Introducing your Labour Candidate Rajna Boksh 'I live in the Desborough Loatland Ward and I love my home town'
My parents moved to Desborough in 1989. They wanted to live in a friendly town to bring up their family and open their business. The business was opened in the same year known as ‘The Serina Restaurant’. It ran as a family business for 28 years and I managed it for 11 years until it was sold.
I attended Havelock School and the local secondary school.
My parents and 3 siblings still live in the town with our families. I am now a parent of a 7 year old who attends the local school. This town is our home.
I have always worked locally; my first job was at the Supermarket in Gladstone Street where I worked for 9 years. I then became self-employed and had the opportunity to manage the family business.
After the sale of the business, I worked for two local businesses as I wanted to find a job that worked around my child. From 2012 – 2017 I was employed as an Exam Invigilator at Montsaye Academy.
I now work for Montsaye Academy as a Teaching Assistant. I really love my role even though it can be challenging at times. The outcome is worth it.
Involvement in the town:
Whilst having the business, I was involved with the carnival committee, helped raise funds for the town by sponsoring some stalls for the carnival then manning it on the carnival day with my family and friends.
I organised many fundraising events for the carnival and saw them through.
I was a Marshall for the Desborough Running Club.
I provided jobs for young adults in Desborough at the restaurant.
In my spare time I was a volunteer at Loatlands Nursery assisting the nursery leader and I also worked at Havelock school as a lunch time supervisor.
Why I want to stand as a candidate for the Loatland Ward:
Young People –
I want to work with the younger generation/young adults as there have been a lot of concerns with safety as well as their well-being. I also feel they need more representation. They are the future of the town.
Desborough is a growing town with a mixture of cultures; we need to embrace/learn and welcome them.
There have been a lot of concerns over the public not feeling safe due to recent events in the town. I know cameras have been put in place but I would like to do more and work closely with the community.
Rubbish littering has also been a concern in parts of the town; there is a need to work with the community to stop this and, as the town continues to grow, we need better recycling facilities.
A safer, cleaner Desborough with more opportunities for all to bring the different communities and cultures together.
