Mr Holger Laux (Chair)

Tel:  07740191772 (mobile)


I am a self-employed translator and live in Crabtree Close. When I moved to Dundry in 2007, I immediately liked this lively and welcoming community and wanted to get involved. In 2009, I joined the Parish Council and was elected Chair in 2010.

Simon Fiddian (Vice Chair) Ghajn Tuffieha, Bridgwater Road, Dundry, BS41 8JP
Tel: 07786110068 (mobile)

I moved from Portsmouth to Dundry about 12 years ago and I live on the A38 Bridgwater Road. I was employed by the Ministry of Defence as a NATO Senior Project Manager, and took early retirement in 2009. I am also a founder member of the Dundry Residents Action Group (DRAG) which formed in August 2008 and whose main aim is to protect the Green Belt including our lovely wildlife and countryside. I decided to put my name forward to join the Dundry Parish Council as I would like to address, to the Council, the concerns of the Dundry Residents in my area and to assist the Council in any way I can for the good of the community.

Amanda Scott



At the age of 25 I am the youngest of the parish counsellors. I moved to the village over a year ago with my husband and have since had the pleasure to meet many of the locals. I joined the parish council as I wanted to provide a voice for the younger people within the community and also provide a fresh set of eyes and younger outlook on matters that affect the parish. I am a very approachable person and often attend local events, however if you would prefer to contact me directly feel free to contact me.
