Visiting Kirkleatham Museum

Fantastic visit to Kirkleatham Museum & Grounds today with the museum manager, Joanna.

They’re using a track and trace system, limiting the numbers of entries per hour and have a one way path in place to help people enjoy the museum safely.

A Walk Around South Bank Ward, With Cllr Sandra Smith

Thank you to Cllr Sandra Smith for joining me on a walk around South Bank ward today, talking to some of the residents about the issues facing them and their homes.

Our communities are well served by Councillors like Sandra who live and breathe their area.


Catch Up with Cllr Adam Brook

Catching up with Grangetown’s Councillor Adam Brook.

He’s got lots of plans for what he wants to see in his area - and some great ideas for the future of Grangetown Library and Grangetown Generations.

Great to be working with him for the better of our communities.


Care Home Concert


Amazing listening to Rayven Skye Music at Brookfields Nursing Home in Lazenby.

Rayven is 12 years old, from Redcar, and has a phenomenal voice - clearly a star in the making.

Maiden Speech

The BBC have recently reposted my maiden speech (the first speech I made in the House of Commons) on iPlayer

In the speech I talk about our communities, the things I want to achieve while I’m your MP and a little bit about Redcar’s most famous MP - Dr Majorie Mowlam.

Visit to The Naughty Habit

Lovely to visit Helen & Claire who run The Naughty Habit cafe/bar in Nunthorpe!

They took over just before lockdown and so have been using the time to train up, perfect their menus and refurb the cafe inside.

Redcar Gymnastics Club

Yesterday I had the real privilege of meeting Redcar Gymnastics Club and hearing more about them.

The gymnasts are a real credit to their trainers like Diane, Susan and Caroline who work with them 20 hours a week - helping them grow in their ability. 

Polished Salon, Marske

Talking to Debbie at the Polished Salon in Marske about the #SalonsAreSafe campaign.

It has been so difficult for businesses like theirs who’ve still not yet been able to fully open, especially when the advice has changed overnight.

Longbeck Nurseries

Great to chat with Lee from Longbeck Nurseries today.

Macro Based Diner

Pleasure to speak to Mike Hind at Macro Based Diner today.
