Standing up for Local People

My Diary w/e 5th June 2016

There are still 2 days left to register to be able to vote in the EU Referendum.  If you haven't already done so, please contact North Lincolnshire Council's Electoral Team on 01724 296245 for advice. 

I took advantage of the beautiful evening last night to walk down to the postbox and post my REMAIN vote. 

It was good to see that the overwhelming view at the Lincolnshire Directors' Dinner where I put the case for REMAIN in their EU debate was to stay in the EU.  It's not surprising with the vast majority of major employers like Seimens and Airbus making it clear that a vote to leave would damage their business.

On an excellent week for the steel industry with the relaunch of British Steel the last thing we need is the uncertainty that the risk of leaving the EU would bring.


It was a very exciting day joining a vast army of stakeholders in Scunthorpe Steelworks to see the British Steel flag raised and a new chapter in local steelmaking begin.  Full marks to everyone whose been involved in making this happen particularly the trade unions, workforce and suppliers as well as Greybull and Tata.


It was good to spend time learning about the exciting new plans for Ancora Medical Practice - the largest practice in North Lincolnshire that has 18,000 patients on its books - when I visited their Detuyll Street surgery.


Garners Pharmacy who work closely with Ancora are one of a number of community pharmacies that have contacted me with concerns about the impact the proposed Government cuts to their funding could have to provision.

It was good to visit the Co-op's Westcliffe Pharmacy to see for myself the sort of services that are provided.  It was very impressive to learn how well the local staff knew their customers and the sort of support that was available through the preparation of medicine trays and deliveries for the local community.

Finally I was delighted to join the police, fire and local council for the public drop in session at Greeson Hall as part of Operation Impact. 

Operation Impact has led to a heightened police presence in the centre of town for the last couple of weeks and has resulted in a number of arrests, a lot of intelligence as well as a lot of work making premises safer.
