Paul Turnpenny & Jim Loder
Paul Turnpenny works as a senior principal scientist at a local drug discovery firm, active in identifying treatments for infectious disease and neuro- degeneration.
Paul has campaigned on several local issues and is a long time member of the charity Action for Children.
“Tolerance and support towards other people is vital in a thriving community. I don’t want children growing up now, thinking the current divisiveness over Brexit is the norm”.
Paul will support community groups, and would like to see proper cycling and pedestrian infrastructure put in place for the town.
Jim Loder has lived in Didcot all his life, and has worked as a key scientist at Thames Valley Water for over 10 years.
Jim follows Didcot town football club, loves Tai Chi and would like to see improved leisure facilities for the town.
“After all the housing development, Didcot needs improved infrastructure, green spaces and somewhere for people to visit and enjoy themselves”.
