Hampshire is an incredibly special place where community is valued and nurtured which is why our home has been here for the last 33 years, firstly in Winchester and then in Southsea. My husband was born and brought up in Petersfield (we got married in Bishop's Waltham) and my parents moved to the Meon Valley in 1986 following a lifetime of serving the country abroad in the British Army and Foreign Office. My father is buried in Meonstoke Church and my mother still lives in the village.
When I was the MP for Portsmouth South, I was determined to encourage an active debate between all people regardless of politics about how we can make our community better year on year. I will continue to do this as the MP in Meon Valley. I am committed to holding frequent surgeries around the constituency, to listen to your views and help you you’re your problems.
I also want to visit every pub, library, community centre and as many businesses as I can. If you are a small business, community group or club and would like me to come and visit please be in touch.
I will be a visible MP in the constituency and work extremely hard on your behalf. I will not be taking any personal expenses in my role as MP such as travel to Westminster or for accommodation in London.
