Activity Roundup

Respecting the referendum result

It has been a hectic 10 weeks in politics and Brexit has been the most dominant issue. It is the defining issue of our times to say the least. During this period I have been resolute in supporting our Prime Minister and Government to get Brexit done. We politicians promised to respect the outcome of the referendum result. Some have abandoned this. I have not and I will continue to keep my promise to the voters of Northampton South.

Supporting our local nurseries

Kathryn and Hayley from Blackthorn nursery are always a delight to meet. Their nursery is rated outstanding, but is always on the lookout for fresh funding as their budgets are extremely tight. I have been helping them look at possible opportunities. Pictured with local Councillor Andy Kilbride
