I live locally and am a dedicated and hard working constituency MP. Please feel free to get in touch with me if I can help you in any way. Click here if you would like to receive my newsletter about what I am doing on your behalf on important local issues. Your details will not be passed to any third parties and you are free to cancel the updates at any time.
