However, we have always said that we are here to represent local issues and support matters which residents find important to our ward. We are aware of the challenges facing local businesses, tourism, planning, employment and environment and how important it is to be responsive to all community needs and services.

As you are aware we are in a newly formed ward with Curry Rivel now combining with Langport and Huish Episcopi and as such we will both be working together over the next few years to ensure all the diverse aspects of these areas are represented and supported.

Please do get in touch if we can help in anyway. Our contact details are as follows: Clare — clare.paul@southsomerset.gov.uk or 07879 423117 Tiffany — tiffany.osborne@southsomerset.gov.uk or 07876 565546
