As the General Election campaign enters its final weekend, Nicola took the chance to pop into Cumnor village and catch up with locals at Cumnor Post Office. Nicola has long supported local residents in their campaign to keep the Post Office open, writing to the Post Office Head Office and arranging a meeting with the Post Mistress, as she knows what a valued local service this is. Local people are grateful for Nicola’s support as she continues to keep up the pressure on Post Office Ltd.
She then popped over to Appleton for the latest update on the Northmoor Weir, having campaigned hard back in 2011/12 to stop the Environment Agency’s plans to replace it, and was pleased to hear the new, lighter paddles are now in place and a removable gantry is currently being designed.
Nicola was then joined at the fabulous Plough Inn for a delicious lunch with some campaign volunteers, before taking a moment to tweet a good luck photo to Oxford United for their final game against Newport.
After lunch Nicola stopped in at the Appleton Community Shop, a greatly valued community asset where business is booming. This weekend the shop has been celebrating its fifteenth birthday, and so Nicola came back the next morning to their party to have tea and cake with locals and hear about issues affecting the community.
For the past five years as the local Member of Parliament, Nicola has been supporting villages across the constituency as they fight for investment in infrastructure such as broadband and services like the Post Office, and has promised to continue backing rural communities.
