Happy Friday all! Here’s something to celebrate; we’re very pleased to be able to announce our next two candidates standing for Bradford on Avon Town Council at the local election in May.
Esther Gordon-Smith, a new addition to the team. Esther’s a chartered engineer and works on major infrastructure projects for Highways England. She understands the environmental legacy of public projects and how areas of government, legislation and communities can best work together.
She's a baker, singer, active member of her local church, and helps the Community Emergency Volunteers.
And Dave Garwood. Many of you will know Dave already, as he’s been a Town Councillor with Ideal Bradford for the last four years, following a busy career as a senior civil servant, business consultant and director of an international Non Government Organisation.
Dave's been the Mayor of the town, led on the Town Council's tourism strategy and chaired the Christmas Lights working group. He supports a couple of local radio stations, and he's looking forward to getting back to teaching IT skills in the library when the world returns to some kind of normal - whatever and whenever that may be…!
