Over recent weeks, I have been visiting recently reopened retail businesses across the Forest of Dean constituency. Last Friday, I was out and about on Newerne Street in Lydney with Cllr Alan Preest, Lydney’s Town, District and County Councillor.
Last Friday, I got the opportunity to drop in to several of Coleford’s superb shops, from the award winning Forest Deli and Tobin & Son DIY & hardware store to David Sheppard’s butchers and The Choice is Yours greengrocers.
A suitably social distanced meeting with Mayor of Coleford, Nick Penny, last Friday during my visit to retail businesses alongside Coleford’s Town, District and County Councillor, Carole Allaway Martin.
At Prime Minister’s Questions today, on behalf of parents across the Forest of Dean, I asked the Prime Minister to make sure that tomorrow’s statement by the Education Secretary makes provision for the many children in my constituency and across the country who get to school by bus.
