If youโ€™re looking for a high quality local job in #NDevon please visit @AlunGriffiths_ recruitment fair in #SouthMolton Pannier Market tomorrow from 10-3.
You'll find companies actively recruiting and practical and wellbeing support for your job hunt.

Last Friday I had a fantastic time meeting the engaged and passionate students of Pilton Infants School in #Barnstaple. It is great to see the school going beyond the curriculum to teach about community involvement and how students can work together.

Annual Parliamentary Bike Ride took place this morning complete with new Active Travel England CE Danny Williams @RuthCadbury @allpartycycling @SelaineSaxby @NLinUK @tier_mobility @London_Cycling @activetraveleng @bricycle @cityoflondon #bankjunction @pedalmeapp @citycyclists

Yesterday evening it was a pleasure to join the @Airbus reception at #Westminster and meet with @Tritech_Group who have manufacturing facilities in #Barnstaple and #Ilfracombe with current job opportunities and apprenticeships

Yesterday evening I caught up with Environment Secretary, George Eustice over #NDevon issues from farming to fishing to sand on the Highway ๐ŸŸ๐Ÿ„๐Ÿ–

On #NetZeroDay as a member of @EnvironmentAPPG we are highlighting that all parties back reaching net zero by 2050 or sooner. We can and must deliver a greener economy for all to enjoy across #NDevon and the world. ๐ŸŒ

Reading the new Lib Dem MP for Tiverton and Honitonโ€™s policy proposal on fuel tax cutting I believe he should join me on the @Conservative benches as his views are far more in line with our existing policies than the party he purports to represent.

Travelling and learning a new language is an incredible experience for young people. That is why programmes such as those run by @CountryCousins_ are so important. If you are interested in hosting a young person near #Ilfracombe you can find more info at

This #ArmedForcesWeek I want to thank all of those who work around the clock to keep us and our allies safe. #ArmedForcesDay

As we enter Summer I was happy to join @RLSSUK, @gpwhyte and @EllieRobinsonGB this #DrowningPreventionWeek as they shared their water safety tips so we can all #EnjoyWaterSafely.

Head to for information and advice. ๐ŸŠ

Fantastic to welcome Levelling Up Minister, @NeilDotObrien to #Barnstaple to see the Future High St Fund project as well as open the new leisure centre with #EddieTheEagle and see the fantastic continuous ski slope โ›ท

It was great to join @NFUtweets earlier this week with their campaign to #BackBritishFarming. If you know a farmer who that has supported their community and inspires others please get in touch to nominate them to be a NFU Farming Hero. ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸŒพ

Bringing Ministers to see and meet with people and businesses is something only @conservative MPs can do. Helen Hurford is a fantastic advocate for #TivertonandHoniton and can bring the decision makers to you and be your voice in Westminster.
#VoteConservative #HelenHurford

I had a fantastic afternoon with @NFFNUK last week launching their #RethinkFood campaign. Farmers promoting sustainable and nature friendly farming techniques joined us from across Britain, and showed Westminster that British food is the best. #FoodNeedsNature. ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐ŸŒพ

Itโ€™s election day in Tiverton and Honiton! Helen Hurford is the only candidate who can deliver for the area. The others are planning to shout and write angry letters. Helen will actually get results! #VoteConservative #TivertonandHoniton #HelenHurford

Bullying has no place in our communities, and no one should face it alone. Sadly, thousands of young people face it on a daily basis. I am happy to support the @DianaAward @AntiBullyingPro Don't Face It Alone campaign and #SpeakOutAboutBullying.
For info:

Helen Hurford will be a strong voice for #Devon and I hope #Tiverton and #Honiton residents will vote for her tomorrow so their voices continue to be heard at the heart of government ๐Ÿ—ณ@TivHonTories

Boris Johnson @BorisJohnson

Vote for Helen Hurford in Tiverton and Honiton tomorrow and stick up for British food and farming.

Yesterday evening I met with Energy Minister, @GregHands to discuss progress towards floating offshore wind farms in the Celtic Sea as Chair of the @APPGCelticSea

This week is #CervicalScreeningAwarenessWeek. Cervical Screening prevents 7 in 10 incidences of cervical cancer, but 1 in 3 do not attend their screening.

Visit @JoTrust for tips and support.

