About Edward

Married to Nicola and I have two daughters, Emily 16 and Felicity 11. My hobbies include, walking Bob our Cocker Spaniel and cycling. As a child growing up in Victoria Road, I used to play in the Hilperton gap fields, which are apparently now being considered for housing. I often walk my dog in these fields and wish to continue to do so...

I currently represent Trowbridge Adcroft Ward as both a Town and Wiltshire Councillor. It has taken a little while to be elected, as I first stood for election in Adcroft ward over 25 years ago.

I am 48 years old, married to Nicola and I have two daughters, Emily 19, now studying at Plymouth University and Felicity 14 studying for her GCSEs. My hobbies include, walking Bob our Cocker Spaniel and cycling.

I run the family business suppling school uniforms with shops in five towns, including the one in Trowbridge opened by my Grandfather over sixty years ago. I also operate an embroidery and printing business on the White Horse Business Park in Trowbridge.

I care passionately about Trowbridge and can remember it being a thriving market town with a buoyant town centre. It distresses me to see how ran down the centre has become. I feel it was a mistake to allow the development of Spitfire Park – with no parking charges. These shops would serve Trowbridge better in the centre.

I have always had active involvement within the Town, having organised the Carnival Procession, Soap Box Derby and been a past Chairman of Trowbridge Round Table.

I am honest and I care for the people and Town of Trowbridge and would do my best to serve them both.
