Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

It’s time for an update but firstly can I just say a huge thank you to all the local people that keep contacting me and coming up to me thanking me and my team for all our work during the time I was your local MP. As I always knew the good folk of Huddersfield and the Colne and Holme Valleys don’t care much for petty partisan politics but just care about where we live, work and play. Thank you too for all those who keep asking if I’ll stand again. I’m enjoying a break from front line politics but as the saying goes, never say never.


I’m now a year into my role as the Head of Public Affairs at the award winning University of Huddersfield. My job is to strengthen the University’s relationship with opinion formers and policy makers so I’m spending plenty of time down in Westminster banging the drum not just for our University but for our town and Yorkshire in general.

I’m honoured to have been appointed as a Director of the Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce, supporting and representing our local business community. I’m delighted to be a Director of Holme Valley based fairandfunky making a positive difference in the world. I’ve been sitting on award panels for the One Community Foundation Trust awarding grants to local charities and community groups. I’m also supporting our local Honley High School and enjoying supporting the local community and events. I continue to take part in the monthly Honley village tidy up and enjoyed the recent Honley Lights switch on (picture below) and the annual Christmas Street fair.

I’m still cheering on Huddersfield Town in the Premier League with my season ticket in the Kilner Bank and I also managed to get to some Huddersfield Giants games too. My former Parliamentary team have moved on to pastures new but we all keep in touch and we see each other regularly. I hope to see you out and about soon and thank you once again for the amazing support you continue to give me.

May I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
