Championing Our Communuity

James knows just how important the community is in Somerset - and has had the pleasure of meeting businesses, community groups, visiting schools and hospitals throughout the patch.

Earlier this year, James was appointed Prime Minister Boris Johnson's Parliamentary Private Secretary and has championed Somerset and made it very clear what this great county deserves. 

James enjoys visiting businesses across the Wells constituency which provide a lot of employment in the area and are working hard for the economy and has nominated businesses for awards, learnt about different trades - and even been lucky enough to sample some of Somerset's very best food outlets. 

He also holds weekly surgeries with constituents in order to help those in need and has hosted public meetings about issues which concern the local community. One of the things James has loved most about being the Member of Parliament is meeting the amazing people who make Somerset the brilliant county it is.
