Councillor Val Whitehead
I grew up in Sheffield and I’ve lived in Bow West with my husband for 25 years. My three children grew up here and went to local schools. I work as a freelance TV sound engineer and also volunteer in a toy library in Bow Idea Store.
I’ve also been treasurer of Toyhouse Libraries, a charity which provides services to parents and children in Tower Hamlets, for 20 years. I’m particularly interested in the environment and in community involvement.
