Over 100 come to Back Barwell for 2015

On Saturday 19th July, over 100 volunteers from across the country travelled to Croydon to back my campaign to be re-elected as the Member of Parliament for Croydon Central at next year’s General Election.

With the election less than 300 days away, they delivered a letter from Boris Johnson setting out why he thinks I'm an excellent local MP and knocked on approximately 10,000 doors to find out if residents had any concerns they would like passed on to me.

We were also joined on the campaign trail by the Secretary of State for Justice, Chris Grayling MP.

There are roughly 50,000 properties in Croydon Central and almost 80,000 potential voters. My campaign team and I knock on doors almost every weekend, listening to the concerns of residents, but it obviously takes a long time to get round 50,000 front doors.

That’s why it’s great to receive so much support from volunteers around the country who want to help me hold my seat at next year’s election.

As an MP, it is impossible to please all of the people all of the time, but I can look people in the eye and say I have done this job to the very best of my ability. I’ve tried to be a strong voice for Croydon in Westminster but also to be active in the community and to keep people in touch with the work I am doing on their behalf. It’s been a huge honour to represent my home town in Parliament. I am passionate about Croydon and optimistic about its future and I look forward to being judged on my record next May.
