Penny Mordaunt MP hits the campaign trail in Paulsgrove

I welcome the investment from the Conservative run council in Portsmouth. For too long the north of the city was starved of cash. I'm pleased to see that this is being addressed and that money is finally coming into the north to regenerate community facilities, green spaces and business too.

There's more work to be done, but together we can continue to ensure that the north of the city see's its fair share of cash and attention.

Penny Mordaunt MP previews new ‘D-Day Story’ museum

Penny Mordaunt MP visited the soon to be open revamped £5million D-Day museum. The new D-Day museum will be known as the ‘D-Day Story’ with a focus on the events of D-Day being told in a new and innovative way. At the heart of the museum’s collection is the historic 83-metre Overlord Embroidery, an art textile inspired in part by the 11th century Bayeux Tapestry.
