Robert Austin, 25, who has lived in Kenton Ward all his life, leads the Focus Team and was selected by Newcastle Liberal Democrats to be their candidate for Kenton in the City Council elections in 2021 and 2022.

He says "I have been active within the ward for many years, being part of a residents group which planned events for the local community, being a trustee of Kenton Park Community Association, the charity that manages Kenton Parks Sport Centre and taking part in local community litre picks around Rob Austin and Brenda HindmarshKenton Ward. Not only do I live in Kenton Ward, I am a youth worker and also work within the ward too part time at The Duke of Wellington.

"I believe that Kenton Ward deserves better. I've lived in Kenton all my life and over recent years I have seen a huge decline in our area and in the city as whole. Living here, I see the issues that we have daily, and believe that an active councillor dedicated to service and action for all the residnets is what we need to make Kenton a better to place to live and bring up families"
