My name is Tom Wilson and I have been married for 40 years and have one son.

I have recently retired from Northgate Hospital where I worked for 20 years having previously worked in the coal mining industry. I was born and have lived in the Ashington Central Ward for most of my life.  

I am an Independent member of the Council and have represented the Central Ward at both District and County level for the past 30 years. As a Town Councillor for many years I believe I know and understand many of the problems and challenges that local people face. I always try my very best to be available and help out whenver and wherever I can.

Now that the A1 link road has been completed I will be focusing my efforts on the Ashington & Tyne rail link. These two projects will hopefully attract much needed business and retail investment into the town. 

I hold two surgeries a month for residents, please contact me for more information.
