Alison Melvin

I have enjoyed living in Frith End since 1997 and I’m keen to support the local community and help improve the quality of life across the parish. I’m a keen gardener and environmentalist, with particular interests in: reducing plastic consumption; cycling and walking; local food; and the ways in which the natural environment benefits human health and wellbeing. I’m a founder of the Binsted Eco Network.
