    It's time to demand better for Trowbridge. Our town has been ignored for far too long by the ruling Conservatives.

    Under them, our town centre has declined, our roads are a mess and our schools don't receive fair funding, so our children are disadvantaged.

    The Conservatives have cut our Police. They have abolished our Youth Service. Local, young families are struggling to find an affordable first home.
