Bowthorpe is a very special place and it is an honour to serve the communities of Larkman, West Earlham, Clove Hill, Chapel Break and Three Score. I live in Three Score with my wife Sue and family. As a teacher I know the importance of education and how critical improvements to our local schools are. I am proud to have helped campaign and secure the investments in SureStart, new CCTV to protect our shopping centres in West Earlham and Clover Hill and home improvements to local council properties. These are tough times for many fellow constituents in Bowthorpe as Tory / Lib Dem cuts bite harder and harder. Being part of the strong Bowthorpe Labour team is a way to fight back against these negative changes and difficulties.
