Nevilles Cross takes in a long thin section to the west of the city centre area including Framwellgate and Crossgate and up to County Hall.
Local people are campaigning for a community centre and I support that campaign.
This area is also home to the Crossgate site of Durham Johnston School and the site of the new school buildings being constructed at the moment. As a Governor of this school, as a former parent at the school and as the MP I have campaigned for many years for the Building Schools for the Future funding for this rebuild, and I am really pleased that it is now happening.
A public meeting about Mount Oswald will be held at 5.30pm on the 22nd February in St Oswald's Hall, Church Street. Please come along.
