It was an honour to present Community Tech Aid with their Levelling Up Award for Closing the Digital Divide.
I’m making the most of the summer to get out and talk to people in the local community. Me and my team have organised a range of pop-up Streatham MP surgeries across the constituency to support people and businesses in our area towards the end of August and start of September.
It was great to join students from Saint Gabriel’s to listen to their presentations on the current situation in Colombia, where peaceful protesters have faced a brutal crackdown from the state.
On Windrush Day, Streatham celebrates the generation of migrants who came over from the Commonwealth after the war to help rebuild Britain.
It was great to catch up with the team over at High Trees Community Development Trust to discuss their efforts to tackle the digital divide.
I joined my colleague Helen Hayes for the grand reopening of the Brixton branch of Nationwide. It’s positive to see Nationwide Building Society investing locally at a time when many other banks are closing down local branches in our area.
