Summers CafeBouncy castle

Summers Café, at Court Crescent Community Centre in Braunstone, recently held a brilliant family fun day. There was a DJ, bouncy castle, t-shirt tie-dying, and lots of delicious food and drink.

I had a great time chatting to local residents and Mel Magee and Kay Anderson, who run Summers Café. Mel and Kay are bringing together people of all ages, from all parts of the community, so they can get to know each other and have fun.

The tea party in full swing

On Saturday, I joined constituents, friends and colleagues for a Vintage Tea Party at Manor House. The event was organised by the local Labour Party and run by the brilliant How We Used to Tea company. I’d like to thank all those who came, making the event such a special occasion and I’d particularly like to thank Manor House’s Arthur Manager for organising the event.

I recently held the first meeting of a new Leicester West Business Forum, which I’ve set up to hear directly from businesses in my constituency about the challenges they face and the action they need to help them grow and thrive.

30 local businesses came along to the meeting, which took place at the Business Box in Braunstone. We had a very lively discussion focusing on bank lending, the need for public services to use the money they spend on supporting local businesses and the need to improve young people’s skills so that they are ‘work ready’ when they leave school.  I wrote about the Business Forum in my regular Mercury Column, which you can read here.
