Jeremy, who has lived in Witheridge parish for more than 50 years, is an experienced county councillor, having served the division of South Molton at County Hall for 20 years.
As a farmer Jeremy understands the needs of rural communities and is proud to represent them. He has worked closely parish councils and the highway department over the past 4 years to maintain and improve the condition of local roads, particularly regarding resurfacing and drainage, which he knows is a vital issue for residents. This campaign has been a focus of his, but he knows there is always so much more to do. He is also proud of his record of securing £50,000 to support village halls and community centres in villages across the area which are at the heart of village life.
Jeremy believes securing local services is vital for North Devon’s future and has worked hard to secure funding for lifelines like South Molton’s Pip Centre, defibrillators in East Worlington and Meshaw and an extra bus stop in Witheridge.
If re-elected, Jeremy will continue to stand up for the people of South Molton and the surrounding parishes and will lobby and work with DCC Officers, our Police and Crime Commissioner, MPs and Ministers to correct issues like the historic under funding of our excellent local schools and rural crime which sadly continues to affect our farming communities.
