Prospective Town Council Candidate for Ware Trinity
Thomas is the joint owner of the French & Day Delicatessen on Ware High Street, along with his husband. Both have lived in Ware for over 9 years. Thomas is originally from Hertford and most of his family are still local.
Thomas has been involved with the East Herts Green Party for a number of years, assisting in the 2019 Local and General Election campaigns as the manager of social media and printed communications. He can often be seen wielding a litter picking grabber and contributing to community activities to look after our green spaces.
A keen interest in food, drink and travelling led to the opening of the deli in Ware where Thomas keenly supports local producers and showcases low-food-mile products from across the region.
As a local resident and small business owner, I am keen to see Ware prosper as a community; both economically, with a strong and diverse high street, but also in terms of the health and happiness of its residents.
The unprecedented events of the last year have seen a break with ‘business as usual’ and I believe there is an opportunity for Ware to undergo a renaissance as a community that cherishes its independent businesses, boasts a vibrant and diverse night-time and cultural economy and that prioritises the wellbeing of its residents through the active promotion of sustainable policies.
