#HERstory – Councillor Lynn Pratt

My political story began in the then constituency of Bury and Radcliffe in Greater Manchester when I joined the Conservative Party in 1974 between the two General Elections held that year.
 
I was born in the Lancashire mill town of Accrington where both my grandmothers were members of the Conservative & Unionist Party – Women’s section.
 
Having lived in various parts of the country and being involved with the Conservative Party more on a back room capacity, I came to live in Bicester where in 1999 I was first elected to Bicester Town Council and subsequently elected to Cherwell District Council and I am still of member of both Councils today.
 
I am very proud to have been Mayor of Bicester on two occasions and as an elected member  endeavour to serve the community I represent on both councils.
