Visit to RAFT 2017

We have wonderful charities on the Mount Vernon site.

It was a great pleasure to visit both Michael Sobell Hospice, and RAFT, who do extraordinary work to help rebuild lives after major trauma.

Pinner Village Show

The Pinner Village Show this year was blessed with much better weather than last year, and I was delighted to open it again.

The Rotary Club deserve great credit for organizing it and it was good to see such big crowds.

NCS Visit Summer 2017

I am very proud of having led the team that set up National Citizen Service, (NCS) which is funded by Government. This is a wonderful experience for young people aged 15-17, that helps them build their confidence and develop skills that will be very useful for them in life and work. Across the country, more than 275,000 young people have taken part. In Hillingdon, the number has grown to 800 a year from scratch in 2011. It was a huge pleasure to spend some time with the 2017 Hillingdon cohorts and hear their plans for community projects. Congratulations to everyone for stepping up.
