Before I was first elected to Parliament as the MP for Northampton North in 2010 I worked for some 17 years in the criminal justice system in Northampton dealing almost exclusively with legally-aided criminal cases.
I was born and brought up in Northampton, and have lived and worked here my whole life. It is with immense pride that I have served the constituents of Northampton North for the past nine and a half years, since May 2010.
On Wednesday, 18th September it was my pleasure to attend the formal opening of the Institute for Creative Leather Technologies’ (ICLT) new facility located at the University of Northampton’s Waterside Campus.
When people have committed criminal offences and been convicted in court, they will sometimes receive a sentence to do ‘unpaid work’ in the community. This used to be called Community Service and is now called the Community Payback scheme.
