Mark is a Wiveliscombe resident, married with two adult sons. An active member of the community, supporting local causes in and around the town (including Wivey pool, 10 Radio, wheelbarrow carnival to name but a few), and many disability and carers causes (including as chair of Friends of Six Acres, the recently closed centre for adults with learning disabilities). Now director of a small enterprise providing day support for profoundly disabled people, Mark has a background in customer service and business development. “I believe in strong, inclusive communities that provide opportunities for people to lead good lives. The challenges we face today are too great to continue the braying politics of confrontation. We need firm, principled voices willing to cooperate, not just for now but for the generations to come.”
