Meeting Lilian Barker at Chesterton's One Stop Shop

I spent this morning with Lilian Barker MBE at the fabulous and Queen’s Award-winning One Stop Shop that she runs in Chesterton with a team of dedicated volunteers. Lilian herself first set up the shop in 2001 - it has been a true labour of love!

The shop offers drop-in advice on all sorts of housing, health, police and benefits matters and is a huge asset to the community. Officials from Citizens Advice and Aspire Housing are also in regular attendance - please call 01782 563603 for details.

I was hugely impressed by the kindness and professionalism on display from Lilian and Debbie. If elected as your MP I will liaise regularly with Lilian to help resolve casework, and I will also press for business and governmental partners to help support their work.
