Our canals and rivers are so important and I am a big believer that they should be protected. The @CanalRiverTrust is part-owner of the Cromford Canal in Derbyshire Dales and I’m a member of @FriendCromCanal, so I was pleased to learn about the Trust’s activities… 1/2

On Friday I was pleased to have the opportunity to visit Forged Solutions in Darley Dale.
Simon Pickering, General Manager, took time to explain the company’s history. The site in Darley Dale was founded in 1942 and it was fascinating to hear about its evolution, including… 1/3

It was lovely to meet Phil Mulligan this evening in the House of Commons. Phil has just been appointed as the new chief executive of the Peak District National Park Authority, from 5 September 2022.
We had lots to talk about and I very much look forward to working with him.

It was lovely to meet South Darley Parish Council in Oker with County Councillor Susan Hobson last week. I am keen to meet as many Parish Councils as I can and attempt to assist with any issues they bring to me.

The NI Protocol is causing problems for people, businesses & society across Northern Ireland.

We have a solution to fix these problems & protect the Belfast (Good Friday) Agreement:

The NI Protocol is undermining the Belfast (Good Friday) Agreement. The EU are unwilling to change the Protocol, therefore we must act.

Read my @FT piece on how our legislation will fix the practical problems the Protocol is causing👇

I was delighted to support the Bakewell Farmers' Market on Saturday. You can buy goods from all over the local area. I have my favourites including Charlie’s Garden, from Bakewell. Please support our local suppliers and come and visit next month!

One year on and my Mexican fleabane from Tissington Nursery in Tissington Village is doing really well!

It was lovely to attend the Cromford Church of England Primary School summer fair yesterday morning. The PTA, Headteacher Liz Foster & her team, including Governors, had clearly worked very hard to put on an excellent fun-packed event. The raffle had really good prizes, … 1/2

The usual great fun to see the Duck Race at Hatton & of course with the wonderful Cllr Julie Patten. Such a strong community spirit- well done Alex Hall & Cassie & all the Team

Great to spend the afternoon at Wolverhampton's Armed Forces Day in West Park. Met some amazing people from our Forces, Cadets and Veterans charities 🐺🧡🖤
An honour to spend time with Neil Binder, a Falklands Veteran who now runs an AF Breakfast Club in Wolves.

Good to meet Derbyshire craftsmen & women at the Craft fare in #Tissington today.
There were great artists & creatives with exceptional wares on offer.
I bought some wonderful gift cards with pictures by a local artist. Do support our local craft fairs.

I’ve been asked to post more photos of the brilliant school summer fete held by Kniveton Church of England Primary School yesterday. My favourite is the picture of Mr Luke Redfearn, Headteacher, about to experience a wet sponge on the “Splatter your Teacher” stall.… 1/2

Today is Armed Forces Day and I want to thank all of those who work around the clock to keep us and our allies safe. #ArmedForcesWeek #ArmedForcesDay

I was delighted this morning to join veterans for breakfast at the Bakewell Armed Forces and Veterans’ Breakfast Club. … 1/3

The rain held off for Kniveton Church of England Primary School’s Summer fete yesterday.
First proper school fete since Covid & the children were v excited.
We started with enthusiastic, choreographed singing from year groups. Good fun for all.
I really enjoyed meeting everyone.

Wonderful to meet with the Rev’d Louise Petherham, Councillor Alasdair Sutton and St Barnabas parish councillors and parishioners in Bradwell this afternoon.
Such a beautiful church and such dedicated custodians.
I had an interesting tour of the churchyard, which is beautiful.

It was good to pop into the Whitworth in Darley Dale today.
It’s a great place to meet people and is a wonderful resource with an interesting history, do come and visit.
Please email me if you have a problem & would like my help:

#ArmedForcesweek, I would like to thank all those civilian instructors who give their time so freely to support our youngsters who are cadets in the three Services. Today I had a lovely chat with Sarah Bradley, Flt Lt, of 140 (Matlock) Squadron. … 1/2

Just to update constituents, I have continued to assist with passport and Homes for Ukraine visa applications by visiting the Home Office hub here in Westminster.
My team and I are happy to help with any outstanding cases. Please email.

