I am a self-employed translator and live in Crabtree Close. When I moved to Dundry in 2007, I immediately liked this lively and welcoming community and wanted to get involved. In 2009, I joined the Parish Council and was elected Chair in 2010.

Simon Fiddian (Vice Chair) Ghajn Tuffieha, Bridgwater Road, Dundry, BS41 8JP
Tel: 07786110068 (mobile) simon.fiddian@onetel.net

I moved from Portsmouth to Dundry about 12 years ago and I live on the A38 Bridgwater Road. I was employed by the Ministry of Defence as a NATO Senior Project Manager, and took early retirement in 2009. I am also a founder member of the Dundry Residents Action Group (DRAG) which formed in August 2008 and whose main aim is to protect the Green Belt including our lovely wildlife and countryside. I decided to put my name forward to join the Dundry Parish Council as I would like to address, to the Council, the concerns of the Dundry Residents in my area and to assist the Council in any way I can for the good of the community.

At the age of 25 I am the youngest of the parish counsellors. I moved to the village over a year ago with my husband and have since had the pleasure to meet many of the locals. I joined the parish council as I wanted to provide a voice for the younger people within the community and also provide a fresh set of eyes and younger outlook on matters that affect the parish. I am a very approachable person and often attend local events, however if you would prefer to contact me directly feel free to contact me.

My partner, Millena, and I moved to East Dundry in October 2015, and immediately fell in love with the area. Soon after, I decided that I wanted to involve myself in the wider community and put my skills and knowledge to good use. I saw an advert for a vacancy on the council, and was then co-opted as one of the 10 Councillors. My undergraduate is in Marketing, and I hold a MSc degree in Responsible Tourism Management. I have traveled extensively for work, including Sierra Leone, the Congo, Haiti and Brazil. Currently, I work as a Programme Manager for a charity, based in Bristol, specialising in sustainable tourism development on a global scale. As a Councillor, I am interested in sustainability, conservation and social welfare.
