This morning I had the great pleasure of opening the Royal Sutton Coldfield Chamber of Commerce Exhibition 2023 at our Town Hall along with President Phil Arkinstall and the President of the Greater Birmingham Chamber, Deb Leary.
This week the Sunday Running Club met on Saturday to celebrate their first anniversary and the tremendous contribution and success of the club in that time.
I joined them (at 6:30am!) to start them of on their anniversary 5km and wave them all off.
I have heard from a handful of constituents about a conspiracy theory spreading that our cinema could be torched - I would like to put these rumours firmly to bed.
However I do understand that local people are worried about the vulnerability of the site being empty so I have been in touch with West Midlands Police about extra patrolling around the vacant site so that it is free from anti-social behaviour.
I am pleased and humbled to be able to report that I was reselected by the Royal Sutton Coldfield Conservative Association last weekend (I gather unanimously since you ask!) to fight my seventh election as the Conservative candidate in the Royal Town.
