Anthony Lowe

Fighting for a fair deal for The Wrekin

A local candidate who understands our area

Former Mayor of Wellington, Anthony Lowe, moved to the area in 1989, with his wife, Julie. They had a smallholding outside Waters Upton for 20 years, at various times keeping geese, hens, sheep, goats, pony, donkeys and dogs. Since 2014, they have lived in Wellington.

Anthony is currently a Wellington Town Councillor and has chaired Wellington Literary and Arts Festival for three years.

Protecting our A&E department at Princess Royal Hospital  is one of Anthony's top priorities for our local area.

"I believe that the first task of an MP for The Wrekin is to be available and to be a dedicated listener to, and representative of, all those who are lucky enough to live in this vibrant constituency."

An ardent campaigner on climate change

Anthony believes passionately that climate change must be tackled as a matter of urgency. He played a key role in getting solar panels installed on Wellington Bus Station, and is a regular volunteer with the local e-bike delivery service, providing sustainable grocery deliveries to local residents.

Anthony has been a member of Wellington's Climate Change Working Group and has been closely involved in Wellington achieving Plastic Free Community status under the guidance of Surfers Against Sewage and Telford & Wrekin Council.

Committed to fixing our broken relationship with our European neighbours

Anthony knows first hand how important our relationship with our European neighbours is to our local economy, having worked for 35 years for French and German companies that have invested and created jobs in Telford & Wrekin.

Anthony is supportive of the realistic approach spelt out by Sir Ed Davey to work towards re-joining the single market and customs union in the long term in order to remove the Brexit trade barriers that are damaging our local businesses.
