DAVID Cameron may have stepped down as Witney MP a year ago today, but that hasn’t stopped the Conservative from staying active.

He made the announcement on September 12 last year, just two months after resigning as Prime Minister following a defeat in the EU referendum.

At the time, Mr Cameron said he made the decision to prevent creating a ‘diversion’ to the important decisions that lay ahead for his successor Theresa May - a choice that appears to have enabled him to invest more time in Witney and the surrounding areas.

On Saturday, Mr Cameron declared he was ‘so proud to call West Oxfordshire home’ as he opened the doors to Charlbury’s new £2.5m community centre.

Last September, Mr Cameron sank a spade into the ground at the site, officially commencing the work.

As well as retaining involvement in the community, Mr Cameron has also taken on a number of charitable positions.

In January he took on the role of president of Alzheimer’s Research UK, and he is heavily involved with the National Citizenship Service.

However, it hasn’t all been work for the former leader of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Just last month, photographs from Wilderness Festival at Cornbury Park emerged showing the 50-year-old drinking, smoking and even hugging supporters of Jeremy Corbyn.
