Since I was elected in 2015 I have an average attendance of 98% and have met many interesting people who work tirelessly for the community at large.  Part of the Highbridge District ward includes the Alstone area of West Huntspill and I have attended as many of their Parish meetings as possible.


I vigorously support the creation of more job opportunities, and also the apprenticeship scheme.  I hope to work effectively to improve the systems where both school leavers and older people, have access to high grade vocational training and re-training, and would seek the cooperation of the inward investment contacts.

In June 2018 I asked the BBC to broadcast Radio 4 “Any Questions”  live from Highbridge Community Hall in Market Street.  It was attended by an audience of 175.  The Highbridge Sea, Army and Air Cadets assisted as stewards and were complimented by the Chairman Jonathan Dimbleby and other celebrities on the Panel.  Highbridge is the go to place for living and for work.
