Tatton MP to hold drop in sessions

By on August 3, 2018

Tatton MP Esther McVey will hold a series of informal drop in sessions across the constituency as Parliament starts it Summer break.

People will have the chance to quiz her on local or national issues, have a chat over a cup of tea or coffee, or book a further appointment to discuss any concerns during her constituency surgery sessions.

Ms McVey said: “These drop in sessions are a great opportunity for me to meet more people and hopefully see some familiar faces. Last summer I was setting up my office so it was more difficult to hold as many events as I would have liked, so I am really looking forward to being able to spend this time in recess in our beautiful constituency getting to know lots more people.”

MPs return from Westminster to their constituencies at for the recess at the end of July and are not expected back in London until early September.

This set of drop in sessions will be held in village pubs in the more rural parts of the constituency and any constituent is welcome to attend, no booking is necessary.

Ms McVey added: “I want to ensure everyone who wants to talk to me or meet me can and I understand it can be more difficult for some people living in more rural parts and that is why I have decided to do the first drop in sessions in these areas. The work does not stop in the summer, there is a lot to do in the constituency, lots of meetings and visits arranged in addition to these sessions and I hope to see as many people as possible for a chat.”
