With the House of Commons not sitting in the past week I have had the opportunity to do more work in and around the Constituency. On Monday I had a meeting with local dairy farmers and representatives of the National Farmers Union about various farming issues and in particular the effects of falling farm gate milk prices.
I have also visited Rowe Hankins Limited a local Company which once it has finished recruiting will have increased its workforce by about a third in the last couple of years up from 45 to 60. Importantly they are predominantly a manufacturing Company. They work within the rail industry providing high tech solutions to help improve safety, efficiency and reliability. of trains and light rail networks. More information can be found at their website here www.rowehankins.com
