MEET THE LABOUR MP CANDIDATE

Veronica Oakeshott is an experienced campaigner and former councillor who’s known Eynsham since childhood.

Eynsham is a special place to me. When my parents were dating (or in those days ‘courting’) my dad used to walk all the way from Eynsham to Stonesfield to see my mum. And when I was a little girl I used to visit my grandpa here. It's such a beautiful village, full of brilliant people who care about preserving its history and defining its future.

I feel so lucky to live just up the road in Kidlington now. But I have experienced a lot of the difficulties faced by so many of us here. As a mum of young kids in a local primary school, and a carer for my late mother, I’ve experienced how NHS services and social care systems are on their knees. And I know many other parents struggling to get the educational support their kids need. We, our children - and our dedicated teachers, medical and caring staff - deserve better.

This is why we need change.

I will work to deliver results for you in Eynsham. I want you to be able to see a doctor when you need, visit an NHS dentist and get that hospital appointment you’ve been waiting for. As the partner of someone who runs a local small business, I want a stable economy run by grown ups. And I want to bring the cost of living back under control - so everyone can afford their weekly shop and energy bills.

Many people in Eynsham tell me they want the Tories out, and a Labour government that can deliver change. I’ve got a track record of getting things done. Whether its changing the law on domestic abuse, or sorting out someone’s parking concerns, I’ve done it. No one expects the next years to be easy, but it will be a whole lot easier to win change for you when the Ministers we need to persuade are colleagues with whom I’ve campaigned for decades.

Our new Bicester and Woodstock constituency (which includes Eynsham, Cassington and Kidlington) has literally reset the boundaries - there is no existing MP for this seat. The majority of polls released this year show that Labour are in the best position to beat the Tories here. 

Vote for me and I will work to make change happen for Eynsham.
