Falklands Forty Schools competition: Last month, I wrote to Surrey Heath’s secondary schools to invite them to take part in a competition initiated by the Falkland's Government to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the liberation of the Falklands Islands. An amazing opportunity to visit the Falklands is up for grabs, and you can learn more here.

M3/A322 Noise Pollution update: In April, I wrote to Defra Secretary George Eustice regarding noise pollution emanating from the M3 in Surrey Heath. I asked for his guidance on securing improvements as soon as possible, and I will be sure to share any updates once I have any news. 

Deepcut Power-outages: Following a series of power-outages experienced at a number of military homes in Deepcut, I wrote to Defence Minister, Jeremy Quin MP, to ask if he can assist in expediting the connection of these homes to the SSE network, significantly improving the reliability of their power-source.
