Hi. I'm Joel Herron
Bideford North - Town & District
I am a teacher, currently working part-time across North Devon, which enables me to run a small café in Bideford Pannier Market. As such, I am committed to exploring employment opportunities for young people in the area.
Since moving to Bideford three years ago, I have become passionate about the environment and communities in which we live and work and see it as our duty to act creatively and resourcefully to keep Torridge green, beautiful and bountiful for generations to come.
I promise to listen, be open to all opinions and honour our common interests. Thinking outside the box, we can make Torridge an exciting, forward-looking place that functions in an exciting, democratic way.
