Cllr Kristy Adams with members of the planning team for Bedfordshire’s Black History month launch party. Kristy used ward fund money for this community event.
The event included a reading from a poet, many wonderful songs from the community gospel choir. A look back at the history of slavery and celebrating black achievements.
Kristy spoke of her political hero William Wilberforce and being a person of courage, long suffering and tenacity.
Kristy said, “We discussed the importance of this new political role … Theresa May is an inspiration to women in politics, and to myself.”
Seen here with Richard Fuller MP in front of Goldington Middle School, Kristy researched the Academies programme before the 2011 election and communicated the idea to the governing body.
She was part of a team of governors who transformed the school into an academy, raised standards, and employed an outstanding new head teacher.
This school has now become an Academy with ever-improving results.
