|Trevor & Bert in Woolavington|
Bert Vessier has lived in Sedgemoor for 13 years and is passionate about his adopted home village. Out and about with a team of helpers he was finding people very keen to talk about the issues facing Woolavington. Bert - who did his French National service as a Gendarme, has seen his fair share of crime first hand and is very concerned about the running down of Police and Community Support by the ConDem government. He says "Now is a worrying time, the Tory led Sedgemoor District Council has just voted in a raft of cuts which we believe will impact negatively on the communities surrounding Bridgwater. Thoses cuts are unfair and target the more vulnerable people in our community."
"Don't allow the LibDems to split the vote and let the Tories back in.."
Trevor Hazelgrove lives in the Polden village of Catcott and has wide experience of management in business, community groups and the public sector. A former councillor in Frome, he is currently Chairman of the VISTA organisation and is involved in numerous community & professional groups including the Chartered Management Institute, the William Temple Foundation and Farleigh College (Autism & Aspergers syndrome advisory group). A former Parish Priest and industrial chaplain for 15 years in London, Trevor has a proven track record of hands-on community work including considerable fund raising experience.
Trevor says "We have to win Puriton & Woolavington to take Sedgemoor which is why we've been out leafletting, camvassing and meeting people the length and breadth of the ward. Thats From Cossington to Woolavington to Puriton to Dunball. The important message is that we CAN win here and we MUST. The LibDems have split the vote here in the past and let the Tories take the seat but this time they've just put a token presence of a single candidate in a crucial 2-member Marginal ward -so the key message here is Vote Labour here and kicking out the Tories here means we can take Sedgemoor District Council too. It's THAT important!"
