Our incredibly hard working Harlow MP Robert Halfon has lived and worked in Harlow for over 10 years, and was elected Member of Parliament in 2010.
While he was brought up down the road in North London, his relative owned John Walton Clothes Shop that was in Harlow Town Centre for many years and opened by Arthur Askey in the 1950s.
Living in Harlow and like so many local residents Rob loves football and goes to Harlow Town F.C. occasionally, although he is a staunch Chelsea supporter. Rob also loves watches and has a huge collection.
Rob is a huge curry fan – the constituency has plenty of great curry houses. He reads loads of books and adores the countryside.
Rob enjoys travel too. He was privileged to go to Rwanda to teach English on a special project called Umubano (fellowship) – a moving and wonderful experience.
