Kay has played a major part in transforming the Fallowfield community. Inhabited by a constant turnover of students, Fallowfield was riddled with rubbish, street crime and unused spaces. Kay has played a major part in setting up a neighbourhood community scheme in which residents may come together and take action. Thanks to Kay, the council agreed to more bins, flower boxes along the roadsides, a small garden area outside the local Tesco covering what used to be a 'rubbish dump' in which alcoholics would gather. Due to Kay's selfless will and determination in contacting the local council, more community support workers now patrol the streets, meaning that there is significantly less crime. Alongside this, Kay is also treasurer for her local park, Platt Fields and spends countless hours fund raising and managing the finances in the hope that the park will be well maintained for current and future visitors to enjoy. She also runs a local community house, The Brow, which provides all manner of services for people needing counselling, child-care or a cup of tea and a chat with a friendly face. All of this is done purely out of selflessness and the benefit of other people. It is also done despite suffering from arthritis in both knees and having overcome Breast Cancer. A truly inspirational woman on all counts, as I am sure would be agreed by many local people, councillors and friends who have been touched by the kind nature of this strong, independent woman.
