Village - Rob Raikes

I have lived in Greater Manchester for 45 years, and in Trafford for five.
I co-founded a worker co-operative bike shop in Rusholme in 1983 and worked there till 2009. On retirement, I started working as a Bikeability instructor, teaching children in year 6 to ride bikes safely on roads. 
The Green Party expresses best my political aspirations, in their policies, which in summary are:-

Elected Greens will work to:

Save the environment

Green our land

Protect animal life

Challenge privilege

End discrimination

Champion international friendships

Liberate our working lives

Unleash our creative power

Embed collective kindness in our society

Deliver quality of life for all.
