Some people believe MPs put their feet up each Summer. Whilst some MP’s may actually do this, Weaver Vale’s MP, Graham Evans is certainly not one of them! He embarks on a his Summer Tour, heading into the heart of local communities, knocking on doors (for no reason other than to say hello) and meeting the people who matter most – local residents.
4th July: Boarded the Parliamentary train service on the Halton Curve line with local councillors and members of the North Cheshire Rail Users Group. This once yearly service will soon be a thing of the past thanks to Graham’s successful campaign to secure funds to re-open the Halton Curve line for good.
10th July: Graham formally opened the outdoor play area at Kingsley Community Primary and Nursery School before heading to one of his regular Help and Advice Surgeries in Helsby.
