Your candidates Andrew Vaney and Cllr. Jos Clark

About The Candidates

Cllr. Jos Clark

I have lived in Brislington for 18 years, brought up in Keynsham. Went to Bristol University, worked as a qualified social worker. I have been a councillor for 12 years, I have been in the cabinet, and am currently the Lord Mayor of Bristol.


Andrew Vaney

For several years I have been working hard with my ward colleague, Cllr. Jos Clark, on behalf of the people of Brislington.

We have a record of success, including campaigning to save Jubilee Pool, preventing the closure of Wick Road Library, opposing the council’s destructive Callington Road Link, setting up community groups SPRING and BRIZ, organising local community events, bidding for money for environmental improvements, and so much more.

Arnos Vale Under Threat

Living in Brislington, we are so lucky to have the beautiful Arnos Vale Cemetery on our doorstep. With its 45 acres of trees, wildflowers, open spaces, classical architecture and more than 300,000 people who are buried or remembered there, from much-loved members of ordinary Bristol families to those who changed the world or sacrificed their lives in war, it is a great place to visit. 
Jos said, ‘Four years ago, I was asked to become a trustee of the cemetery and to be honest, I jumped at the chance. Like many people in the area, I have fond memories of time spent wandering around, looking at the graves and enjoying the calm surroundings. When my son was small, we would go into the cemetery and have ‘adventures’ because at that time the place was unloved and quite neglected’
Jos and Andrew witnessed some of the anti-social behaviour firsthand on a tour of the site with cemetery staff.

Local pharmacies at risk of closure

We recently announced that our local Lloyd’s Pharmacy on Sandy Park Road would be closing permanently at the end of October, 2020. Many people got in touch with us to see if anything could be done. Jos initially contacted the pharmacy chain to see if there was any chance they might reverse their decision. She also spoke to the local GP practice and the Avon Pharmaceutical Service Negotiating Committee. What she discovered was quite concerning. 

Many local pharmacies are likely to close down.

The silent public health emergency: Why air quality needs to be a priority for Bristol

The Brislington West Lib Dem view on Air Pollution

Air pollution isn’t new. However, only in recent decades has the scale of this problem become fully understood. The statistics are staggering: in 2016 the World Health Organisation found that air pollution was responsible for 4.2 million deaths. Closer to home, a 2017 study concluded that air pollution in Bristol can be linked to around 300 premature deaths each year.
