Dear North Norfolk Resident,
I am delighted to have been selected as Labour’s Parliamentary candidate in North Norfolk at the next general election in May 2015.
I am passionate about North Norfolk. I live and work in Happisburgh with my husband, Stephen, and our two dogs and two cats.
I have relatives living in North Walsham and Bacton. I love the contrasts between our towns and villages, the coast and countryside. I even shared my passion for local produce when I appeared on Come Dine With Me recently.
North Norfolk is a great place to live, work and visit. But many people are finding it tough as costs rise while incomes are squeezed.
Rising fuel and energy bills are making it harder for everyone both at home and getting out and about. A lot of jobs pay little more than the minimum wage and this means that local housing is beyond the reach of many families.
As your Labour candidate, I will stand up for ordinary families and fight for affordable housing and transport, a living wage for all, and better services for children and older people. Labour has already shown we can make a big difference in North Norfolk with our Act on Ambulances campaign.
My mantra is ‘well behaved women rarely make history’. I will challenge injustice wherever I find it and I will fight for everyone in North Norfolk.
My broad experience – from working as a tax inspector and a childcare adviser to both Mayors of London, as a chair of BBC Children in Need and a long-standing school governor, and campaigning for better care for all ages and running the Good Care Guide – will help me fight for a better North Norfolk.
If there are any issues, big or small, that I can help you with, please get in touch. My contact details are listed on the leaflet below and you can also follow me on Twitter and Facebook.
I look forward to hearing from you and hope to meet you in the coming months.
