Helping out at The Unicorn Centre

It was great to go back to see my friends at the RDA Unicorn Centre in Hemlington yesterday with a donation of 40 bags of postcrete to help repair their drive. My share of the donation was kindly matched by Green And Son Builders Merchant from Lingdale!

Fighting for Our Environment

I'm delighted to have been nominated for the award of Britain's "Greenest MP" by The Climate Coalition ahead of their #showthelove awards in March - wish me luck!

Brexit update and my question to the Prime Minister today

Last night Parliament voted that the Prime Minister should return to the EU to fix the backstop. We need serious changes to the draft Withdrawal Agreement that are legally binding, and that is what she has pledged to seek.

Thanking those who protect us

At a tough time for Cleveland Police, it was good to be able to thank Sergeant Whitlock and his team for the hard work they put in on our behalf at my surgery at Tesco Coulby Newham on Friday.

Supporting New Businesses in Our Area

It's always great to be able to support a local business that's starting out or expanding, and I was delighted to join Kelly Leanne Jones from Oopsie Daisy's in her brand new cafe and play area in Loftus.

Listening to Residents in Guisborough

It was great to be out with a big team talking to people across Guisborough yesterday. Special thanks to the two Bens: Ben Houchen, Tees Valley Mayor and Ben Bradley MP, who was the guest speaker at a fun fundraising dinner on Friday night!

A Community Asset for Loftus

One of the best things about our East Cleveland villages is the huge sense of community. Yesterday I was in Loftus to celebrate the beginning of Luke Senior Hall's new life after its transfer to that community from Beyond Housing UK.

A Promise Made, A Promise Delivered

Wonderful breaking news this morning that Teesside Airport has been officially SAVED! Well done to all involved in a truly remarkable campaign.

Great News for Valley Gardens

There's really good news for Saltburn today, as the Government has announced £40,000 for a new conservation management plan for Valley Gardens, Hazelgrove and Saltburn Gill.

Positive news as airport pressure pays off

I'm delighted that the hard work of Conservative, Liberal and Independent councillors on Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council looks like it has paid off today.
