The Govt's decision to close Kendal court removed easy access to justice for hundreds of people, increasing pressure on police, legal professionals & local families. So I'm glad the minister agreed to meet with me to discuss how we can restore access to justice to the South Lakes

Cleaner public transport is key to us tackling the climate emergency. But over the past decade we've seen 888 bus routes cut in the NW. If Govt is serious about Northern Powerhouse then a comprehensive, affordable and reliable rural bus service in Cumbria must be a key part of it

Got my flu jab at the Well Pharmacy in Kendal last week. Pharmacies and GP surgeries are offering the flu jab this winter. It is completely safe, will only take a few minutes and could ultimately save a life.
