Today I had my high street stall in Morley, and I was joined by James Cleverly, our fantastic Conservative Party Chairman. He had a warm reception from activists and local residents and discussed current issues with them.
Technology is a fundamental part of the British economy and it is very relevant in Morley and Outwood too. It was a pleasure today to visit Serif Systems Limited, a company selling IT services to SMEs based in Drighlington.
Morley is a great place to do business. Today, I visited "Inspired Design Kitchen", which relocated to South Parade a year ago, attracted by the strategic position of the town and by the thriving redevelopment of our historic industrial sites.
The festive season is on its way and our local area offer a number of events for everyone. This weekend I’ve been to the St Peter’s Primary school’s Christmas fair in Stanley and to the Cats Protection league’s open day in Gildersome, offering support to our local charities.
This afternoon I was shocked to learn that a volunteer for my campaign was abused, attacked and chased with a sledgehammer when leafleting. This follows a campaign of vandalism in which almost all my posters in the constituency have been sprayed on.
