Conservative MP for Dewsbury, Mark Eastwood, visits Howlands to hold an ‘audience with’ session with a small group of Howlands members.
Marking the post-lockdown return to activities at the Howlands, a small number of members and volunteers were pleased to be back and have the opportunity to speak to Mark directly about his work in and around Dewsbury.
He spoke openly about his career so far and how he was pleased to represent Dewsbury and surrounding areas. He also spoke of exciting plans for the regeneration of the town to get it back on track to be the vibrant place it once was.
“Everyone was really pleased that Mark had been able to give some of his valuable time to come to Howlands. It seemed fitting the visit coincided with us easing in to returning to normal membership activities and meetings. His visit has given us the incentive and confidence to go forward with our plans for eventually returning to our usual routine, and we can’t wait.”
