I had a great visit this week to the Intake Wives’ Group. The group’s been meeting for 56 years, and arranges trips and meals for local women as well as inviting speakers on all sorts of topics.

They asked me to speak for a few minutes about my motivation to be an MP, some of the issues that most concern me, as well as the day to day business of what I do in Parliament and how I tie that into my work in the constituency. We also had the chance to discuss Brexit, the ongoing problems with off-road bikes and Streets Ahead.

Visiting community groups like the Intake Wives Group is one of the best ways to stay in touch with what people in the constituency care about and gives me ideas for campaigns and issues to raise in Parliament. If you’d like to invite me to visit any local groups, please get in touch.
