Schools Funding

Quite understandably, given the vast morass of contradictory opinion and the diametrically opposed pronouncements of the Government and the Opposition, huge numbers of people are confused about school funding.


Langport and Somerton Rotary Club

With Langport & Somerton Rotary Club testing the blood pressure of Tesco's customers in Langport, alongside Cllr Dean Ruddle and Cllr Clare Aparicio Paul.
If three wannabe politicians can't raise your blood pressure, I reckon you're pretty safe.

Q&A at Batcombe

Thank you to the Parish Council at Batcombe, where I joined their district and county councillors to answer questions on a huge variety of topics. Very interesting evening, followed by a decent pint in the Horseshoes.

Political discussion group - Bruton

Lovely, as ever, to meet this regular political discussion group in Bruton and answer questions on a myriad of topics while eating cake. Thanks for having me, and I hope to be in a position to meet you all again soon..!

Easter Day in Nunney

We were too late to buy a duck for the big Easter Day duck race in Nunney, near Frome... But not too late to watch the race and the Easter bonnet parade from the riverbank. No one fell in.

Justice for those in Park Homes

Enormous turnout in Westminster for this event trying to seek justice for those in Park Homes, who have complained of unfair practices by the park owners. There are many in my constituency and I spoke at the event and - with other MPs - am trying to help.

Comic Relief

A very big thank you to Maltesers for coming to Parliament the other day and getting the nation to #bakeamillion for Comic Relief. All their bakers helped raise a very tasty £1,026,712 this Red Nose Day. I joined it too - that's my rather sad looking cup cake! Or can I call it a fairy cake?

50th Anniversary Dinner of the Frome Lions Club

I could call it an artistic photo, or I could admit it's a bit rubbish, but it gives a good picture (as it were) of the exceptional turnout at the 50th Anniversary Dinner of the Frome Lions Club, which Harriet and I hugely enjoyed.
