Mark Eastwood (our local MP) visited us here in Skelmanthorpe on Friday 7th January 2022 to discuss current issues as a Yorkshire manufacturer.

After a few email discussions between Carol (our MD) and Mark Eastwood back in December, it was decided that it would be much easier for Mark to come and see us.

He spent time listening and understanding the issues with Carol and the management team. He then had a full site tour to understand our products, machinery and people.

Mark’s political priorities are supporting businesses in the constituency to create a strong economy and more jobs for local residents, which is a strong ethos for us.

Some of our discussions included:

Potential covid rule changes

Projects we have on going encountering issues that are due to poor public sector service delivery

NHS constraints

His advice is to strongly recommend that vaccinations and boosters should be taken up ASAP; both to prevent serious illness and to prevent additional load on hospitals.

He also informed us that based on current hospital load; it is very unlikely to be an escalation of restrictions in the near future.  This was very good news as we would have been unable to re-establish a mandatory 2 metre social distance rule in the company with our current staffing levels.

It was great to have someone here to listen to our issues and we are sure he will use some of the information to inform the relevant government departments and to understand the wider impacts of government policy and standards.

A nice note back from Mark:

‘’Dear Carol,

Thank you for hosting my visit of Friday and for the factory tour. It is always good to see a business thriving in the constituency, long may it continue.

As discussed in our meeting, should you need any further assistance from me, please feel free to contact my office at any time.

Kind Regards,

Mark Eastwood MP’’
