Since being elected as your local MP in May 2015, I’ve been a strong voice for our area in Parliament, and an active, hardworking local MP in our community—all year round, not just at election time.
My 3 local priorities are:
- A strong local economy: I’ve organised Jobs & Apprenticeships Fairs every year since 2016 which thousands of local residents have attended. I’ve also secured £250,000 of government money to help local people start or grow a business, and I’ve launched the Havant Constituency Small Business Awards to celebrate our best local firms.
- Successful local schools & colleges: I’ve visited almost every primary school and secondary school & college, and launched regular meetings of local secondary headteachers to share ideas and keep in touch with local education issues, and a reading challenge to get more young people reading.
- Vibrant communities: I’ve helped hundreds of residents with individual problems, engaged with local issues, attended hundreds of community events, and met many local businesses, charities, community groups and voluntary organisations.
I live in Havant, and my office is at Langstone Technology Park. Born & raised in Yorkshire, my family ran a high street shop for 20 years. I was the first person in my family to finish schooling and attend university (reading law at Cambridge), before working in the City of London and starting my own small business. I’m a longstanding Royal British Legion volunteer and former school governor.
