillor for the community of Upton upon Severn, one that I never expected but have taken to my heart and intend to do my absolute best for."
