Ray Wootten

Councillor for Grantham St Wulfram's Ward

I have been re-elected as your Conservative Councillor for Grantham St Wulfram’s ward. I am also the County Councillor for Grantham North.

I am married to Linda with two grown up children. I retired as a Police Officer from Bedfordshire Police with 22 years service, prior to this I was in the Royal Air Force.                        

I am currently the Chairman of the Grantham East Neighbourhood Police Panel and Vice Chairman of Lincolnshire Police and Crime Panel. My aim is to make our community a safe place to live. I am responsible for designing out crime in an area that had suffered anti social behaviour for many years.  I also strongly promoted the new Anti Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014.


In addition, I regularly attend Grantham Hospital board meetings and am a member of Shaping Health for Mid Kesteven which is planning the future health care in Grantham. I also attend Neighbourhood Resident Group meetings and local residents coffee mornings.

I have successfully represented your views on various major and minor planning issues including overturning a request for a mobile phone mast.

I am a member of Grantham Lions Club and a governor at two local schools.

I am also the Chairman of Grantham Almshouses.

Ray had a successful year as Mayor of Grantham 2009/10 raising over £15000 for local good causes.

I had the honour of being Chairman of Lincolnshire County Council and currently Vice Chairman of SKDC.

I believe in keeping Council tax low whilst maintaining a good level of service. I support the Grantham Growth plan and the East West Relief road.

Should the residents of Grantham decide at any time that they would want a Town Council, the Conservatives would do all they can to facilitate this.

I am passionate about serving the community.
