⚠️ I’m supporting an important campaign to ban a highly destructive form of fishing 🐟 - bottom trawling - which destroys fragile marine ecosystems.

A ban on this damaging fishing practice would be good for small fishing communities. 🎣

Great to see so many people (as well as Jersey calves!) at the #IsleofWight County Show yesterday.

Grateful to have been given the opportunity to talk about how we can achieve a sustainable & prosperous future for the Island.

Thank you to Jane at the Community Pantry in #EastCowes for talking to me about the important work they do to support struggling families.

Their work is partly funded by a @DWP grant. Keen to see more Islanders supported by DWP grants.

🐄 If you're heading to the #IOW County Show this morning, please visit the Show Theatre at 11.45am.

🌳 I'll be sharing my thoughts on how a new 'island designation' could create a more prosperous future for the #IsleofWight.

Hope to see you there!

Out with Cowes Harbour Commission (@cowesharbour) today on the Medina looking at exciting plans for the harbour.

Great to see #Cowes so full for the @RoundtheIsland race ⛵️ tomorrow. Good luck to all the competitors.

Delighted @IOWNHS has submitted improvement plans for St Mary’s hospital.

#IOW healthcare services making promising steps forward. The £48m secured from @DHSCgovuk in 2019 will aid progress further.

Interesting to read re politicians who say we didn’t do enough to deter #Putin. Why don’t they answer the obvious question: why didn’t they do and say more when they had the power to make a difference? Why did they fail?

An #IOW abattoir is important. There’s been a mobile abattoir pilot scheme in Gloucs. Ministers know that I & NFU are keen to extend it to the #IsleofWight.

Thanks to #Freshwater Community Speedwatch members for showing me the valuable work they do to make #IOW roads safer. We’re lucky to have such dedicated volunteers on the #IsleofWight. Together, with the new IW Roads Policing Team, their work can make a difference.

🙋‍♂️ Campaigning for a new status for the #IsleofWight to help the Island achieve a sustainable future. I want to see better protection from greenfield development and an extension of the existing #IOW AONB. Hopeful the Landscape Protection Bill could be the enabler.

The Island's natural beauty and the future of Islanders could be protected by new designation. https://www.countypress.co.uk/news/20208154.isle-wight-get-island-status-protect-countryside/?ref=twtrec

👍 Really pleased to be advised by @kitmalthouse that legislation has been brought forward to change the name of the Hampshire police area to include the #IsleofWight.

🙏 Thank you to the Minister and to @DonnaJonesPCC for driving this forward.

Last night, I voted that I had confidence in the PM as Leader of the Conservative Party, although not without some consideration and only after discussion with senior ministers.

You can read my reasons here 👇

I’ve written to the Minister of State at the @MoJGovUK (Victoria Atkins) because I am frustrated by the lack of decision-making over the future of Camp Hill since its closure as a prison in 2013.

Thank you to @iwcollege for making the beacon’s frame and for 1st Freshwater & Totland cub pack / Freshwater and Totland Scouts for helping to prep it so brilliantly. It lit very quickly.

I wish Islanders a happy Jubilee weekend.

Great meeting at Briddlesford Farm to discuss exciting new plans for @MedinaCollege.

From this September students will be able to access an iGCSE in Agriculture. Medina is 1 of 3 providers in the country to be offering this - and the first state school to be doing so.

My thoughts on Britons offering to fight in Ukraine: a noble gesture but also potentially dangerous.

I’ve objected to new plans to build 149 houses on greenfield land in Gunville #IsleofWight. These proposals should be rejected in the same way as previous ones.

We need a new Island Plan and we need the new #LevellingUpandRegenerationBill to work for our communities.

Pleased to attend an event in Parliament hosted by @Battersea_. They see first-hand the issues that impact pets.

Looking forward to working with them on the Kept Animals Bill, regulation of rescues and pet-friendly properties to promote animal welfare.

I’ve written to Arts Council England (@ace_national) in support of a bid by @IWClassicBoat_ ⛵️ seeking funding to boost the museum in East Cowes (The Gallery).

It would be great to see this local asset become a museum of national importance.

Spoke to Lord John Randal @uxbridgewalrus about the need for an amendment to ban the cruel breeding of wild cats 🐯 – working with the brilliant @WildheartTrust on this. Hope to make changes to the law on this important issue. #iwnews #iow

An exceptionally moving story, told simply and powerfully.

▶️ Caught up with @iwight Interim Chief Exec. Wendy Perera today to discuss the challenges faced by IWC. Much of our conversation was about planning.

▶️ I’m working with parliamentary colleagues on amendments to the Levelling Up Bill to try to reduce some of these burdens.

Delighted to lead a group of walkers around part of the Warrior Trail again this year to support @IWWalkingFest.

This festival gives a boost to tourism on the #IsleofWight during the shoulder season.

Good to see @WillMyles from @VisitIOW on the walk too!
