Residents attend 'meet the election candidates' session in Burnham

Residents were able to meet several of the candidates running in next month's County Council elections in Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge on Thursday night (April 18th).

Those standing in the Burnham North and Highbridge & Burnham South wards were invited to a 'meet the candidates evening' at Burnham's Princess Theatre where residents quizzed them on local and national topics.

The candidates standing in Burnham North are Peter Burridge-Clayton (Con), Leander Clarke (Lab), Tom Nichols (Lib Dem) and James Robertson (Green).

In Highbridge and Burnham South, those running are Helen Groves (Lib Dem), Ricky Holcombe (Lab), David Taylor (Green), Purple Watkins (Ind) and John Woodman (Con).

"This was a great opportunity for residents to meet the candidates and ask them questions about local issues and topics ahead of election day on May 2nd," said one of the organisers.

Polling stations will be open between 7am-10pm on Thursday May 2nd 2013.
