Dixie has been a resident of Nailsbourne near Kingston St Mary for 27 years.

She has recently retired after a long teaching career in further education, before which she worked as a cartographic draughtsman at Taunton Hydrographic Department.

She has adult children and grandchildren, and is passionate about the environment and the need to act on climate change to secure our future.

She wants Taunton to become a Garden Town in the realest sense, with green spaces for wildlife and people, as well as a thriving town centre where independent sustainable businesses can flourish.

She supports Taunton Area Cycling Campaign for improved cycling and pedestrian routes as well as Citizens UK, an apolitical organisation which works for social good.

In her own ward she is determined that existing residents should experience minimum disruption but maximum gain from the housing development already been agreed, and will work hard for all residents.
