Chard candidates for South Somerset County Council

The future is looking bright in our area. Chard has already unveiled its candidates for the County Council elections with Tim Eggins and Serena Wootton standing in the South and North divisions respectively. They are not strangers to the election race as both stood for Chard Town Council in 2019, Serena winning her seat, Tim missing out by only 11 votes. They pulled in nearly 500 votes between them even though the Chard Green Party group had only formed the year before.

Note that in 2017 we did not stand a Green candidate, but the interest in the Green Party at this southernmost tip of South Somerset means that we can expect a good showing at the polling booths - your vote will not be wasted!
