I welcome the exciting developments in local transport

Recently, we have seen a number of announcement concerning the improvement of transport in and around our town. In this week’s newspapers it had been announced that Southend Borough Council is supporting a new relief road to the east of the town.

It is time to think about the future

Now that both the A level results and the GCSE results have come out it’s clear to see just how well our schools have done. The hard work that our local students have put in really paid off and I am sure so many of them are thrilled with what they have achieved.

I learn a lot when I am out and about in the constituency

Helping with the mail sorting process at Short Street sorting office and personally delivering post throughout the constituency, I learnt a lot on Friday. I have a greater appreciation for our postal workers and the postal service they provide us daily.

Make sure you have the right insurance before you go on holiday

With such great weather now, one would ask why leave Southend?  With the start of school holidays, a lot of families are jetting off to shores far and near.

These can be some of the most enriching experiences. Allowing us to experience new cultures, new foods and new environments.
