A Plan for Jobs

The Chancellor, Rishi Sunak, has set out the Government’s plan to support businesses, create jobs and give young people more access to job opportunities.

Drink at the Fleece Inn

It was great to catch up with Nigel Smith, Landlord, and enjoy a pint on Saturday evening at the Fleece Inn, Bretforton - where the team were ready to welcome us and serve us in a slightly different way to normal - but enjoyably and safely.

Visiting the Cotswolds

On Saturday, I spent time visiting businesses and attractions in the Cotswolds as the tourism & hospitality industry welcomes back visitors.

Good news for zoos

Since 15th June, zoos have been able to reopen outdoor areas, but I'm pleased that to further help their businesses recover from the impact of lockdown restrictions the Government has dedicated a further £100 million as a support fund.

Debate on Support for UK Industries

Last week, I represented the Government in a debate in the House of Commons on what support is available to our UK industries in this health crisis.

Visit to Broadway

Some pictures from a very picturesque day in Broadway. It was great to be able to go into the shops and chat to some of the business owners.

Visit to Evesham

Although proper visits aren't quite under way yet, I've taken the opportunity the last couple of weeks to be out and about in the constituency. 

Broadway opening up

Last week, I met up with Councillor Liz Eyre on a lovely and sunny Friday in Broadway. 

It was heartening to hear how those in the village have adapted to the lockdown, and it was great to see the preparations to restaurants and pubs who are gearing up to open again next week.
