Rescheduled hustings dates

Shelford.jpgI’ve had a busy weekend out meeting voters in South Cambridgeshire and listening to the issues that matter to them.

First up I visited Great Shelford and then Sawston, joined by some of the dedicated Labour team we have in South Cambs. Some of the main issues people wanted to talk to me about were school cuts, our local overstretched GP surgeries. These are just the sort of issues I know really make a difference to people’s lives in our villages, and I’m personally concerned as a dad, a teacher, a wildlife lover and the husband of a doctor.

£3bn is being withdrawn from school budgets in England and there are reports some heads are considering creating classes of 60-100 pupils because they cannot afford teaching staff. This is just crazy. That’s why I signed the Fair Funding For All Schools petition this week organised by concerned parents and I would urge you to do the same - www.fairfundingforallschools.org. You can get involved in the local campaign by joining the Fair Funding for All Schools – Cambridgeshire Facebook group.

New homes coming to the area will also heap pressure on already struggling GP surgeries in our villages. Do you trust the Tories to stump up the extra cash? I don’t -  I’d rather put my faith in a party that has a fully costed pledge in its manifesto to plough an extra £6billion a year into the NHS by raising taxes on some of the nation’s highest earners - the Labour Party.
