My name is Victor Bridges and I was born in Felton but have lived in Ashington for many years with my wife and family.

I recently joined the Labour Party and I am pleased to represent the Hirst Ward in the town.  I am interested in issues affecting my community, particularly in the Hirst Ward, and want to work with fellow Councillors in bringing positive change to the town.

I volunteer with the Target North Hirst Residents Group, enjoy gardening as well as having an allotment garden in Ashington.
