The advice clinic is an opportunity for anyone to drop-in and have an informal talk about any issues with him.

Mr Jones said: “It is important for an MP to have an open door to all constituents because it is the public for whom MP’s work.

"That is why I meet constituents at my office week-in week-out to address any issues they may have.

“But I realise that people often can’t make it to fixed appointments and so being at community events is great because people can just walk up and have a chat.

"It is also good to be helping support the Starbeck Christmas lights team and I hope as many people as possible can make it on Saturday afternoon to raise some money to make Starbeck sparkle this Christmas.”

Mr Jones also runs more formal surgeries several times a month and these can be booked by contacting his office on 01423 529614 or emailing him at [email protected] with your contact details.
