It was lovely to meet Chris Skidmore, this week, the MP for Hanham, when he came to see us at Kift Lodge, our gorgeous retirement house on Memorial Road, Hanham.

Mr Skidmore had a great time meeting several of our residents one-to-one, and then chatting to a large group over coffee.

Residents enjoyed listening to Mr Skidmore explaining about his background, how he got into politics, and what his day-to-day life, as an MP, is like. Fascinating stuff! We all asked lots of questions and Mr Skidmore also promised to help residents with any constituency issues.

“It was great to have the chance to show Mr Skidmore around the house with duty manager, Michelle, and lovely to hear him singing its praises afterwards”, said Abbeyfield Bristol & Keynsham chief executive Frances Stretton, “he loved the house and gardens.”
