A WSDC Councillor and ENPA member for four years, I believe that local issues should be non-political and that toeing national party lines should never take precedence.   With the new SWaT Council, I am seeking a further term and would feel privileged to represent my own community in Porlock, where I have lived for nine years.  Local connections include being one of the original petition arrangers to save Porlock’s bus service, likewise to save beds at Minehead Hospital.   A year or so ago, I started talking to the Somerset and Dorset Air Ambulance service regarding after-dark emergency landing facilities. , I am also involved in the organisation of Porlock Country Fair since 2012.   Porlock is special with much to offer.   I shall do all I can to maintain or improve Village and district life.

Incidentally, I have never wished to be ruled by an unelected foreign bureaucracy based in Brussels.
