Councillor Miranda Cox
Kirkham South Ward
I was co-opted onto Kirkham Town Council in 2015. I have lived and worked in Kirkham for almost 20 years with my family, and over that time have been actively involved in numerous local voluntary groups and community activities. I currently chair The Friends of Kirkham Parks, a volunteer community group established in 2008 to develop and fundraise for the new play area on the Memorial Park. The Friends are now working to support new initiatives for Kirkham. In the past I have been involved in a Community Steering Group for Rural Splash, primary school PTFA and club day committees. I believe that our young people have many talents and interests and I am hoping that my previous employment as a Teaching Assistant will enable me to actively engage them in new opportunities. I currently sit on Town Council's Leisure Parks and Open Spaces Sub Committee.
