Councillor for Bathavon North, Cabinet Member for Children's Services
Kevin Guy has experience in local politics, having served as a councillor in Telford and Wrekin, as well as serving as their mayor in 2012-2013. Kevin understands how important local resident’s voices are, and wants to repay the good will by using his experience to ensure that the council listens to locals. A first step in Kevin’s work would be to see that genuine negotiations take place to transfer council land on the meadows to the National Trust, where it can be protected in perpetuity. Kevin is also interested in bettering the public transport system in the Bathavon North area. Following the successful campaign to save Bathampton Meadows, Kevin married local farmer Steve Horler in a marquee on New Leaf Farm last summer; something that would not have been possible without community support. Prior to being involved in politics, Kevin served in the Royal Navy for eight years, including a period working for NATO naval Intelligence. Kevin studied international politics, social and economic history at the University of Wales, where he currently works a college lecturer and course leader.
