As an MP working four, sometimes five days a week in Westminster, I believe it is vital to spend as much time as possible in West Dunbartonshire. Any chance I get I visit schools, community groups and local businesses.
One of my earliest constituency visits gave me the opportunity to meet the staff, parents and kids at Sunflower Nursery and to see the excellent service being delivered there.
The nursery has seen consistently high inspection grades from the Care Inspectorate and the energy and enthusiasm everyone had was immediately apparent. It’s clear that a ‘community’ ethos is behind their success. I was very impressed, not only with their results on paper, but to see how that has translated into a fantastic experience for the children.
