Nick Wellstead

Stapehill Ward

I am a 38 year old self-employed builder in the Ferndown/Wimborne area. I have many interests including playing bass in a rock band that plays in local gigs around the area. I am also a keen cricket follower and I have been a steward at the Rose Bowl for Hampshire Cricket since 2002. I played football in a local team for a while and I play tennis. I went to the Arts Institute in Bournemouth and did a Foundation Degree at Bournemouth University studying a subject called Creative Digital Arts. I am also a very keen photographer and I love History.

I moved to Stapehill from Blandford, where I grew up and went to school. I have been the UKIP Chairman for Poole since 2010 and I was also a parliamentary candidate for that area in 2010. I am very keen on politics and I wish to help the local area in any way that I can. I am also very keen to learn!

I hope the town will build a new BMX site for the youth of the area.

Lawrence Wilson

Ameysford Ward - Deputy Mayor

I was born in Poole and have lived in Ferndown all my life. Whilst growing up I attended all three Ferndown schools and was a member of several local activity groups, such as the Cubs and the ATC.

I have done a variety of jobs over the years, including market trading, working in a restaurant, warehousing, office work and delivery driving. However, I mainly come from a retail management background, but I now work for the Civil Service. I’ve worked part time for minimum wage, and I’ve been a manager, so I feel with my varied work experience I have gained a lot of real-life knowledge, something that often seems to be missing from national politics, sadly.

I’ve been a Town Councillor for Ferndown since being co-opted in 2015 and I have served on both the Planning and Environment Committees. I was elected in the 2019 local elections when the residents of Ameysford Ward gave me the honour of representing them when they voted for me. I will put the concerns and wishes of the local residents at the top of my agenda.

During my time as a Councillor I have been involved with many projects, but protecting our environment and wildlife is a particular passion of mine. I’ve served on the Ecological Working Party since 2018 and I have helped plant trees and installed many bat and bird boxes around the town. I am passionate about protecting our green belt and will fight against any development on these sites.

Councillor Wilson was voted Deputy Mayor with effect from 26th August 2020.

In my spare time I enjoy travelling, anything to do with history, nature and the outdoors, including long walks with my girlfriend and our dogs. I also love socialising and pubs!

Julie Robinson

Links Ward

Julie was born in Bedfordshire and moved to this area in 1986 when she bought a newsagent in Charminster, commuting daily from her home in Ferndown. The business ran successfully for four years after which she took time out to raise a family. After canvassing only her local area, she was elected to the Town Council in May 2011, her ambition to get the local community to be more involved, to have their say and to be listened to.

She served on the Heatherlands Community Association for 8 years and held the role of Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator for 12 years. She currently works closely with Synergy Housing and is Chairman of the panel which covers the whole of Ferndown including the Heatherlands Estate. She became a Town Councillor in 2011 and was re-elected in May 2015 and elected as a District Councillor for Ferndown Central Ward.

Julie is also a staunch supporter of providing affordable and social housing. She hopes to encourage the town’s small businesses and encourage others to come to the area.
