Supporting Local Communities

The needs of towns and villages and different groups in the constituency vary enormously, due as much as anything to the number of different communities in the constituency. I am always willing to discuss issues with groups and speak out behalf of local communities where appropriate. I have taken issues to Government Ministers and also raised issues with local councils and other organisations to get clear and honest answers. Examples include:

  • Lobbied Ministers for disabled facilities at Goring Station
  • Lobbied highways England for better road signage on the M40.
  • Arranged meetings with Thames Water to get improved sewerage in Sydenham
  • Set up meetings with Ministers for head teachers and governors on local school isssues
  • Met with the Civil Aviation Authority to look at flights paths over the constituency
  • Arranged community meetings with Great Western on scheduling for the Henley Branch Line
  • Lobbied the Post Office to keep Clifden Hampden Post Office Open and to relocate Wheatley Post Office.   


John welcomes new business to Thame

John supports Thame Museum as it reopens

Thame Museum, like some many others, had to shut its doors earlier this year with COVID restrictions. Now with COVID safe provisions in place it has now been able to reopen. John visited them to see what changes they had made during lockdown and to celebrate the re-opening. 

Post Office Horizon System

The problems with the Post Office Horizon software is an issue that John has been aware of since becoming an MP when a constituent who had been involved in the situation briefed him. Since then he has joined colleagues to try to get to the bottom of the issue.
