Sidmouth Town

Frances Newth Tel:01395 577395

Dear Resident of Sidmouth please may I ask for your support in the coming election. I am currently your Town and District Councillor. I can relate to hard working local families and senior citizens who struggle to pay increases in essentials. It is for this reason I will fight to keep Council Tax as low as possible. I care passionately about Sidmouth and its future and the need to retain the appeal of Sidmouth to visitors. We must keep the vitality of our shops, hotels, guest houses and businesses thriving to maintain prosperity for our beautiful Town. I will endeavour to reflect all aspects for the benefit of everyone in the community. I will continue to work hard and be accessible. It would be a privilege for me to serve you again as your Conservative District Councillor. Yours sincerely, Frances
