Party: Somerset County Gazette: ElectionsModule Party Logo Independent


When young I lived on the family-run farm on Exmoor.  I regularly  visited Minehead and attended College here and in Cannington, gaining an agricultural qualification.    When I was 17 I left the area and moved to London, becoming involved in the entertainments and corporate events industry where I worked my way up to a senior position.    Dealing with many different Councils all over the South of England,  I gained extensive knowledge of business and finance and eventually ran my own business.   In 2014 I and my family moved back to West Somerset.  Since then I have been involved with the Old Hospital project in Minehead as well as being a founding member of the Gateway Events team which brought the Christmas Festival to Minehead.  I am a serving member of Minehead Town Council, being Vice Chair of Finance.   If elected I will fight hard to ensure Minehead gets the services and amenities currently enjoyed by the residents of Taunton and other areas in the District and I will always champion the needs of Alcombe and Minehead.
