Memorial Service for Trowbridge Martyr Thomas Helliker 22nd March
Labour Party Members, including Town Councillor Phoebe Kemp and Westbury Councillor Mike Kettlety, pay their respects at a moving memorial service for Trowbridge martyr Thomas Helliker at St James’ Church, Trowbridge on 22nd March 2018. Thomas was hanged on his 19th birthday March 22nd 1803. The sentence was following the burning down of mechanised mill, a crime he did not commit. He refused to clear his name by revealing the real culprits at the cost of his life.
Phoebe Kemp is the first Labour Councillor to be elected to the Trowbridge Town Council in over a decade.
In the first year as Councillor she has worked with the Town Development and Museum and Tourism Committees and has been working to change the council approaches to homelessness and rough sleeping.
As a Labour Town Councillor I hope to represent all members of the community equally, and make sure those whose voices are often ignored are heard. I am passionate about Trowbridge and its growth, and want to make sure it is a positive place for all it’s residents.”
