Jim Shorrock – your Labour Councillor in Shadsworth with Whitebirk
have lived in Shadsworth for over sixteen years and I’ve represented the Ward on Blackburn Council for over a
decade. I am actively involved in the local community and I’ve constantly defended the Ward against cutbacks and
closures. I was active in the campaign to keep Shadsworth Leisure Centre open and I’m pleased to see
the Centre still doing well. In the Town Hall I am Chair the Policy and Corporate Resources Scrutiny Committee
that holds the council to account. I am a Governor at Shadsworth Infant and Junior Schools and I am keen to
encourage and support investment in the Ward.

Cllr Ron O’Keeffe
In 2008, you elected me your Councillor for Shadsworth and Whitebirk after I had previously served for 4 years as Councillor for Meadowhead Ward. Over the past 4 years, I have worked hard in the community doing my best to improve the lives of local residents and their families throughout the area.
I take great pride in my work in the ward and feel privileged to represent the area on the Council. I promised in 2008 that I would work to clean up the grot spots and I have kept my word and I can be seen all around the ward litter picking with my yellow jacket on!

We hold mobile streets surgeries on the first Saturday in each month. We will post notices through doors during the week notifying residents of the surgery. Anyone who wants to speak to us can fix the notice in their window and we’ll call by.
If you would like your area or street to be prioritised for a street surgery, please let us know. But remember you don’t need to wait for a street surgery in order to contact us – we are always pleased to hear from anyone in the ward who needs our help.
