Locally, I have been working with Nicola Brindley MBE and the J9 initiative to support survivors of domestic abuse here in Rushcliffe and Nottinghamshire. The J9 initiative was set up in memory of Janine Mundy (AKA J9), a mother of 2, who was killed by her estranged husband.
As the pandemic continues, I want to make sure that I am being proactive in hearing about local transport infrastructure. From road to rail, I want to hear your thoughts on what more needs to be done to improve transport across Rushcliffe.
Having witnessed the damage caused by local flooding during the 2019 General Election, one of my first actions as MP has been to meet with those affected to address residents’ concerns and develop a plan to prevent future instances.
Bringing skilled, green jobs to Rushcliffe is one of the best ways of preserving our environmental legacy. I am advocating for the development of a green tech park on the site of the Ratcliffe-on-Soar power station and the creation of a cleaner, green economy.
As part of the wider government investment in healthcare, I am working to improve local services. This includes the redevelopment of East Leake health centre with an aim to modernise and expand healthcare provision for the area.
