Glenys Harrison-Poole was born in Minehead and lived here almost all her life. She currently lives with three Democratic Dogs and the family can often be spotted on the streets of the town.

Glenys worked as a teacher at Minehead First School and served as a school governor for sixteen years. She still teaches part-time and sings with the Minehead Street Choir.

She cares passionately about the environment of Exmoor.

“I am very excitged to see the environmental pledges in the Liberal Democrat Manifesto,” she says.

If she is elected, she will campaign for better bus services in and around West Somerset.

“I will also be fighting to restore train services between Minehead and Taunton. This service could be bringing in so much more trade for our local businesses, and reduce the pressure on our roads as well,” she said.

Minehead is a wonderful place to live, and Glenys looks forward to a chance to represent its lovely people.
