Julie, along with a number of volunteers including the local government candidate for Fulwell, Ken Richardson, spoke to residents in Fulwell this afternoon during a door-knocking session. Most weeks of the year, Labour Party volunteers and local Councillor Margaret Beck knock on doors across the ward to talk to people about their concerns.

"Whenever possible, I take time to speak with my constituents as I would not be able to carry out my role of representing them in Westminster if I was not aware of their concerns. Door-knocking sessions in particular mean that I can help constituents by listening to their concerns and subsequently doing all that I can as their MP to resolve any problems they may have."
