Martin Papworth

Martin says "I have lived and worked in the community of Broadway Ward, Warminster since 1996 when I moved here to become the National Trust's regional archaeological advisor. I am a Christian and active member of Christchurch, have a Bradley Road allotment and our three children went to Sambourne and Kingdown schools.

I believe that the council should be made up of a broad group of representatives rather than a dominant political party. We should fight to enable and equip local government to deliver for our diverse needs, encouraging each other, young and old, with the resources to provide for those in need, to discover new inspirations, to enable everyone to achieve their potential.
Our Environment is the key to our future. The Council must develop its policies to ensure that the creation of waste is minimised and processed sustainably. How is our recycling used and where does it go?
I represent the National Trust as chair of the Cranborne Chase AONB Landscape Partnership Board and work with local volunteers and environmental agencies to engage with and conserve the quality of the outdoors.
A personal local project (begun on furlough) has been to create a map of the archaeology of Battlesbury hillfort for MoD. Great to see the changing seasons from up there and to meet fellow residents similarly inspired by the setting of our community and to talk about the needs of our town".
