Love Is Love 💕

Posted on 28th Oct 2018 by Beth Miller in Campaigning

Some people say politicians are all the same. I don’t think that’s the case in this constituency. The MP and I have very different views on major issues from fox hunting to the NHS and environmental protections.

Posted on 18th Oct 2018 by Beth Miller in Campaigning

Launching Street Watch! Get Involved!

Posted on 13th Oct 2018 by Beth Miller in Campaigning

Everyone deserves to feel safe in their homes and communities. It's something I feel really strongly about.  Street Watch is 'a bit like Neighbourhood Watch but on legs.' It's groups of volunteers, passionate about their area supporting PCSOs and community officers. It's a community patrol initiative that helps you make a difference where you live, just walking around your neighbourhood, which can really help.
