I would like to wish all my constituents in North Durham a very happy 2024.

I know 2023 has been hard for many, with the ongoing cost of living crisis affecting not only people’s finances but their health too.

It has been a privilege to meet with so many of you over the last 12 months and I look forward to seeing even more of you this year. If you would like to meet with me at one of my surgeries or arrange for me to visit your business or community event, please do get in touch. My team and I are here to help in whatever way we can.

While it is natural to reflect on the year we leave behind, it is important to look to the future. I will continue to work hard for North Durham, and I hope 2024 will be a year where we can turn a corner for our country.

Best wishes,
