Welcome

Welcome to my website where you can find out the latest news and campaigns from Aberavon and my contributions in Parliament.

I hold regular surgeries across the constituency, you can find out more details about these on the Events page. I also produce a monthly e-newsletter which you can sign up to here.

Over the coming months I want to transform the MP’s office into a hub of community activity, based around coffee mornings, discussion forums and community engagement projects. I'll be hosting a range of coffee mornings and forums to meet and engage with the local community to hear their thoughts on the future of Aberavon. In the forums I aim to provide advice and help on matters like reducing fuel costs and to encourage investment into the constituency.
