Join in with my Summer Tour!


Although Parliament is in recess until September, I am still busy with a wide range of constituency and other issues. This summer, I wanted to use the opportunity of no legislative workload to visit almost every corner of the constituency as part of a bus tour.

Acting as a complement to my normal schedule of surgeries, the tour is intended to ensure that those residents who don’t normally have the chance to visit me at a surgery to meet me in their local community, to discuss any concerns or worries. During the tour, I will visit a range of accessible locations from the Barn Rooms in Hemsby through to the Bell Inn at St. Olaves.

Using a bus kindly donated by Reynolds of Caister, I will visit almost every community in the Great Yarmouth constituency. Our historic borough is a hugely diverse place that ranges from scenic small villages and hamlets to one of the most dynamic urban areas in Norfolk, as such, I wanted to ensure that residents across the constituency had an easy way of meeting me and letting me know what they think. I am looking forward to residents hopping onto the bus; and having a good old-fashioned chat. Look out for local posters and leaflets to find out when I will be in your neighborhood.
