A message from Andrew Turner - the Island's MP
Looking Ahead to 2013
Although last year was not without its challenges there were also many highlights here on the Island. We celebrated the Queen's Jubilee with a visit from HM The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, we hosted another successful Cowes Week and saw many Island people and businesses winning prestigious awards. In recent months we welcomed the Minster for Farming, David Heath MP and the Minster for Energy, John Hayes to the Island. The campaign to support local milk is going from strength to strength with significantly more milk being processed, packaged and sold here on the Island - never going near a ferry.
Because of all the economic doom and gloom it is sometimes hard to remember that there is light at the end of the tunnel and the Government is dealing witht the unprecedented levels of debt they inherited. They are also introducing policies to support enterprise and hard work.
Can I help You?
I am the only MP for the whole of the Isle of Wight - the largest constituency in the UK. I represent almost 140,000 Island residents and I always do my best to stand up for everyone in our community - regardless of politics. So if you have a problem I can help with, or there is an issue I should take up, or you would like to talk about any aspect of my work as your MP, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
As always at this time of year I am out and about knocking on doors on Saturday mornings - finding out the views of my constituents. We always finish up at a local pub, so if you want to raise something with me you can find out where I am by calling my office on 530808 or looking in the Village Talk pages of the County Press. Of course I also hold my regular Friday afternoon surgeries - where you can make an appointment to come along to discuss any issues that concern you.
If you would like to get in touch or ask me to attend an event you are organising please call me on 530808.
Whatever 2013 brings I will continue to work hard to represent the interests of the Island and Islanders.
With all good wishes,
