I was honoured this week to take part in the official opening of a memorial garden at Plantsbrook School in memory of student Louis Watkiss, whose tragic death last year provoked such an outpouring of sympathy and sadness across the Royal Town.
Last Friday the Royal Town’s Conservative Association held our annual dinner in the wonderful setting of the Moor Hall Hotel. Our guest of honour was former prime minister Theresa May, who spoke to a full house in what was a very successful and enjoyable event.
Yesterday the Chancellor set out his plan to restore stability and tackle inflation in the Autumn Statement. The priority is to protect public services and help the most vulnerable struggling with the cost-of-living crisis. The statement recognised that the only way to achieve long term, sustainable growth is by gripping inflation, balancing the books and getting debt falling.
