Local campaigner, George Simmonds is standing for Wiltshire and Chippenham Council in Cepen Park & Hunters Moon in this year's local election.
George moved to Wiltshire for love of its green spaces and has been doing what he can to protect them ever since. Having spent years working in ethical and sustainable investment, he understands the difference individuals can
make when their communities empower them.
Litter, fly-tipping, endless development: these have become part of everyday life here in Wiltshire, but George says it does not have to be this way. With focused and progressive leadership, towns like Chippenham can welcome prosperity without sacrificing the countryside that makes them feel like home.
