Rebecca Stares is a mum to her six year old daughter and a local Gosport girl, she is the daughter of Tony Stares who is both a Gosport Borough Football Club and Gosport Borough Cricket Club legend and granddaughter of Jim Stares. This love of sport has rubbed off on Becky who volunteers at both Gosport Borough Football Club and Gosport Cricket Club.
Rebecca’s daughter attends Leesland Infant School so Rebecca understands the issues that are facing families in Leesland and in Gosport.
In Gosport Rebecca Stares has supported youth facilities in Leesland Park, assisted in a careers conference for students in Years 10 and above across Gosport, to help them to reach their full potential in the world of work, held at St. Vincent College. She has also carried out voluntary work for local organisations.
Rebecca has a keen interest in improving Gosport for all residents, locally she will work to reduce anti-social behaviour and fly-tipping. She feels strongly about the safety of all residents and understands parents’ concerns with unsafe parking outside of schools and is keen to resolve this issue.
Rebecca fully supports the Conservatives who have been in control of Gosport for the past six years recognising all they have achieved over that period. Since 2010 they have put their plans into action and have delivered many projects throughout the Borough bringing investment, jobs, regeneration and conservation to Gosport and Lee-on-the-Solent. Investment has been achieved with many national and international companies coming to Gosport, bringing with them jobs and boosting the local economy. We have seen the demolition of the concrete jungle and the building of hundreds of new family homes in the Alver Village, providing a better quality of life for local people.
