Party: Somerset County Gazette: ElectionsModule Party Logo Liberal Democrat


Scilla is a new member of the Liberal Democrats.

She has lived on Exmoor most of her life, and currently serves on the Selworthy and Minehead Without parish council.

She has been a school governor at Porlock school, and worked for social services for 15 years. 

She says: “Now I’m retired I am busier than I ever was in my working life,” and now works for the National Trust and the Holnicote Tenants’ Association.  

Scilla hopes to introduce dormice to the community orchard in Allerford, which she runs.

She is very keen on the Liberal Democrat plan to introduce high-speed internet to rural areas.

“I want to see Exmoor grow and develop - but most of all, I want to be a voice for Porlock and Exmoor in the new Somerset West and Taunton Council.”
