Jacqui was educated in Bridgwater and has lived in town for 32 years, 10 of those years in Polden Street. She was a local Secondary School Geography teacher and is now a Ceremonies Officer for the Registration Service. Her two children also attended Eastover Primary school. Jacqui is especially interested in the environment and is currently the Chair for the Friends of the Meads Eco Park.

Jacqui says, “Families are struggling with the cost-of-living crisis, with housing issues and poor infrastructure. Eastover is a vibrant place to live and  we must choose to take care of the communal spaces and landscape. Eastover Park is a great example of a multi-use outdoor area and I fully support Bridgwater Town Council’s vision to take on parks and open spaces. I believe this will improve the quality of life for those in the area. Eastover is Somerset’s most multicultural area; this thriving and diverse community is something we can all benefit from.”


Eastover is part of BRIDGWATER NORTH and CENTRAL for the new Somerset Unitary Council. The 2 Labour councillors for this division are HILARY BRUCE and LEIGH REDMAN
