Profile:

I HAVE lived on Sydenham Estate for over 40 years with my wife and family, all my children have attended the local schools and college.

I was previously the Councillor for Sydenham ward 1987-1993.

My wife, Heather and I have both served as school governors and currently take an active part in the work of Westfield Church.

I have worked as an electrician for various local companies and recently retired after 19 years working at Hinkley Point.

Living on the estate I witness the problems in the area every day, the queues of traffic in and out of town along the Bath and Westonzoyland Roads and the parking problems around the shops.

The lack of a good bus service adds to the problem.

There is a great need for more local employment opportunities for the people of Bridgwater especially for young people leaving education for the first time.

We need genuinely affordable homes in the area to buy or rent especially for single people. I strongly support proposals to build council houses again as the best form of rented accommodation.

I would like to see more people being encouraged to get involved in their community and helping make the decisions that affect them.
