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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
