Cllr. Judy Caine - Oakley Vale

Borough Councillor

What is your name?
Cllr. Judy Caine

How long have you lived in Oakley Vale?
11 years

What brought you to live in Oakley Vale?
I moved up from London in 2006 with my partner and young son for a better quality of life and cleaner air. Living in a terraced house on the Heathrow flightpath not far from the Hanger Lane  Gyratory did leave us somewhat environmentally ‘challenged’.

What do you love about living in Oakley Vale?
Have some great friends here, enjoy running my media training company – HD Media CIC – and get a great deal of satisfaction being a local councillor. I also enjoy helping with the challenge of building a community on a new estate and am a trustee of the Oakley Vale Community Centre.

I Can’t wait to see the 3 newly commissioned Sculptures coming to Oakley Vale soon as part of the Corby Sculpture park initiative put together by the Oakley Vale Arts Panel. Check out the Oakley Vale Community Centre facebook page or local press for updates.

What groups and activities in Oakley Vale would you recommend to other people?
Join the Oakley Vale Community Association – I was a founder member of this organisation in 2006 and it’s still going strong with great leadership.

Get involved in the Oakley Vale Community Centre – they are currently looking for more trustees and volunteers.

Become a member of the Oakley Vale Arts Panel.

If you were to describe Oakley Vale with five words, what would they be?
Growing, fun place to be.
