In some good news, which demonstrates the kind of things MPs do locally and why it’s helpful to get in touch, I was contacted by a constituent who volunteers with the NHS but doesn’t receive the NHS discount that staff are entitled to at facilities like Graves Leisure Centre. I raised it with the Council and I’m pleased that they’ve announced a change in policy, meaning that NHS volunteers will now receive a 15 per cent discount, as well as all NHS staff. If you volunteer with the NHS, or know someone who does, give them a call on 0114 283 9900 to see what you might be entitled to.

I'm very pleased to have been elected a Vice Chair of the new All-Party Parliamentary Group on Fracking, following their meeting this month. I believe fracking will not solve our long term energy issues, has the potential for huge environmental harm, and its approval near Sheffield would have big local implications, including noise, traffic and pollution in Jordanthorpe.
