Meet the Candidate… Highpoint Ward
Born and bred in Frome, I was named after the devastating hurricane Andrew of 1992. I did all of my schooling here – starting in Hayesdown, moving to Selwood, and finally Frome College.
While in Frome College I was very active in the media department, and a love of music took over – I began my drumming career in the “silver bugles” cadet band playing the snare drum!
I have played in various Rock / Hardcore Punk acts and have been fortunate enough to tour the UK, Europe and America doing so. I have also hosted a handful of shows on Frome FM, most notably “Velocity Rock” which was syndicated to numerous other stations around the world.
For the past year I have loved being Frome’s first Punk Rock Major, and doing what I can to represent, support and champion everything Frome as we make this transition out of the pandemic.
