I welcome the Prime Minister’s announcement of a record £14 billion investment in England’s schools between now and 2022/23, as well as plans by the Department for Education to boost teacher salaries to at least £30,000 from 2022.

Visit to the Cropthorne Maize Maze

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of visiting another Maize Maze in the constituency, this time in Cropthorne. My daughter had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon there and I would certainly recommend that families do visit one of these attractions before the end of the summer season!

Opening Costa Coffee in Evesham

Today I had the pleasure to open the latest Costa Coffee shop in Evesham, and chat to its Manager, Steve Collie, about how to support businesses in the constituency. I suspect I will be a regular customer for my early morning and late evening caffeine intake!
