Corby Carnival and Highland Gathering 2019

Posted on 13th Jul 2019 by Beth Miller in News

Fun day at the carnival and highland gathering, followed by a lovely brie and cranberry toastie (😍) at the Old Village tea cottage! Took Harry but think it was all a bit much for him - he was one tired dog!

Our MP votes against the rights of women in Northern Ireland

Posted on 9th Jul 2019 by Beth Miller in Campaigning, News

Today, MPs voted resoundingly to extend same-sex marriage and access to abortion to Northern Ireland, bringing NI into line with the rights we all have here in the rest of the U.K and in the Republic of Ireland.  Unfortunately our own MP was one of just 99 who chose to vote against Stella Creasy’s amendment, therefore seeking to stop the right of women to choose.

Enjoyed the sun this weekend with more campaigning in Irthlingborough followed by Tannerfest, just outside of the constituency in Loddington.

Tribute to Mary Butcher

Posted on 5th Jul 2019 by Beth Miller in News

Very sad news about Mary. She was a lovely woman, spoke her mind, wore her heart on her sleeve and was a real voice of reason at some tense Labour meetings over the years. She also had the biggest smile, the most brilliant, fully invested laugh and great sense of fashion - she had amazing jacket, handbag and jewellery combos! I was proud to call her a friend. ‬

School cuts campaign update

Posted on 3rd Jul 2019 by Beth Miller in Campaigning

Our campaigning on school cuts is having an impact. Headteachers have today called for a meeting with Northamptonshire’s MPs so they can stress the negative impact cuts are having on their schools.

The importance of social mobility

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.

PM's response on school cuts is not good enough

Posted on 27th May 2019 by Beth Miller in Campaigning

The Prime Minister has no response to the challenge that schools are having to close early to save cash as a result of Tory cuts.

Help support our police

Posted on 19th May 2019 by Beth Miller in Campaigning

It cannot be right that the police now take 67% and 40% longer to reach ‘urgent’ issues in Northamptonshire's urban and rural areas.

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. I was staggered to hear that each year more people die in the workplace than in war. The theme for this year is ‘Dangerous Substances - get them out of the workplace’.

Affected by Universal Credit?

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

Around 6,000 people from this constituency are in the same boat.

The way Universal Credit has been implemented/is being implemented is unfair and cruel, leaving many without any financial support for weeks on end.
