Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Anna Soubry MP

Merry Christmas
and a Happy New Year
 Anna and the team

Mike Johnson has won this year’s Christmas card competition with his photograph of people sledging in King George’s Park, Bramcote.  My thanks to all the entrants and congratulations to the runners-up Steve Adams and Chris Davis.  Bramcote resident Mike, is a keen photographer and I think his combination of a wintry scene with St Michael’s Church in the background captures much of what Christmas means for many people. People of all faiths and none celebrate and enjoy Christmas. It is worth remembering that this is the season of peace and goodwill to all men and women and I hope those sentiments continue throughout 2018.

Homelessness happens to ordinary people!

It can be devastating to the lives of those who experience it. There are long-term consequences beyond housing: physical and mental health, financial stability, education, employment and self-esteem are all affected. Broxtowe Youth Homelessness is a local charity based on Church Walk in Stapleford. We have been working for 34 years to prevent homelessness and support homeless young people.

We provide practical and emotional support to 16-25 year olds who are at risk of homelessness or have been homeless – offering the help they need to rebuild their lives.
Everyone has a different story – we offer the support needed by each individual. This might be providing clothing, food and toiletries, helping them settle into their first home, giving advice and making referrals, helping them gain qualifications through our training programme, or simply by being a friendly face to turn to in times of need.

News from Anna Soubry MP

Hello again,  I have warmly welcomed the early morning deal secured by the Prime Minister and the EU. By making it clear there will be no hard border in Northern Ireland and that any future trade deal or arrangement will cover the entire UK, I believe we have taken important steps away from a hard Brexit and towards maintaining the benefits of the existing Customs Union and Single Market, after we have left the EU. That is good news for British business and so it is good news for all of us.

Finally; the blue skies and sunshine is welcome but it’s blooming cold! If you have an elderly neighbour please check they are warm and well.
As ever,  Anna Continue reading
