In the week leading up to 13 February, approximately 51,032 tests were carried out across the county and there have been 508 new confirmed cases.

The number of tests has increased due to the ramp up of testing (in particular, the rapid testing programme) but importantly, the number of positive cases has again reduced since last week’s update.

This website is for information of my political beliefs and what I am doing having been Elected by 8% of voters to Somerton Town Council May 2019

The Town Council has had a series of  resignations over the past month leaving 5 positions vacant. One was filled at the last  meeting of the council 14th July. The other 4 vacant seats on the council will now be  contested  in an election by the residents of    Somerton, in true  democratic fashion.

Candidates have plenty of time to prepare for the election as it will take place  on the 6th of  May 2021 next year. 

With the possibility of a whole new look to the way Somerset will be run in the future and potentially a devolving downward of responsibilities to Town and Parish councils. The next few years will be crucial to Somerton’s  future. So why not stand as  a candidate in our local election on 6th May.

With the new  Lockdown, our jewel in the crown of Somerton, It’s sports and recreational area previously was a hub for people. 

As a longtime advocate of this area, going all the way back to 1975, where in various rolls I have volunteered. I am very concerned that under the present  national medical crisis. 

There is an increase in behaviour, leaving litter and other activity, like teenagers  meeting in groups against the advice and now the law. You risk a £200 fine for EVERY case were you break the rules

Prepare for the journey ahead.

I will work hard to represent Somerton and its population to the best of my ability. Once again thank you for your confidence in me.
