I'M BACKING RIGERTA
I first met Rigerta through her role at Meaningful Education, based at
Sandringham Hub, where she was supporting local youth initiatives. Her passion, principles and energy are brought to everything she does. This inspired me and continues to inspire me every day. I look forward to working with her for a better future for Houghton Regis.
