I was delighted to hear the news that Leek Show has been saved.
I was really upset to hear the news that the Leek Show was to be discontinued and wrote to the organisers asking what I could do to help. I pledged to do all I could to help save the Show as it is such a very important event and a great showcase for the Moorlands.
Working to save Leek Show was one of my commitments during the election and I have attended and held meetings over the past few months to discuss the problem.
I am pleased to have been able to put local sponsors and businesses in touch with the organisers and look forward to many more years of this fabulous event.
The Moorlands is one of the most beautiful places in Britain and I am committed to protecting its natural beauty. I voted for a carbon neutral UK and support our plans to protect the environment. For our most rural areas, I have been lobbying for better broadband, more buses and protecting school transport. I am also working to save the brilliant Leek Show.
