Thomas Mackereth

Town Councillor

Position on Town Council: Town Councillor

Ward: Beckside Ward


Hi I’m Tom. I was born and raised in Dalton. My hobbies include going to the gym, kayaking and hiking; getting out up the Lake District, enjoying the most beautiful place in the UK, that’s on our doorstep. I have loved growing up Dalton and I feel the community spirit is unrivalled compared to other local Towns in the District. I have strong ties to and I’m very passionate about the area. I feel Dalton in particular needs a new approach and fresh ideas to bring it back onto a level with surrounding towns and I feel I can directly contribute to doing this with my ideas and vision for the town going forward. I’m hoping with my co-option onto Dalton Town Council the younger generation also feel they have a voice regarding community matters and I’ll certainly do my best to voice these issues during future council meetings. I represent Beckside Ward, if you have any concerns please feel free to contact me
