Brooke Weston School Visit

Posted on 5th Dec 2019 in Campaigning, News

I had a lovely time at my old school today talking to Sixth Form. It was great to see so many young people interested in politics and energised to vote and have their say on our future. Lots of topical questions on the future of local government, Brexit and how I'd deliver for our community. 

Thanks for making me feel so welcome and best of luck for the future!
