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,
