Dr Dan was recently delighted to visit Cotton village hall for the regular local coffee morning, where he spent time chatting to residents about a number of issues, such as the leading role he has played in getting £12 million of Government money for the rollout of faster broadband in rural areas of Suffolk, his work in winning £1.5 million for the refurbishment of Hartismere Community Hospital, and the need to provide more care in the community to look after our growing ageing population in Suffolk.
Since being elected as MP for Central Suffolk and North Ipswich in 2010 Dan’s main priority has been to meet with residents from all parts of his constituency in order to hear their views and help with their problems as well as update them on the work he is doing in both in the constituency and in Westminster.
Dan always enjoys the opportunity to talk to residents and would like to extend his thanks to Cotton Parish Council chairman Valerie Couldridge for inviting him to the coffee morning. All of the proceeds raised during these mornings go towards maintaining the village church and supporting other local charities, and Dan very much looks forward to visiting again.
