Richard Ackroyd

I’m a secondary school teacher and I’ve lived in Frome for 15 years. I am currently involved in helping to maintain the local SUSTRANS cycle route and the development of the new Missing Link project. I am also an active member of the Friends of Somerset River Frome, the Tunnels project and Frome Ukulele Club.
If I am lucky enough to become an elected representative I will campaign for better sports provision, more youth oriented facilities, safer roads and more integrated transport, sensible planning policies and an end to the outrageous fly tipping problems which currently blight the edges of town.

I’m for Frome

I’ve lived in Somerset for twenty years and moved to Frome two years ago. I love being able to walk into town to get a cuppa, shop, listen to music and go to the pictures!

I have a dog and feel passionate about the importance of green spaces and of the vital role of planning in balancing the need for open space, housing, shops and other businesses.

I’m a scientist by background, and work variously as a business consultant, company director and lecturer. I’ve also been chair of a charity focusing on well-being for disadvantaged groups in East London and been a voluntary social worker here in Frome. I’m keen to stand up for Frome’s agenda with the District Council and hope my business skills can be used to focus on social inclusion and growth of jobs and business opportunities.

My family and I were all born and raised in Frome, apart from my 84 year old Mother who has only been here for 60 years! This gives me an excellent insight into the towns requirements and expectations. My 4 years as a town councillor and year as Mayor have served to strengthen that knowledge and my love of the town.
I would very much like to see a sensible resolution to the Saxonvale development, without the shouting. If this opportunity, like the Singers site, is lost to housing, we do not deserve to be in office.

I’m for Frome
