Supporting rural communities

I work to support rural communities and businesses.  As the MP for the constituency of Tamworth I also represent the surrounding villages so helping rural areas thrive is high on my agenda. 

I live in Shenstone, one of the larger local villages and access to post offices and public transport, maintaining quality education for all ages, speeding on the main roads and HGVs passing through residential areas are concerns of mine.  I have also been working closely with the Police and NFU to tackle rural crime on houses, farms, cars and churches.

Whether it is helping fundraise for community events, addressing rural broadband and mobile issues or fighting for better transport and access to services I will work with both local and national bodies to protect and enhance our rural communities.
