My Priorities for Hitchin & Harpenden

  • Improving our Local Environment

    Our environment should matter to every politician, of all parties. Not just because it matters to voters, or indeed just because it is the right thing to do.

  • Protecting our Local High Streets and Small Businesses

    In Hitchin, Harpenden and surrounding villages, we are lucky to have so many fantastic local businesses, which we must continue to support. In the last Parliament, I lobbied the Government to reduce business rates for small businesses. 

  • Increasing Funding for our Schools

    I feel very passionately about supporting our schools who do an outstanding job in serving local villages communities. The local school is often at the heart of the community.

  • Retaining Thameslink services

    GTR’s timetable change in May 2018 was devastating for commuters in Hitchin and Harpenden. Many will recall the unbearable commute with consecutive services cancelled due to systemic errors with the launch.
