This is obviously a difficult time for everyone and I appreciate many of you will have questions and concerns you want to raise with me. 

My office and I are working remotely from home and continuing to support residents and local businesses. However, As I’m sure you’ll understand, I am currently receiving an unprecedented number of emails and messages and would ask that you bear with me as my team and I work as quickly as possible to get back to you. Emails about specific problems, such as residents trapped abroad, will be prioritised and acted on immediately. As the situation progresses, it may not be possible for me to reply individually to every email; however any cases that need raising  or questions that need answering will be taken up and responded to as quickly as possible.

The best way to contact me is to email or TEXT 07984381047. You can also call the office on 0161 232 7562 and leave a voicemail message - these are being monitored several times a day, but the quickest way to get in touch would be by email.
