Sidmouth (South)

Hilary Nelson


“I have been proud to call Sidmouth home for the last 11 years. 

I qualified as a solicitor specialising in dispute resolution and have considerable experience in the voluntary sector, working until 2019 as the CEO of Citizens Advice East Devon.  

These are challenging times, and we need to work together for Sidmouth’s best interests: maintaining a strong community with opportunities for all to participate, protecting our unique local environment and retaining our local transport and public services.  

If elected, I would put the interests of the people of South Ward first, focussing on building sustainable community partnerships and supporting voluntary organisations and local businesses as we face the challenges and opportunities of the next few years.”
