John Stevenson will be welcoming Helen Grant MP, Minister for Sport and Tourism, to Carlisle on Sunday 15th March.
John will be visiting the Raffles estate with the Minister. This is a particularly special visit as Helen grew up on the Raffles Estate.
They will be met by Rev Barrie Thomas who has worked with the community for several years.
John said ‘The Raffles estate has improved a great deal over the past few years. This is testament to Rev Barrie Thomas and his team at Community Reach that work within the community, raising aspiration and assisting where necessary.
I am very much looking forward to seeing Helen’s reaction to the changes that she identifies since she was last in Carlisle.’
