13th September to 5th October

I held my annual community consultation, the Big Conversation, which I do every year to listen to people’s concerns and views. There were events across the constituency – see the programme below. Lots of people came along to share their views and I’m really grateful to everyone who got involved.

The events finished on 5th October, and the survey closed on Sunday 13th October. I’ve already spoken about some of the issues raised in Parliament, and will publish my report on what I heard in the Big Conversation on 23 October.
