Radstock Action Group meeting with Glyn Ford MEP

Local organisations and individuals find out from our member of the European Parliament how Europe can help Radstock regeneration.

Can Europe make a difference to the future of Radstock?

If you have a question you'd like answered in connection with stopping the road, getting affordable housing for Radstock, protecting the natural environment or the centre of the town, then come along to this meeting.

Glyn Ford is the South West England member of the European Parliament. Come and talk to him about why Radstock is such a great place and why it deserves real, imaginative regeneration.
