Nick grew up in Mark, attended local schools and trained as a motor mechanic at Bridgwater College.  Now in his 20's, he lives in Highbridge and earns his living selling craft beers for a local micro-brewery.

Nick is determined to make a positive change locally.  He is keen to get more young people to engage and become involved in politics. He’s setting an example by standing for election to Sedgemoor - so that the next council reflects a range of ages, interests and opinions.Growing up in and around the area he is standing for means he knows the area and our community well.

The current councillors at Sedgemoor are almost invisible - so if I’m elected, I’ll run monthly surgeries so you can find me easily.

 At school and college, we were taught to work hard for our future.  The fact is that my generation might not even have a future if there isn’t immediate action on climate change, let alone our children and grandchildren.

We need action - not just words - and it is really important that we have councillors who represent a cross section of the community.  When people ask me if I’m too young to be a councillor, I tell them “No! I’m too young not to be a councillor”.

I want to make a positive change in the local community and change the face of local politics.

I am an outgoing person and incredibly approachable.  If I am elected on the 2nd May, I want you to feel you can stop me for a chat and ask me for help or to discuss an idea that you think Sedgemoor could support.