This week in Westminster, I have been sitting as a member of the Levelling Up & Regeneration Bill Committee hearing from experts on changes proposed by the Bill.
This is really important work and will contribute to the delivery of reform and the Government’s levelling up agenda.

Our modern Bill of Rights will strengthen the UK tradition of freedom of speech, and better protect the public from dangerous criminals.

We are restoring a health dose of common sense into the justice system. ⤵

Today, I’ve been moved by people who experienced bullying as children.
Like many people, I was teased – in my case, when I started comprehensive school.
These experiences stay with us for life.
Now is the time to encourage young people to speak out & not to suffer in silence.

🧵 I was bullied as a teenager. I am dyslexic and was overweight - seen as an easy target. Older kids thought I was too stupid to succeed, too fat to be taken seriously. (1/6)

Today is #ReservesDay, part of #ArmedForcesWeek, and I’m very proud to have a Royal Naval Reservist as a member of my team in Parliament, who is in uniform today to mark the occasion.
Thank you David.
As Sir Winston Churchill said, a reservist is ‘twice the citizen’.

My work to address flooding in our area continues. To hear directly from residents on flooding, I have recently undertaken a survey in Matlock & the Bakewell area. Although results are still coming in, it is clear that flooding is a real concern for the majority of people. …1/4

I recently had the pleasure of a chat and cup of tea with Mark Wakeman and Vicky Hewitt-Smith to hear about the work of the community on issues surrounding the Recreation Ground at #Bakewell.
The park ‘friends’ group is a great example of our local community taking action.

Families are facing global cost of living pressures. Labour's response? Backing today's rail strikes.

Their union friends admit it will cost families, yet Labour won't condemn it 👇

In Derbyshire Dales, farmers often go above & beyond for their local community, so I was pleased to attend ‘Community Farming Heroes’ today, an initiative by the National Farmers Union. Good to speak to NFU East & West Midlands Regional Director @robertnewbery about local issues.

Every single day, members of the Armed Forces work around the clock to keep the UK and our allies safe.

On #ArmedForcesWeek, we salute their service.

A very moving #ArmedForcesWeek flag-raising event at Parliament today and how wonderful that the Service Children's Community Choir @S_C_CChoir were present to help celebrate the occasion.
A reminder of the role of family members in support of the UK Armed Forces.

Last week I visited the Home Office Hub in Parliament on more than one occasion to advance constituents’ applications for passports, applications to host Ukrainian refugees, and also to help obtain a sports visa in relation to a constituency sports club. …1/2

Look how beautiful, neat and tidy the open gardens were today at Tissington’s Open Gardens day.

Next week there will be train strikes across the country meaning no services in Derbyshire on Tues, Thurs & Saturday. These strikes are supported by the Labour Party, despite the disruption and misery they will bring for many. … 1/2

We have our very own award winners at Matlock Job Centre!
It was great to learn first hand how the Job Centre works at #Matlock recently and how we have several unsung heroes working hard for local residents.
Thank you so much for the recent visit and your unstinting commitment.

During the recent #PlatinumJubilee celebrations it was really good to meet so many constituents over the length and breadth of Derbyshire Dales.
I’ve been asked to share a few more photographs of friends old and new.
We know how to do it in Derbyshire Dales!

Keir Starmer has spent 11 days refusing to condemn the rail strikes. On Wednesday he ordered his MPs not to take a stand against the militant unions.

Now we know why: In private, he's backing the strikes which will grind the country to a halt.

It was a lot of fun on Friday to visit the Castle View Primary School and Nursery Matlock and have the opportunity to engage in the outdoor play with the children.
They loved showing me what to do.
So impressed with the school!
