My wife and I have lived and worked in Minehead running a local convenience store for over 15 years.

Both of our children were educated at Minehead schools before going onto university.

I have gained valuable experience in local governance, being first elected on to the District Council in 2011, and have served on the Planning and Licensing Committee’s as well as being appointed to a Cabinet position 2 years ago, and also the Shadow Executive of the New Somerset West & Taunton Council.

Locally I have chaired the Minehead Events Group bringing many events to Minehead including the Red Arrows summer festival, Power Boat and Jet Ski Racing and the Observation Wheel.

I am also a director of the Minehead Bid.

I am keen to ensure the town continues to benefit from more affordable housing for local people, economic regeneration and jobs, while working to bring back much needed leisure facilities.
