Immy Blackburn-Horgan - Queen Edith's

Immy is a dedicated, local champion who has hit the ground running since being elected as our City Councillor in November.

Even before getting elected, Immy was already making a difference for 5 years in Queen Edith’s as a community activist and secretary of RedCross Areas Residents Association.

Immy is particularly passionate about giving vulnerable children and young people the best opportunities in life and tackling crime and anti- social behaviour, volunteering with the Police and  running a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme in Queen Edith’s.

Since being elected as a councillor, Immy has: 
Consulted local people to improve road safety around our schools, joined Speedwatch, called for CCTV to tackle anti-social behaviour around Nightingale Community Garden, Pavilion and rec, raised residents’ concerns re: the controversial licensing application on Cherry Hinton Road, ran a Pavilion open event plus much more!

If re-elected in May, Immy will continue her campaigning for Queen Edith’s and be a champion for our community.

Immy's Record of Action

Back the candidate with a record of action for our community

Immy has worked with the Council and the Police’s Community Payback scheme to clean up litter in Queen Edith’s. 
She supports the Lib Dem team’s proposal to reverse cuts to the council’s anti fly- tipping and litter officers. 

Immy helped establish Hope’s Friendship Garden with Children on Red Cross Lane alongside a noticeboard for local business and the council.
This has now expanded with Ed’s Orchard opened by Lib Dem Cllr Daniel Lee.

Immy is passionate about tackling drug dealing and anti-social behaviour. 
She helped set up Red Cross Lane Area Neighbourhood Watch, approved by the police, and helps clean up spaces such as Nightingale Community Garden.

When Lib Dem Cllr Amanda Taylor conducted a traffic survey to tackle anti-social parking, Immy worked to ensure all views on both sides were listened to. 
As a result, yellow lines were painted and CCTV has now been installed.
