It was a very different and much smaller meeting to discuss the Howard Kent site proposals at the Southwick Barn last Friday to the 200 odd standing room only event at Shoreham College earlier in the year.
Parliament returned this week after the summer recess and the hottest summer on record. Things are still hotting up in Westminster though as Brexit remains the dominant issue of the day – so situation normal then!
Given the lack of rain it was incredible that there were any entries at all at the Shoreham Horticultural Society Summer Show last week. But as usual the standard of the blooms was spectacular and always puts my garden to shame.
I am pleased to say that my Private Members Bill to extend civil partnerships, give greater protections against stillbirths and add the names of mothers on marriage certificates completed its committee stages in the Commons last Wednesday.
Everyone else may be stressing about everything Brexit at Westminster but I am focussed on the crucial committee stages of my Private Member’s Bill on civil partnerships, marriage registration and stillbirths.
