About Vicky

Originally from Yorkshire, Vicky has lived in West Bridgford for the past 15 years. As a cricket fan, she loves living so close to Trent Bridge! Vicky was elected as Rushcliffe Borough Council ward councillor for Musters. You can contact Vicky at: cllr.vprice@rushcliffe.gov.uk

Community Involvement

Vicky has a daughter who attends West Bridgford Junior School. She is involved in several community activities in West Bridgford including the West Bridgford Liberty Singers and West Bridgford Methodist Church.

Working Life

Having worked for many years in library and IT roles in the NHS and at the University of Nottingham, Vicky now runs her own IT Consultancy business.

How I Would Serve you

Vicky is concerned about education services, particularly central government funding cuts that leave many West Bridgford schools facing funding deficits. She supports the More than a Score campaign and is opposed to the introduction of testing for four-year-olds. Like many parents, she wants the 'catching up' on lost schooling to focus on children's well-being and emotional health, which has been impacted during the national lockdowns and echos the Children's Society view that "children are more than the sum of their grades."

The pressure on school places in West Bridgford is significant and ensuring that appropriate additional infrastructure - including new schools - is a key requirement for planning approval. Vicky would like to see more done to address the climate emergency, at all levels of government, and would like to see planning that prioritises sustainability.

"If elected I would continue to build on the work of previous Liberal Democrat councillors in Musters and commit to regular communication with residents via Focus newsletters, email updates and social media, as well as being available directly for any local case work.

Good government is collaborative and open to scrutiny. I am keen to work collaboratively with all opposition parties to hold the current Conservative majority to account."
