WATCH: Saving Barclays Bank

Barclays are wrong to try and close their branch on Lincoln Road, Millfield. We are going to do our best to get them to change their minds! 

Backing British Farming

Peterborough‘s farmers are the best in the UK. I am the Mustard King! 

Pleasure to #BackBritishFarming and #Peterborough’s mustard seeds.

Wellbeing centre plans

Recently I met with local business owner James Offiler who has a plan for a new wellbeing centre in #Peterborough. 

His unique ideas are exciting and could be a perfect partner to NHS Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG and the BMI Can Do It campaign! 

Tory Chair’ in town

It was a pleasure showing off a few great Peterborough businesses to the Conservatives Chairwoman.

We have been given just about the biggest single grant of any City from the Government to build the research hub at the University. 

WATCH: Bretton Gas Fire

Earlier I went to the The Cresset Bretton and spoke with everyone who was still there and the helpers on hand. Heard some stories about people being a little scared at first, but then resilient and determined.

Cleaning up after illegal Peterborough party

People coming from outside #Peterborough to attend illegal parties are not welcome. I have written to the council to get this mess cleaned up. 

Residents in decent neighbourhoods like Eastgate should not have to put up with this. Disgusting, dangerous and wrong!

The Entertainer

Visited The Entertainer today in #Peterborough. Bradley the manager and his team make an excellent point about toys keeping kids entertained for indoor and outdoor play during COVID-19. Bought a cupcake Lego set and a lights/sounds buggy driver. Got Becky B and Eris a toy too.

My Letter to Pizza Express Boss

The founder of Pizza Express, Peter Boizot MBE, was from Peterborough. He loved this city and is affectionally known by many as Mr Peterborough. I know he would have been horrified by the prospect of the closure of the Peterborough branch.
