Paul Cotterill – the man with the Bickerstaffe Record 

Paul Cotterill - the man with the Bickerstaffe RecordPaul Cotterill, long term Bickerstaffe campaigner, has now been officially declared as the Labour candidate for Bickerstaffe electoral ward in the West Lancashire District Council elections on 03 May.  Paul lives in Sineacre Lane with his wife Phil and two children Max (7) and Joe (5).  Trained as a nurse, Paul worked for several years in Bangladesh,

India and

Tanzania.  He now works for a charity in

Southport, and is chairman to a local parenting support charity. He is founding Director of Bickerstaffe Children’s Services, which runs the local nursery and after school services, and was a successful Chairman of Finance  at Bickerstaffe Primary School until handing over the reins in 2006.    Paul is a Trustee of a major charitable trust  and has also been appointed as a director to a major pensions fund with investments of £4.5 billion pounds.    Paul has already won investment of £0.25million for the area, and is currently working on a range of other grant funding bids. 

He has campaigned for years for safer, quieter roads.  The first success was the HGV ban through parts of Bickerstaffe Parish.  He has just received confirmation that the whole area of Hall Lane, Church Road and Liverpool Road (Stanley Gate) will get a 30mph limit by next year.  He won’t rest till there are lower limits in all areas of Bickerstaffe where people want them.  He writes, publishes and distributes the Bickerstaffe Record, now in its sixth year. 

 With Paul, what you see is what you’d get as councillor – a prematurely white-haired bloke on a bike with huge enthusiasm for the job, the skills to do it, and a track record of delivery.  But don’t just take our word for it.  Turn to page 2 to see what local residents say about Paul’s record.    And on the back page, Paul delivers his personal commitment to every resident of Bickerstaffe Ward.  He hopes you’ll give him the chance to live up to that commitment by voting for him on Thursday 03 May.
