News from Anna Soubry MP – 16 November 2018

Hello again,
As the political storm clouds continue to gather in Westminster, it is a particular pleasure to be back in the constituency. There are all manner of events taking place this weekend and I want to give a special mention to the Classical Oxjam concert in Beeston tomorrow night.
Have a lovely weekend,
Anna

Supporting full access at Beeston Station

I have given my full support to Network Rail’s bid to make Beeston Station accessible to everyone. They have applied to the Government’s Access For All scheme which has set aside £300 million for station improvements. Please read my letter here .

 

Kimberley Flash Mob

Kimberley Primary School raised money for Children in Need by holding a flash mob performance in the town’s Sainsbury’s car park. Their excellent song and dance is so good they will be performing it again on BBC East Midlands Children in Need at 7.45pm.

Marking Parliament Week

This year’s Parliament week celebrated the centenary of the first group of women to get the vote. I had my photograph taken with a Lego Suffragette! In all seriousness, this annual event gives many youngsters in particular the opportunity to learn more about democracy and how Parliament works. I was delighted to attend last night’s meeting of the 5th Wollaton Brownies and discuss my work as an MP.

 

Broxtowe Remembers

Record crowds turned out on Rememberance Sunday across the constituency. I attended the Civic service in Beeston along with soldiers from Chetwynd Barracks. Churches throughout Broxtowe laid on remarkably stunning tributes marking the centenary of the end of World War 1. St Patrick’s in Nuthall had a particularly moving series of displays from parishioners and local children.

I unveiled a Roll of Honour plaque at the former Kimberley Brewery which records the employees who served in World War 1. My thanks to Steve Midgeley from developers Fairgrove Homes for replicating the original. A series of events in and around Greasley concluded with an evening service at St Mary’s. I unveiled a Roll of Honour plaque at the former Kimberley Brewery which records the employees who served in World War 1.
