Joel Hirst lives in Odd Down where he loves the open spaces, heritage and great access to Bath. He has worked across North East Somerset and in St Martins Hospital as a qualified pharmacist. Joel has overseen investment into walking/cycling infrastructure, the approval of construction of new council houses in his ward and is proud of the council's efforts on the climate emergency agenda.

Joel is motivated by the Lib Dems championing a ‘fair, free and open society’ which has shaped his politics. He loves meeting people and trying to get their problems addressed. He would like to create a safe off road walking and cycling path that would travel from Odd Down to Combe Down, Ralph Allan and the University. He would like education to be available from the former Culverhay site and he hopes that St Martins heritage can be better celebrated and the chapel converted into a community resource. He would also like investment into Odd Down playing fields and an improved bus service for residents. Joel lives with his wife and two grown children and loves to travel; play and listen to music and enjoys cooking.
