I joined a group of parents at Eastbrook Primary Academy last Friday for an online safety workshop organised jointly by the NSPCC and O2. It was both informative and alarming and many concerned parents came away fired up to do more to find out what their children are up to online.
I hosted a discussion event in Parliament recently to discuss the issue of street harassment and to support the launch of Plan International UK's #ISayItsNotOK campaign, which calls on the government to recognise harassment in public as a form of gender-based violence.
I have pledged my support to the Long Live the Local Campaign to help pubs in East Worthing and Shoreham keep their doors open, joining more than 100,000 people who have signed the petition so far, including 224 in East Worthing and Shoreham.
Parliament returned from the conference recess this week and we have a busy few weeks ahead of us as (hopefully) Brexit negotiations edge towards some sort of end point, and the Budget has been announced for October 29th.
I was obviously disappointed that the Adur Planning Committee saw fit to approve the New Monks farm planning application not least when so many questions remain about the sustainability of siting IKEA on the busiest road in the area.
Delighted to attend the launch of Worthing’s Mental Health Awareness Week yesterday, where I was joined by local cadets for special presentation on mental health and veterans #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek
I spoke with the charity Guide Dogs at the Conservative Party conference about the challenges pavement parked cars create for blind and partially sighted people, who may have to risk their safety by walking into the road just to get by.
I am very disappointed that the Adur Planning Committee last night caved into the enormous pressure they had been under to approve the plans for New Monks Farm and particularly the inclusion of IKEA, which can only impact hugely on the heavily congested A27.
