This week, after dropping into a regular coffee morning at St Patrick’s Church, Beaumont Leys Lane, Sarah Russell, Liz’s MP representative whilst she is on maternity leave, visited some of the fantastic activities available to young people during the school half term holidays. 

Sarah visited the Grove, in Braunstone Park, to see a sport and dance camp which has been organised by b-inspired, as well as the Braunstone Adventure Playground.

Last week Sarah also visited a pop-up pantry which provided food for families during the half term holiday. You can read more about that here

On Friday, Liz’s MP representative, Sarah Russell and the constituency team visited Inglehurst Junior School who have been focused on letter writing. A Year 6 pupil wrote to Liz to express their concerns about issues that meant a lot to them, including local wildlife, litter and economic growth.

Liz’s team met with the school’s pupil parliament during the visit. The pupils told the team about their recent visit to the Houses of Parliament and asked Sarah and the team some fantastic questions on topics ranging from the rise in energy prices and support available to families to the various types of support that Liz’s team offers to the constituents of Leicester West.

Last week Liz’s MP representative, Sarah Russell, attended a very busy Job Fair at the Welford Road Stadium to speak to employers and job seekers.

Last week I visited Barley Croft Primary School, in Beaumont Leys, where they held their Christmas Assembly.

Pupils and staff at the school also said goodbye to their headteacher, Kevin Lacey, after 14 years at the school. During his time as Head, Kevin has led the school to great success including improving its Ofsted rating from “Inadequate” to “Good”; overseeing a full refurbishment of the school; and developing a culture where children are inspired to enjoy learning, so they achieve their best.

I am really sorry to be saying goodbye to Kevin. He has been an absolutely inspirational Head, and I have loved seeing the fantastic, innovative way he has helped children engage with learning. I know how hard he has worked, and how much he has put into the school, so I wish him the very best on his retirement.
