Introducing Toks Bailey

On 25th September voters in Plumstead go to the polls to elect a new councillor for their ward.  The Conservative candidate is local community campaigner Toks Bailey.  Here's a little bit about her:


Toks was born in London and brought up in the UK and Nigeria  and is an active community leader both through her church and through housing and children’s groups. Her children have both been educated in Plumstead schools; her daughter went to St Pauls and her son is at Willowdene School on Swingate Lane where Toks is a Governor.  Toks is a founder of JMF – a charity for young people with disabilities. Her son is autistic and Toks believes passionately that children and young people should be given a good start in life with the right support and advice.  

Toks is very involved with housing issues and is a trustee of Gallions Housing Association. Toks is also an active member of the BME Forum in Greenwich representing various issues affecting minority ethnic groups.

She feels strongly that Plumstead has no voice on the council.  Toks is a member of a Safer Neighbourhood Panel and feels Plumstead suffers from a lack of police.  She also feels that Plumstead town centre is ignored in favour of Woolwich.  Her priorities include campaigning for more police, a Town Centre Manager and a better leisure centre. Toks wants to use her experience and enthusiasm to make a difference to the lives of people living and working in Plumstead.
