Statement from Lizzy

“As a fairly new Clevedon import (via Bristol, Dorset and France), I am very excited to have been trusted to take on the role of Town Councillor for the Walton St Mary ward.

I currently wear several hats as a small business owner, runner, ancient dog owner, and a mum of 3, ranging from nearly 16 to 15 months. My interests revolve around my family, camping, my garden, music (I play violin in the Clevedon Music Ensemble and have recently started a writing collaboration with a well-known local musician) and previously amateur operatics! In a broader sense, I am an active campaigner for social justice, equality and inclusion and also passionate about "green issues". Transition Clevedon were the first group I joined when I arrived in Clevedon and we've enjoyed picking cider apples from the community orchard as a family and look forward to many more community activities in the future. I was elected on the back of my stated commitment to local community, which was a primary reason for moving to Clevedon, and environmental causes - where I feel that Clevedon can become a regional leader. We hope as a family to be able to join in with supporting our community in all it's guises - and I personally look forward to serving your interests now and in the future."
