Member of Parliament
Andrew lives in Colne, in the heart of Pendle, and was elected to represent Pendle in Parliament on 6th May 2010. Before being elected to Parliament he was a self-employed insurance consultant running a small business in Greater Manchester. The pressures of working six days a week and running a business in the current economic climate ensured Andrew was well aware of the pressures small businessmen across Pendle face.
Andrew is involved in numerous community groups across Pendle and serves as a school governor at an infant school in Nelson. In his spare time he enjoys walking and in 2008 he took part in a trek along the Great Wall of China personally raising over £5,000 for charity.
