Party: Somerset County Gazette: ElectionsModule Party Logo Independent


I have spent most of my life in Somerset and moved to Minehead over nine years ago. I feel very lucky to live in such a beautiful area and, with access to the sea on one side and Exmoor on the other side, there is always something new to see and do.

I am a member of Gateway Events (which replaced the disbanded Minehead Events Group) and really enjoy being part of the team that put on what is seen as Minehead’s most successful Christmas Festival ever, last year. I am also involved with the Old Hospital regeneration programme, Minehead Connect CIC, and have worked on projects both inside and outside the building.

I am standing as an Independent because I believe party politics is a hindrance in local government. I will make no empty promises but will always do what I feel is be best for our community.
