Ribble Valley is a rural constituency where agriculture plays an important part in the local economy, not only providing jobs but also continuing tradional communities where some families have farmed the same land for hundreds of years.
Public services are important to everyone, but in rural areas they take on a particular significance. In outlying villages doctors surgeries are further apart and often elderly residents face challenging journeys if current services close.
