About Louisa:

Louisa was born and raised in Barnstaple. She is married to Keith and they have two sons and currently live in Lower Newport.

With a degree and past career in librarianship, she now owns and runs a childcare business and is Vice-Chair of Governors at Newport Community School Primary Academy. Pretty techie, a keen cook and photographer, she still finds time to campaign for Newport residents.

She is a Trustee of the North Devon Forum for Autistic Spectrum Conditions and ADHD and Barnstaple Youth House, a campaigner for Save Our Hospital Services (SOHS) and Stop Underfunding Devon's Schools (SUDS) and is a member of the One Barnstaple Steering Group.

She said: "I have thoroughly enjoyed being a Barnstaple Central Town Councillor for the last two years and have risen to the challenges it brings. I have an excellent attendance record for council meetings and have participated fully with all that they have brought. I have become involved with many related community groups and campaigns including North Devon Voluntary Services, Barnstaple Youth House, Save Our Hospital Services (SOHS), Stop Underfunding Devon’s Schools (SUDS), Pannier Market Traders’ Committee, Pannier Market Cross Party Working Group and One Barnstaple."

"I am very proud to be standing with Cllr Caroline Leaver in Newport. With her proven track record of getting things done, together we will make an even more effective team. We’ve already been working hard for months, campaigning and petitioning on different issues."
