Councillor Linda Williams

First Elected

Mobile Telephone No:

I have lived in Washington all my life and attended High Usworth Infant and Junior Schools (now George Washington Primary) and Usworth Comprehensive.  I have vivid memories of writing practice in junior school being the names of the villages, when most of them were just words; now we have communities around the words.  I have three grown up children and three grandchildren.


I have been a school governor since 1991 and decided to become a Councillor because I believe in helping people to make their lives and environment better.  My general interests are around families and ensuring that everyone gets the best opportunities they can, regardless of age.  In my spare time I enjoy being creative, making cards, textiles projects and cake decorating.


I hold a Ward Surgery every second Saturday of the month (except August and Bank Holiday Weekends) between 10.00am and 12.00 noon at the Columbia Community Centre, Oxclose Road, Columbia.
