Ventnor hotelier wants to be an East Wight MP

David Groocock

A surprise late addition to the line-up of election candidates in the East Wight is David Groocock, a Ventnor hotelier, who is standing as an Independent under the slogan of ‘Get Island Roads Moving’.

Although a major concern is the continued closure of Ventnor’s Leeson Road, he has policies on other issues including improving pay for carers and teachers and making sure the Island plan works for Island people.

Mr Groocock will be at the IW Observer/Island Echo hustings on June 19.
