in lovely Somerset

Eddie Crane

For those of you who do not know me, my name is Eddie Crane and I am Bawdrip born and bred and my working life has been spent on the family farm in the village.
My grandchildren are the sixth generation to attend Bawdrip / Kingsmoor County Primary School.
I was Privileged to be the first chair of governors in 1995 when Bawdrip and Chedzoy schools were amalgamated to form Kingsmoor County primary school.
In the past I have served on both the Parish council and the Parochial Church council and feel that my knowledge of the village will stand me in good stead to offer any advice/experience to enhance the community within the village.
Irrespective of whether I am elected, I am always available to answer any question or offer help to anyone within this community.

Richard Culverhouse

I take a great interest in my community and surroundings and joined the Bawdrip Parish Council in December 2013 of which I have been a member up to the present day, the last 5 years as chairman. I think I have demonstrated my commitment to the village during this period and would welcome the opportunity to serve for a further period. I feel it is important for the village to be represented fairly by those who have an interest in their community without promoting personal interests.
I was born in Trowbridge Wiltshire and moved to Woolavington in 1982 joining Wessex Water and later heading the Company’s Billing operation near Bristol. On retirement I ran my own business for several years and was a member of Woolavington Parish Council for several years. The family moved to Bawdrip in 2008 and have been involved since then with various village activities including the village church, the community café and history group.
I am also a founder trustee and chairman of the Bridgwater Talking News charity that provides Audio recordings of the local newspapers to the blind and partially sighted.

Sue Greaves

My name is Sue Greaves and I have lived in a bungalow on New Road Bawdrip since 2000.  I was previously a Parish Councillor for eight years. If elected, I would strive to fulfil the code of conduct for Parish Councillors, namely selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty and leadership. Details of the Code of Conduct are available on the internet.  Google Code of Conduct for Parish Councils and choose the two local.gov.uk sites.

Keith Stockwell

My name is Keith Stockwell, and I have lived in this lovely village now for the past 9 years, and in Somerset since 2003 coming originally from the South East.
As an individual, I run my own Architectural Practise from my home Studio, serving Somerset and the South West and beyond.
I feel I can bring a wealth of experience to the village Parish Council and my aim is to be part of a more dynamic, proactive Parish Council in serving the community going forward. As an incomer to the village, albeit some years ago, I know first-hand the importance of integrating into village life and all it has to offer.
As Bawdrip increases its housing and welcomes New Villagers, I feel that I can empathise and welcome our New householders. I have links with our fantastic village school, having my granddaughter who attends, and know only too well the difficulties faced by villagers and the school particularly in regard to parking and traffic increases on these school days. 
I hope to be able to work with the Parish Council and School to alleviate some of these concerns and reduce the impact. I have been proactive in getting the village onto TrueSpeed Fibre since the onset. As a dog owner myself, we are blessed to have so many lovely walks from our Village. Green space and access to the countryside is so important and I would like to champion our footpaths and as well as our green spaces within the village for us and the next and future generations.
I am standing for the Parish Council on Thursday 5th May 2022 and would be delighted to receive your vote so that I can be pro-active in making our Parish council Dynamic and the voice of us villagers,
Thank you
