After signing the oath of allegiance as I mentioned in last week’s column I was free to come back to the constituency and meet with people who required my help with casework issues.
On Friday afternoon I was at Lancaster Town Hall for the annual mayor making ceremony.
This year the new mayor is Marsh ward councillor John Barry and I was there to watch the special council meeting elect him to this post.
It is always a pleasure to meet the school children who come to watch the meeting and this year I was pleased to chat with staff and pupils from Ryelands Primary School.
I wish Counsellor Barry all the best for his mayoral year.
I was particularly pleased to hear that one of this year’s mayoral charities would be St John’s Hospice, a truly deserving cause.
On Saturday evening I was at the Globe Arena to attend the 18th birthday celebrations of Mateo Sanderson, who is a big fan of the Shrimps.
Mateo raises lots of money for charity, especially Children in Need and Alex House.
One of the things Mateo organises each year is a fun walk from the Midland Hotel in Morecambe to Happy Mount Park and back.
This year’s fun walk is on Sunday, September 27 at 10am starting at the Midland, and will be in aid of Highfurlong School and Children in Need.
I hope lots of you can join me at this brilliant event and support such great causes.
My office is now open fully after the election campaign and all of the MP’s hotlines and departments are now accessible again.
