MEET THE CANDIDATES: Adam Triggs (Conservative)
ADAM Triggs stands for Fenland District Council for the first time in March West, as a Conservative candidate.
THIS is the first time Adam has stood as a district councillor. He first moved to March when he was five.
While growing up in March, Adam studied Business Studies and Leisure Management at Peterborough Regional College and played rugby and hockey for the town.
In his teenage years he worked as a lifeguard at the George Campbell pool. At 19 Adam moved away.
While away he met and married Samantha and after 10 years they decided to move back home to March to raise their children. All three children attend local schools.
