Carolyn Guillot, candidate for Abingdon South
I first started being aware of the importance of conservation and environmental issues in the 70's when I lived in Snowdonia in North Wales and worked for the founder of the Snowdonia Society, a charity fighting to protect the area. We worked alongside Friends of the Earth. I then did an agricultural course, had my own smallholding and became convinced that where possible organic was best. Since then I have had my own family, and have worked in such areas as mental health, and supported charities which help the homeless and prisoners. I worked in administration for many years and am particularly interested in women's issues. I am a member of the Soil Association and Amnesty International. I feel Abingdon South needs development particularly in the area of schooling, traffic congestion
and amenities for the young and protection from further housing development unless the above issues are resolved.
