Nick Fletcher

Member of Parliament for Don Valley



Nick Fletcher has lived in Doncaster his entire life. Educated at Armthorpe Comprehensive, he went on to get an HNC in Electrical Electronic Engineering, and used this qualification to spark a career as an electrician. In 1994, he set up his own business which has been running ever since, although he admitted in his acceptance speech that he might not be able to spend too much time at his business in the next few years. He was chair of the Doncaster Conservative Association when he overturned Labour’s 97 year majority, becoming the first ever Conservative MP representing the constituency. In his 2020 maiden speech, he focused on the importance of role models for young people. He named Christ as the greatest role model and described his own election victory as a “nothing short of a miracle”. He also emphasised the importance of young people making “the right decisions” early on. He is an officer for the APPG on skills and employment. Since 2020, he has been on the Petitions Committee. Fletcher has campaigned for an electrical appliances register (post-Grenfell) and has warned of child exposure to violent online pornography.
