ONE of the candidates shortlisted by the Conservatives in Fareham says there are big shoes to fill.

Jeremy Quin, one of the quartet in the running after MP Mark Hoban decided not to contest the upcoming General Election, has spoken of the task which faces the final candidate.

Mr Quin, of Buckingham, said: ‘They are big shoes to fill, for whichever of us is lucky enough to be selected. I have spoken to a lot of people over the last few weeks, getting to know Fareham.

‘I hope I have got something to offer, to be able to help people in this area, as I have a passion to ensure that Fareham becomes an even better place.

‘It is hugely exciting. I am enjoying learning more and more about the area. What I am particularly excited by in Fareham is the dynamism of the place.’

Members of the Conservative party will take a vote on Saturday to select the final candidate after interviewing each of the candidates.
