Local developments on Policing

As someone who grew up in a policing family in our area, I feel really strongly about the importance of having police officers out on the beat, catching criminals and deterring crime, and local support for this comes across really strongly through my ‘Listening Campaign’.

Visit to Priors Hall School

I was delighted to visit Priors Hall – A Learning Community recently as part of their ‘Fitter Future’ afternoon. It was fantastic to join students in their PE activities and to see them taking part in ‘classroom workouts’.

I thought it might be useful to provide a quick update following the very worrying reports last night of the landslip in Corby leading to significant rail disruption and the need for hundreds of passengers to be evacuated from a northbound train to Nottingham.

The A43/Steel Road

I was recently informed that the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government is providing Marginal Viability Funding to support the A43/Steel Road project and the potential future housing this will help to unlock.

Visit to 'The Green Patch'

I enjoyed hopping over the border into Kettering to visit the Green Patch – a 2.5 acre community garden, which supports local residents by providing school clubs, volunteering opportunities and much more, with a real focus on ensuring better health and wellbeing.

Visit to the new ‘The Good Bean’ at Priors Hall

It was fantastic to visit The Good Bean’s new café at Priors Hall in Corby during their first week of being open. The premises are wonderful and it was great to see so many people enjoying the refreshments they have to offer - stunning coffees, cakes, lunch and brunch!
