Huge congratulations to Tim for all of his hard work and those of all the volunteers who supported him throughout the campaign! 


My name is Tim Webster and I am standing to be your Conservative Councillor for the Melton Dorian Ward because I believe in serving our community. I am Melton born and bred and have a huge enthusiasm and interest in anything that makes our town a better place. I have been a Trustee for the Melton Mowbray Town Estate for over 10 years and am on the board of a number of local charities. This is why people have told me that I should put myself forward for this election.

As a Trustee of a local charity, I have seen first-hand the isolation and loneliness that has been caused by the pandemic. As we have been helping more local people over the past year, who have fallen on difficult times. This is why I will be working to help combat isolation and loneliness in our community.

I pledge to:  

  • Work with our MP, Alicia Kearns and our Police and Crime Commissioner to tackle anti-social behaviour and drug related activity
  • Boost our tourism by promoting our town as a destination, providing tour guides and championing local produce

Vote for Tim Webster on Thursday 11th November.
