St Helens

I have the honour of serving as the Member of Parliament for my local community of St Helens South and Whiston.

St Helens has been my home all my life. I love this town. My constituency includes the historic towns of Prescot and Whiston that I have come to care for just as much. 

Since 2015, when I first became the MP, I have experienced three general elections. Each time I was honoured to be selected by my local community to represent them on the national stage.

Before entering Parliament, I worked at Pilkington and served as a local councillor for over 30 years, including twice being the leader of the St Helens Council. Back in 2005 I was appointed a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) for my service to local government. This was a great honour that I will never forget
