Championing Our Rural Economy and Farming Communities

Our rural and farming communities are the backbone of our local economy, and I will continue to highlight the importance of our local farms and Lincolnshire's role as producers of much of the nation's food. Caring for our environment is also incredibly important, whether that is tackling litter, or protecting the beauty of our local landscapes. I always enjoy speaking with farmers and regularly highlight their views on sustainable food production and environmental protections in Parliament. 


Farming Recovery Fund Open

The Government has opened the Farming Recovery Fund to support farmers affected by the recent flooding.

Another success for the campaign for a ‘Buy British’ section on supermarkets’ online stores as Aldi launch ‘Best of British’ section for click and collect shoppers.
