Richard Graham’s first priority when elected was to sort a new Gloucester Academy and in October 2013 Richard opened the brand new secondary school.
Richard was the second MP to take on his own apprentice, has organised 10 Jobs Fairs, helped organise 3 Apprenticeship/Skills Fairs and helped create the first Glosterpreneur Seminar entrepreneurs. He created the Gloucester History Festival, plays cricket for Gloucester City Winget CC, volunteers annually for the Gloucestershire Royal Hospital, is Patron of the Discover de Crypt project and enabled 2,000 residents to visit the former Gloucester Prison for the first time in 2013.
Richard also pledged to regenerate the long abandoned Railway Triangle area, championing a business solution which has returned contaminated brown field land area to productive use. His next major vision is the regeneration of the Lower Blackfriars area of the city centre, combined with planned improvements to the bus station and Kings Sq, this should make a real difference to residents and tourists.
