Supporting Community Radio Stations

I have made representations to the Government in support of local community radio stations.  Community radio is invaluable to community life and has played an important role during the Coronavirus pandemic by sharing information and offers of help and support to local residents.  

Aviation Sector Employment

I have supported the application for a debate in the Commons regarding redundancies in the aviation sector. In response to the large number of Wealden residents employed by British Airways who have contacted me, I have publicly thrown her weight behind Transport Select Committee Chair MP Huw Merr

The Coronavirus (Covid-19) Situation

On the 11th March, the World Health Organisation declared the Covid-19 disease a pandemic.

So far, there have been reported cases in more than 160 countries and territories around the world.

Maritime Safety Week

Maritime Safety Week, which starts today, will focus on a number of different elements of safety on the water, including fishing vessel safety.

Supporting Wealden Pubs

Pubs are the heart of our Wealden communities. I am dedicated to ensuring that the 78 pubs and 8 breweries which are based in Wealden will continue to thrive. Pubs and breweries contribute a huge amount locally, both to the economy and to the social life of the community.

Backing Our High Streets

Wealden is home to the towns of Uckfield, Hailsham, Crowborough and the surrounding villages of Forest Row, Mayfield, Wadhurst, Rotherfield, all of which are home to community run high streets, the beating hearts of our towns and villages.

Championing Local Farmers

Wealden is a beautiful place, with rolling countryside, stunning forests and energetic towns. Wealden is also home to many amazing farms, which are the lifeblood of rural life. I want to build a Rural Powerhouse, one known for its thriving small businesses, including its farms and vineyards, as for the beauty of its countryside.
