Andrew Turner hosts summer surgeries

By a County Press reporter

MP Andrew Turner is urging residents to drop into his mobile summer surgery which will be visiting villages and towns across the Isle of Wight.

The programme gives people the chance to talk to Mr Turner about any concerns or issues they want to raise without having to make an appointment or a special journey to Newport.

Mr Turner said: "The summer recess from parliament gives me the perfect opportunity to get out and about in the community, something I really enjoy doing.

"I get the chance to talk to lots of people about a variety of topics. You don’t have to make an appointment, just turn up to see me wherever is most convenient for you.

"I get to meet people who want me to help them with serious issues as well as those who don’t really have a problem but just want a chat. That’s perfectly fine as it’s really important to me, as the Island’s MP, to find out what Islanders are thinking."

He added: "During the course of the year, I try to give people different opportunities to talk to me; I hold my weekly surgery at my office in Newport, supermarket surgeries across the Island and knock on doors on many Saturday mornings, but the summer surgery remains popular with many people."

Mr Turner will also have a stand at the Garlic Festival on August 16 and 17.
