I've been getting to grips with the vital role of community pharmacies on a recent visit to Pharmacy One in Heald Green.

Gatley Festival

Forget Glastonbury... the festival action for me this weekend was here!

Assistance Dogs

I am supporting a campaign to tackle discrimination against guide dog owners organised by the charity Guide Dogs.

Lady Barn House School Assembly

I was delighted to have the chance to speak at one of Lady Barn House School's 'Inspirational Speaker' assemblies, about life before Parliament and my role as an MP. It's always interesting to hear from pupils about the things they care about and to answer their questions.

I'm backing a call from Cancer Research UK to help bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.

Local Business Wins Queen's Award

It was interesting and insightful to join Minister for Business & Industry Andrew Stephenson MP on a visit to Woodford Engineering Consultancy in Cheadle Hulme. The company recently won a Queen's Award for International Trade, so it's great to see a business with local roots going global!

Stockport Grammar Visit Parliament

I had a great time meeting Sixth Formers from Stockport Grammar during their visit to Wetsminster. No prizes for guessing the main topic during a brilliant Q&A!
