Councillor Jones said, “By becoming a town councillor I hope to be able to have a larger impact on the local community and help improve our beautiful town for everyone who lives or visits the area.
The way the council have improved the lake pleasure grounds over the past few years has been an inspiration. Taking it from being a lovely but basic town park to a highly visited venue that is capable of hosting many different events and activities which I have had the pleasure of attending. I believe in a community first approach and hope to represent the people of Warminster to the best of my ability.”
Mayor, Councillor Chris Robbins, thanked all the candidates for their time and presentations, adding that with town council elections due in May 2025 there was the opportunity for them and other local residents to put themselves forward in the future
