HIGH PEAK MP Andrew Bingham has been named MP of the Month by Total Politics magazine in recognition of the success of his Small Business Day held in September.
The event, held in the Pavilion Gardens, Buxton on September 7, was organised by Andrew to help small businesses get help and advice that they might not otherwise have had access to.
Andrew said: “Obviously I’m very pleased that the event has been recognised by Total Politics, but what really matters is that the day was so useful to all the businesses that attended.
“I’ve had lots of businesses tell me since the event how much use it was to them, and I’ve also been contacted by other MPs wanting to do a similar thing in their constituencies.
“The main thing is that I was able to help High Peak businesses.
“Having owned a small business myself I’m keen to do anything I can to help others, especially in the current difficult economic climate.”
Andrew features in the November issue of Total Politics magazine, which is out now.
