Diary - a new Mayor

Out meeting prospective constituents and then attending the Mayor Making at the Pavilion in the evening. The latter was a fun evening, with Cllr Kevin Brookes taking over from Cllr Richard Kosior, who has done an outstanding job over the past year and clearly enjoyed it.

Diary - questions from islanders

Rain, rain and more rain. What a foul day. Time to catch up on constituency matters and although  I am not an MP I still have to represent those in the constituency and their concerns do not stop just because there's an election.

Diary - residents have their say

An interesting day supporting a colleague and then another Drax Direct in Worth Matravers. A packed hall and lots of questions for nearly two hours. 

Diary - supporting a friend

The day began early with a visit to Lulworth fisherman Jo Miller. They are a lovely family, who have fished our waters for a long, long time. We discussed EU matters and regaining our fishing waters.

Diary - Freedom of the Borough for Sea Cadets

Day began early knocking on doors to meet more residents. Then I reported to the Weymouth Sea Cadets at Barrack Road for their big day at 1300. Appropriately, the sun shone as the youngsters prepared to march through the town to Holy Trinity Church as part of the ceremony.

Diary - launching new buses for Weymouth

Launched my second bus in a month. Not sure launch is the right word, but reported to the Pavilion in Weymouth to meet General Manager of First Wessex, Simon Newport, and his team to launch their new single deck buses that will run on the Route 2 and 10 corridors.

Diary - Sun, sea and residents

Out in one of the finest resorts today and not forgetting a small village. In the evening, meeting residents from W Lulworth and others from around the area at one of my Drax Direct meetings.

Diary - on the door

Out again all day meeting prospective constituents. Another fascinating day, with a lot of interesting feedback. A lot of warmth, too. 

Diary - meeting prospective constituents

Out all day meeting prospective constituents. French elections nearing the finishing post. Emmanuel Macron in the lead. Polls predicting a handsome win against Marine le Pen.
