Cllr Tim Swinyard

Having grown up in the ward, I bought my first (and current) house in Grange Park as I have always loved the area and it’s a short walk from Lydiard. I have worked in the community for many years, even speaking at an appeal against houses built by Lydiard long before I was involved in politics. I am also a trustee with the Freshbrook Community Centre and for Dressability and I am always looking to help local groups and charities. I believe Lydiard and Freshbrook is an incredible place to live and I will always work hard to help maintain and improve the whole ward.

Biography coming soon.


Cllr Caryl Sydney-Smith

I have lived in West Swindon for over thirty years with my sons, Andrew and Tim Swinyard. I am a regular dog walker in Lydiard Park, and want to continue to improve the conditions for my neighbours and would be happy to hear from them as to what improvements they would want.

I worked at the Phoenix Surgery for 12 years as the Practice Manager and Nurse, and as a Practice nurse in West Swindon.

I believe that we should support the local police with their excellent work in the community.
