Most MPs turn up at village fetes and events to support the community and to be seen. In Chatham & Aylesford the MP takes it a stage further.
When the village of Wouldham advertised on its Facebook page for qualified 'first aiders' for their annual Village Fun Day, Tracey offered her services. Apparently a first aid qualification is required for all football coaches and managers, so she was well placed to do so.
Unfortunately on the day the goalie sustained an a nasty injury during the village football match. Just as the organisers were considering calling an ambulance, Tracey stepped in with an ice pack and a cold wet sponge. And judging by this exchange on Facebook her skills were appreciated...
You can just imagine the exchanges at future family re-unions as bored grandchildren try to look impressed as Grandad once again reminisces about how his life threatening sporting injury was treated by the then Minister for Sport.
