Member of Parliament for South Leicestershire, Alberto Costa, has hailed the success of his latest supermarket constituency surgery, held at the Waitrose supermarket in Lutterworth last Friday afternoon.
Alberto, who has previously held constituency surgeries in the Morrisons supermarket in Lutterworth as well as Sainsbury’s and Asda at Fosse Park, contacted Waitrose to utilise their store for a further opportunity to engage with constituents.
Alberto said, “As always, it was a real pleasure to see so many constituents at my latest ‘supermarket surgery’ at the Waitrose branch in Lutterworth on Friday afternoon. Constituency surgeries provide an excellent means of meeting constituents to discuss any concerns or queries they might have, and the supermarket surgery is very much a marriage of convenience; allowing constituents to see their MP in a more relaxed, informal setting with no appointments necessary, and of course it provides a great opportunity to do some extra shopping too”.
Alberto added, “I always strive to make it as easy as possible for constituents to see me or to get in touch so I will certainly be doing further ‘supermarket surgeries’, in addition to my regular surgeries, in the future. I am also very grateful to Steve, the Store Manager, and the other excellent staff at the Waitrose in Lutterworth for their hospitality; their time and assistance is a real testament to Waitrose’s commitment to engage with the local community”.
