Local MP Stephen Phillips recently opened the new premises of Butlers, formerly Ray Butler Limited, at Lions House in Sleaford. The business, now run by Matt and Kate Cook, has grown in recent years, necessitating larger offices, and was this year awarded Business of the Year at the Sleaford Town Awards 2015. Stephen met with many of the staff, had a tour of the new showroom and premises, and cut the official blue ribbon. Stephen said: "I am extremely proud of successful local businesses like Butlers – they show off the best of Lincolnshire's entrepreneurial spirit and provide great job opportunities for local people. These businesses are the lifeblood of our economy here and across Britain. I am honoured to have been asked to open the new premises, and I wish Butlers many more years of success!"
As one of his last acts in support of local businesses in the week that Parliament is dissolved, Stephen Phillips QC MP this week welcomed businessman Troy Phillips to Westminster, together with Chief Ronene Anda – head of the Transit Security Division for Los Angeles County – and two of her colleagues. Troy's company, Electronic Warfare Solutions, is based in Long Bennington in the Sleaford and North Hykeham Constituency but has a global reach filling contracts all over the world, including with Chief Anda's team and the LA Bomb Squad to build capacity and tactical capability. Speaking in Westminster Hall, Stephen said, "I am very proud that a local business like Troy's is having such global success. He and his staff have in-depth knowledge of their field and are exporting their skills all over the world showing the very best of what Britain has to offer."
Kesteven Children in Need is a locally based charity supporting children throughout North and South Kesteven within their home and school environments. The charity keeps children safe, away from harm and encourages normal healthy development, often dealing with issues such as drugs, alcohol abuse, unemployment, divorce and underage pregnancies. The valuable work the charity does was recognised by local Conservatives across the Sleaford and North Hykeham constituency the year as they raised funds to help with the important work the charity does. Last week, local MP Stephen Phillips handed over a cheque for £475 to fundraiser Mrs Alexandra Howard following a number of events throughout the constituency. Commenting, Stephen said, "The work done by Kesteven Children in Need is much in demand and hugely important. Every child deserves the best start in life and we have all been thrilled to do our bit by trying to raise money for the charity in the last year."