I joined some young environmentalists with @GreenpeaceUK in Parliament last week. They told me all about their campaign to reduce single-use plastic by 50% by 2025 to help the #PlasticCrisis.

These young campaigners really know their stuff! ๐ŸŒ

In case you missed it! I continue to work to level up our broadband access in #NDevon and across the UK as Chair of the @AppgDigicomms

This weekโ€™s #RailStrikes there will be no rail services on the #Barnstaple line on the 21st, 23rd & 25th June. There will be an extremely limited service on the line from #Exeter & #Tiverton to London, and services that do run will be very busy. @GWRhelp

Glad to see @dc_police with @VisionZeroSW at the @DC_PCC road safety event.

I was happy to hear their plans for #NDevon and how parish councils can get involved with their work halving serious road incidents by 2030.

This week is #LonelinessAwarenessWeek. Older people are particularly vulnerable to loneliness which is why @age_uk are working to support them.

It is always great to see first hand the investment being made by local businesses into #NDevon, so I was pleased to visit #Lynmouth Holiday Retreat of @CoastCountryPks to look around the work done on their new Park Homes and the stunning night-sky โ€˜glamping podsโ€™.

Congratulations to everyone across #NDevon who has started their @DofE Award. Despite the ongoing challenges and disruption created by the pandemic, a record breaking number of you have participated in the Award over the last year. ๐Ÿ† โ›บ

It was a delightful evening yesterday at @instowcricket with @DefraGovUK Minister, @Jochurchill_MP, local farmers and businesses discussing upcoming opportunities and challenges #GettingOnWithTheJob

Good to be out canvassing for the excellent @Conservatives candidate, Helen Hurford in #Hemyock this morning with @Jochurchill_MP @TivHonTories โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ—ณ

As Chair of @AppgDigicomms I spoke to @LDNTechWeek about the need for broadband infrastructure to be rolled out to rural communities like #NDevon.
It was great to speak with @DataShedAnna, @BlakeBower and @SheilaFlavell1 about the role of digital connectivity in levelling up. ๐Ÿ’ป

Today is #CleanAirDay and thank you to everyone in #NDevon who is cutting down on their pollution today.

Yesterday I met with @cleanairdayuk, we talked about how everyone can have an impact on air pollution and cut down on the threat of pollution to our health. ๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒณ

Pleasure to welcome Welsh Secretary of State, @Simonhartmp to #Ilfracombe this afternoon to discuss our plans for a passenger ferry to South Wales. ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟโ›ด๏ธ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ท๓ ฌ๓ ณ๓ ฟ

I attended the @breastcancernow awareness event this week.
It is fantastic to see such as high uptake of breast screening in #NDevon, with 69.4% of women attending screenings. Thank you to the CCG for doing a great job.
#CheckYourBreasts #NoTimeToWaste

This week the Government launched itโ€™s new Food Strategy.

I look forward to working across #NDevon to
๐ŸŒพ Boost food production
๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง Back local farmers
๐Ÿฅ• Promote local produce
๐Ÿ“ˆ Create jobs

Today is #nationalbeerday so do support your local pub and your local breweries! Lots of great beers out there to try! @nationalbeerday

Today I called out the Leader of the Lib Dems, for his inaccuracy in understanding rural policies. @Conservative MPs understand rural issues and the complexities of our geography. The Lib Dems shown again to mislead and make up policies to suit their electioneering @TivHonTories

Congratulations to #NDevon business @AramisRugby for becoming an Official Supporter of @rugbyworldcup. Supported by @WillGreenwood & @BillBeaumont I was joined by the Chancellor @RishiSunak, @MarkPawsey and many other colleagues to celebrate British manufacturing and innovation.

Very interesting event on colour blind awareness that affects 1 in 12 men, 1 in 200 women. So important school children know if they are colour blind to give them the best chance of success at school and beyond and too many currently do not

With @CllrAndreaDavis it was great to welcome @michaelgove to #Devon and show him the kinds of rural communities that need levelling up. He is engaged with housing problems in areas such as #Barnstaple, I hope to keep working with him to rebalance our housing market in #NDevon.

Yesterdayโ€™s @menomandate event at #Westminster highlighted the ongoing work to improve support for women through the #menopause
