Happy New Year

As we leave 2016, perhaps the most unpredictable year in living memory, my New Year’s resolution is to make no more predictions.

#IAMWHOLE Campaign

On Monday the NHS, with backing from the YMCA, launched their new campaign #IAMWHOLE which reaches out to young people with mental health problems. The launch coincided with World Mental Health day, a day for global mental health education, awareness and advocacy.

Team GB Olympic Success

What a summer of sport we have enjoyed, and what a remarkable transformation Britain’s Olympic team has had over the last two decades.

EU Referendum

Britain has made a clear decision to leave the European Union and the government's job now is to carry out the will of the British people. I understand the Prime Minister's decision to resign though I profoundly regret it. He made the brave and right decision to give the electorate a say directly on the question of our membership of the EU. We should now come together to build a future outside it.   

Celebrating National Apprenticeship Week

Apprenticeships are thriving in England and National Apprenticeship Week which took place between 14th to 18th March celebrated the positive impact that both apprenticeships and traineeships have on individuals, businesses and the wider economy. 

Jeremy becomes Apprenticeship Champion

Local MP Jeremy Wright is backing apprenticeships in Kenilworth and Southam, and has joined a campaign to spread awareness of the opportunities that apprenticeships offer to both young people and businesses.

Three reasons to be cheerful

As we pack away the Christmas decorations and begin to settle in to the New Year, we may all struggle to find reasons to be cheerful, so I offer three for those of us living in South Warwickshire.

New Year Message

It’s a New Year, which for many people means it’s a time for make resolutions and a time to look forward to the year ahead. 

Christmas Message

Christmas is a magical time, especially for children – a time filled with beautifully decorated trees sparkling with coloured lights, presents and thoughts of Santa’s sleigh rushing through the sky led by his loyal reindeer. It is also a time that brings people together – singing carols, decorating trees and enjoying the company family and friends.

Supporting small businesses

Most people in this country own a small business, work for a small business or know somebody who does and the small businesses in my constituency of Kenilworth and Southam are the lifeblood of our local economy. I want to do all I can to support them and I hope you will join me in doing this on Small Business Saturday which takes place on 5th December.
