Posted on 25th Jun 2019 by Beth Miller in Campaigning

This is one of the main reasons I got into ‘politics’. No matter someone’s circumstances they should have the opportunities, support and encouragement to achieve their aspirations.

Local schools let down by this Government

Posted on 28th May 2019 by Beth Miller in Campaigning

Schools in this area are facing a choice between closing early or making teachers redundant due to cuts. Teachers and Heads are being put in an unfair and impossible position by cuts from the Conservative Government and voted through by our own MP.

International Worker’s Memorial Day 2019

Posted on 28th Apr 2019 by Beth Miller in Campaigning

Today is International Worker’s Memorial Day. We came together yesterday at the Corby Cube to commemorate those killed and injured in the workplace.

Affected by Universal Credit?

Posted on 12th Apr 2019 by Beth Miller in Campaigning, Visits
