· 2020 and the start of 2021 has been difficult for all of us. The impact of the Covid-19 Global Pandemic has been incredibly changeling on many fronts.

· Represented Oldham on TV and radio platforms throughout the Covid-19 pandemic to ensure that not only Oldham receives fair funding but to highlight the importance of inequalities in our Town which have exacerbated the impact of the pandemic on our communities
