Dawn lives with her partner and two teenage children who attend King Alfred’s School.

Dawn has a degree in midwifery, and has worked in caring for others since leaving school.

She is now the Operations Manager of In Charley’s Memory, the local young people’s mental health charity set up in 2014.

I have fond memories of growing up in Highbridge, doing the weekly shop with my mother and Summers spent at the Apex.

For too long, our town has been in decline.  This must change. Highbridge needs a fresh vision, a positive outlook and a burst of energy, enthusiasm and passion.

I want to make Highbridge the enjoyable, well-represented community it once was. We need to invest in Highbridge and make it a destination, not just somewhere people drive through on their way to Burnham or the M5!

Why I’m standing ...

I feel very strongly that Councillors should be visible, approachable and hard working.

I grew up in Highbridge and I’m proud of my roots. I’m standing because I care and I want to make a difference.

We must support families and their children - but so many vital services are being cut, so many green areas are in the sights of property developers who give nothing back, and we risk leaving a poor legacy for our children.
