|Sydenham Fairfax & Dunwear wards United|
Focus on Fairfax
The Fairfax (North Sydenham ) ward strecthes from the shops on Parkway to the Bath road, bounded by the Railway in the west and the Town Boundary in the east. Graham Granter, who has represented Sydenham for 8 years as a Town & District councillor says "My ward now includes the Bower manor estate which returned 3 Tories last time so we've got a battle on our hands ! However, we're out on the doorsteps and the response has been good. We know the Tories are worried and we know they're unpopular because of the Splash closure. But we need to get the word across that people must turn out an vote on the day and make sure it;s for Labour."
|Reg Winslow (Fairfax)|
Reg says “My role with Sedgemoor Council has always been front line, dealing directly with customers and Councillors, ensuring and achieving good service delivery to residents. I have built good working relationships with many colleagues in various departments during my time with Sedgemoor Council and would This should prove useful in my role as a Councillor . I would see my primary role as acting for and on behalf of residents and to represent residents’ interests.”

Tories on the way out
The Tories are so certain that sitting councillor Mike Cresswell will lose his seat that they have dropped him as proposed SDC Chairman for next year while his partner in crime ,David Hall, is suffering equal bouts of unpopularity as he is on the Somerset County ruling Tory executive which has cut funding through swathes of Community services . The third Tory candidate in Fairfax, Peter Lowe, achieved notoriety recently when he was the only solitary person at the 200 strong Bridgwater town meeting to vote in favour of Tescos.
