Happy Easter

I wish you and your family a Happy Easter.

English Tourism Week 2019

This month I marked English Tourism Week with a visit to Kenilworth Castle. English Tourism Week is an annual celebration of English Tourism, which aims to raise the profile of the industry and celebrate the value and quality of tourism in England.

Notre-Dame Cathedral

I share the shock and sadness expressed by people around the world following the terrible fire at Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris.

Meeting with FSB

Good to catch up with Lee Osborne and Rich Bishop again to talk about the work of the Federation of Small Businesses.

Rotary Easter Challenge

Look out for these posters that appear in the 30 shops and outlets around Kenilworth taking part in the Rotary Easter Challenge. Entrants can buy an answer sheet (£1) from any of these outlets, and they will receive one clue.

Visit to Kenilworth Castle

As the Cabinet minister with responsibility for tourism, I know how important it is to many Parliamentary constituencies. It is a particular pleasure to have in my own a fantastic attraction like Kenilworth Castle and to visit it again during English Tourism week.

Support for Our Emergency Services

Despite the growing population and the increasing number of calls to both 111 and 999, West Midlands Ambulance Service have been able to maintain response times and improve the service they provide to those in need.

Visit to West Midlands Ambulance Hub

I recently visited the West Midlands Ambulance Service at the Warwick Ambulance Hub, to see their facilities first hand and to hear from them what it is like performing the vital duties they do for us all day to day.

Kenilworth School Funding

Delighted to hear that the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government has confirmed over £9.5 million of funding through the Housing Infrastructure Fund for the new Kenilworth School. This money will help build a top class educational facility for our young people.

Support for High Streets

You will, hopefully, have heard of my “Buy a Gift in Kenilworth” campaign around Christmas, but our High Streets are for every day of the year, and especially this most recent Saturday (16 March), which was High Street Saturday.
