James Frith, MP for Bury North, kicked off a programme of visits to the town’s top employers last week with visits to Bury Market and a local engineering firm. James plans to visit 50 local businesses over the course of the next six months.
James took a walk around Bury Market with Debbie Pierce, Managing Director of the world famous Bury Black Pudding Co., and Tony Hill of the Bury Market Traders Association. He stressed his support for the town’s fantastic market and its many businesses.
James also visited Rota Engineering, a manufacturing firm based in Bury which exports to 40 countries across the world.
“As the town’s new MP I want to get out and meet as many local employers as possible to understand their needs and how I can champion local business in Parliament. It was great to visit Rota Engineering, a remarkably successful firm with a global reach based right here in Bury, and meet with our brilliant market traders to discuss the challenges they face. Bury Market raised £1.2 million for Bury last year and I’ll be working with traders to explore ways to fund the renewal of our market. I am looking forward to getting out and meeting dozens of local employers in the coming weeks and months.”
