Hello, I'm Beth!
I am proud to be Labour's Candidate for Corby and East Northamptonshire, fighting for the community I call home.

Today we said ‘goodbye’ to Cllr Mary Butcher. Mary was a fantastic local champion and the turnout showed just how well respected, from across the political spectrum, Mary was. Lee did a brilliant eulogy - I have nothing but respect for the people who have the courage to speak at a loved ones funeral.
One thing that came across was Mary’s passion for fighting injustice and her determination. She was a strong voice for our community and while working at Asda became a well know local figure, raising thousands for charities.
It struck me as poignant that today also marks GMB Union’s ‘action day’ against the new contacts being pushed on Asda workers by what strikes me as the greediness of top dogs. I can imagine if Mary was still working there, she would be up in arms, standing up against this injustice.
