Working for the future of Bedford & Kempston

Please note: This site covers the period that I was a Member of Parliament from May 2010 to June 2017. 

Richard with Mark Harper, Shadow Minister for Disabled People and Huggy

I was joined recently by Mark Harper, Shadow Minister for Disabled People, who was visiting the area to learn more about access and other issues for the disabled.

Mark and I toured the Elisabeth Curtis Centre, which runs Riding for the Disabled.  Based in Bromham, the Centre, which is volunteer run, serves the needs of disabled and other special needs children from many areas across our county.

It was a great visit and a chance for me to learn more about the history of the centre and hear some of the stories of success and help from the volunteers.  Mark and I also got to meet a couple of the horses – Chunky and, pictured above, Huggy.
