Championing our Local Economy

I have been promoting our local economy in our area, from meeting and speaking to local business owners, to hosting an online jobs and careers fair, and calling on further support for hospitality businesses in the constituency of Louth & Horncastle.



Launching my 'Shop Local This Christmas' campaign


This year, I will be counting down to Christmas by shining a spotlight on one of our many great local businesses for each day of advent and creating a catalogue on my website to help with ideas of where to visit.

Alford is Open!

During my visit to Alford, it was great to speak to local business owners and to see the fantastic produce and services that they offer.

Spilsby is Open!

Serving customers since 1302, Spilsby is a historic market town with a vibrant high street full of shops. It was great to visit and speak to business owners and residents about reopening from lockdown.

Pubs are Open!

Pubs are at the heart of our communities and it is great that they have been able to reopen.
The Waggon and Horses have been a part of South Reston for over 130 years and it was great to speak to publican Nigel about its future despite the impact of coronavirus.

Louth is Open!

In the latest of my shop local series, it was great to see a busy market and shops on Saturday in Louth. This is just a snapshot of the many local shops we are fortunate to have on our doorstep.

Meeting the Team at Jubilee Park Swimming Pool

I was delighted to speak to Trustees Jon Finley, Amarylis Midgley, Kim Barr and Emma Brealey and Park Manager Joe Stanhope about the reopening of the lido at Jubilee Park.

Woodhall Spa is Open!

Businesses in Woodhall Spa have gone to great lengths to introduce social distancing and safety measures whilst maintaining the personal shopping experience the area is renowned for.

Welcoming back all shops re-opening today!

Retailers in Louth, were working hard over the weekend to open within the new rules, including Eve & Ranshaw which has been serving our area since 1781. Please support our high streets and shop local.
