New surgeries and Meet Your MP events

When elected as the MP for Holborn & St Pancras, I promised to be a community-facing accessible MP.

Since then I have been in touch with over 500 community groups, attended dozens of local meetings and spoken to thousands of constituents. I have also held very busy advice surgeries every fortnight.

I now want to step up a gear and pilot two further initiatives in order to make it easier for constituents to raise issues of concern with me.

First, I have organised a number of 'Meet Your MP' sessions, open to anyone in the constituency who wants to come along and say hello, raise any point they want with me or just to chat!

The first of these will take place in the Irish Centre in Camden Square on Monday 8th February, starting at 7:30pm. Another will be at the Marchmont Community Centre on Wednesday 2nd March at 7:30pm.

Second, in addition to my regular advice surgeries in the Town Hall and Roy Shaw Community Centre in Gospel Oak, I want to hold surgeries in other places across the constituency so that more people can reach me. My next surgery will therefore be at St Pancras Station (the Betjeman Statue Space, Upper Level) at 10am on 12th February. I will also be holding a surgery at 10am on 29th February at the West Euston Partnership One Stop Shop in Hampstead Road. Beyond that, I will be visiting a number of local schools and community groups where I will be holding drop-in sessions.

You do not need an appointment for these, and I hope as many constituents will come along as possible.
