LOCAL MP Michelle Donelan is to embark on a whistle-stop tour of the Chippenham Constituency to meet residents.

She will be holding drop-in events in 15 different locations from village halls to supermarkets and coffee shops.

The tour will give her constituents the opportunity to meet their local MP and discuss issues of concern.

They will be able to bring to her attention any personal issues with which they would like her support.

The MP said: “Since being elected I have always sought to be as accessible as possible and with recent open surgeries proving very popular I have added additional dates to meet demand.

“I will be stopping 15 different locations in order to allow for people from all the constituency to share their problems, ask questions or simply have a chat.

“With events in both the day time and evenings I hope as many people as possible will be able to join me and I look forward to meeting as many people as possible.”

The whistle-stop tour of market towns and villages is in addition to her usual weekly surgery schedule.

Locations include Corsham, Chippenham, Melksham, Bradford on Avon, Staverton, Holt, Shaw, Neston and Westwood.
