The EU, potholes, fracking and flooding in Yeovil

I’ve just had a brilliant few days of visits and open surgeries in the constituency at the end of the Easter Recess, and would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who came along. 

Education and academies in Yeovil

The main part of my job as an MP is to represent groups and individuals in the Yeovil constituency in Westminster; to speak up with their hopes and concerns and to get them the best deal I can with the Government. Of those one of the groups that we should listen to and support most are our excellent local teachers.

Yeovil Street Pastors

Last Friday evening I hit the streets of Yeovil with the Yeovil Street Pastors to find out more about their work and some of the issues facing the town centre. The Pastors are a nationwide group of volunteers from local Churches who help their communities with some of the challenges particularly around nightlife.

Marcus Fysh calls for better road safety in Yeovil

In the last few months Marcus Fysh MP has been liaising closely with Somerset County Council, residents, schools and District Councillors regarding concerns relating to road safety issues.

The EU and infrastructure in the South West

When you stand for election as an MP, much as you might hope, it is not known what government might be formed and what that might mean for getting things done and how much a government might rely on your vote, if you win.

Marcus Fysh on rationalising Brexit

Last week I spoke in a House of Commons debate on our membership of the European Union. I expect the issue to dominate things in Westminster for the next few months and have heard equally passionate arguments from politicians and local residents.

Surgeries in Chard and Crewkerne

Chard today for surgeries. It was Crewkerne last week. Cafe lunch at the lovely Eleos was equally as good as at No.7 in Crewkerne last week, I am pleased to report! And the surgeries were lively and useful, as always.

Rates and broadband in Yeovil... and Donald Trump

This session of Parliament is in full swing and as before Christmas there is a real buzz and sense of energy about the place. It’s a privilege to be in Westminster when issues of huge importance on the national stage are being determined but what is still really striking is the variety of things that MPs can, and should, get involved in.

Positive steps for the Glovers and for Yeovil

It was good to see Yeovil Town Football Club move out of the relegation zone this week, and it is great that some key players are coming back from injury. The last couple of years have been tough for the Glovers and their fans, especially the last few months. 

Marcus Fysh - should Donald Trump be banned from Britain?

This week Parliament debated a petition to ban Donald Trump, businessman and "Apprentice" supremo, from entering Britain, in Westminster Hall. Over 100,000 people signed the petition, hence it was selected for debate, however whether Mr Trump plans to visit is uncertain.
