Yeovil healthcare worker Rebecca Haselgrove is campaigning to represent the people of College Ward on Yeovil Town Council. The by-election will be held on Thursday 19 August. Mother of two Ms Haselgrove (24) was educated at Milford School and Bucklers Mead Academy. She already has a strong record of multi-tasking. As well as working in the health sector and bringing up her two children, she is also studying for a
degree with the Open University. In her spare time, she fosters animals for a local rescue charity.
Ms Haselgrove said “Yeovil needs fresh young minds getting involved in local issues. The Town Council cannot afford to get stuck in a rut. As a councillor, I would work hard for everyone in College Ward and for Yeovil as a whole. I particularly want to engage younger people, and would want them to know that I would always do my best to help. My passions include working for better health facilities for patients and campaigning to end homelessness and for better quality housing. I am also very concerned about the problems of small businesses in Yeovil, who have had a very hard time of it. Most of all, I wants to ensure the people in Yeovil get the attention that they deserve when it comes to delivering good quality public services.”
Long-time Labour town councillor Terry Ledlie is backing Rebecca to join him in representing College Ward. Mr Ledlie said “Rebecca is an energetic and able candidate who really cares about people. I urge you to give her your vote on 19 August so that she can use her enthusiasm to represent you. Yeovil deserves a town council that will truly deliver for local people.”
