Pendle MP Andrew Stephenson was among representatives welcoming Prime Minister David Cameron to Barnoldswick today when he visited Hope Technology.

The Prime Minister was in Pendle in the afternoon having been in Lancashire for much of the day.

He toured Hope’s factory floor and met and chatted to staff who work for the company based on Calf Hall Road.

Mr Stephenson said: “I’m delighted that the Prime Minister accepted my invitation to come to Pendle and visit Hope to see an example of one of the great small-to-medium sized businesses we have in the borough.”
