Great to see the folks at the Wycliffe Bowls Club in Bitteswell on Saturday for their Open Day and the opening of their new Petanque Piste. ๐Ÿ…

The Club are always looking for new members so well worth constituents stopping by to try a new sport -

On #ArmedForcesDay we pay tribute to our extraordinary servicemen and women for their tireless work in keeping us all safe and defending freedoms around the world.

To all, at home and abroad, we thank you for your service. ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง

It was great to join @NadineDorries @AlbertoCostaMP & His Excellency Mr. Ioannis Raptakis at the APPG for Greece yesterday and launch their 'Taste of Greece' showcase!
A fantastic event, with great food, demonstrating the close ties between our two great nations.

A busy constituency surgery at my office in Blaby this evening, great to see constituents, as ever.

I was delighted to visit @MoviantoUK at Magna Park to thank them for their extraordinary work in rolling out the Covid vaccine.

They contributed to the huge success of the vaccination rollout, and I'm so proud to have them in South Leicestershire.

This morning I welcomed to the House of Commons, His Excellency Mr. Ioannis Raptakis, Ambassador for Greece. The meeting provided a good opportunity to discuss UK-Greece relations.

There was no ambrosia or nectar on the menu, but nobody complained. Dozens of British MPs and peers were served delicious Greek food & fine wine - and they loved it! Congrats #APPGGreece, GNTO UK and @GreeceinUK for a fantastic โ€˜Taste of Greeceโ€™ event in @UKParliament today!

1/ As Chair of the APPG Greece, it was a huge pleasure to host โ€˜A Taste of Greeceโ€™ in Parliament today, showcasing the very best of Greek cuisine.

Huge thanks to our speakers Ambassador Raptakis and @HuddlestonNigel and for all the MPs who came by including @NadineDorries. ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ท

Great to see our local MP @drlukeevans standing up for us. We have a local MP listening to our concerns and making sure we are heard loud and clear. Also thanks to @AlbertoCostaMP for the opportunity to share our concerns about the rail hub and the impact on our green spaces

With summer holidays fast approaching, British MPs had a chance to enjoy a "Taste of Greece" in the heart of London. The event was addressed by DCMS Minister of Tourism, @HuddlestonNigel, Greek Ambassador in UK @ioannisraptakis and chair of APPG for Greece @AlbertoCostaMP

Military personnel were invited to @10DowningStreet today where Prime Minister @BorisJohnson paid tribute to the Armed Forces community for #ArmedForcesWeek ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง

@LFRSLutterworth dealing with a Lorry fire within the Catthorpe interchange on the road to M6 Westbound joining from the A14. Multiple calls in to @LFRSFireControl. Travel safely. #unsunghero

This week I'm proud to be supporting #CervicalScreeningAwarenessWeek

Cervical screening (smear tests) can save lives, but 1 in 3 do not attend when invited. If you have any questions or concerns, the brilliant @JoTrust have helpful information, tips, and support for you.

A poignant flag raising ceremony was held in Market #Harborough today to mark the build-up to @ArmedForcesDay this weekend

Earlier today we raised the flag at our Narborough Offices in advance of #ArmedForcesDay on Saturday. Our Chair Cllr Hewson and Armed Forces Champion Cllr Jackson raised the flag to show our support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง

With temperatures peaking across South Leicestershire today, the fantastic folks at the @DogsTrust have some helpful advice for looking after our four legged friends.

Well worth constituents having a quick read and sharing with other dog owners. ๐ŸŒž๐Ÿถ

To coincide with the 40th anniversary of the liberation of the Falklands, I asked @FCDOGovUK Minister @amandamilling for her assurances that the UK will continue to stand with the people of the Falklands to protect their sovereignty and their right to self determination. ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ฐ

1/ Really pleased to have had the opportunity to raise my constituent's concerns about the Hinckley National Rail Freight Interchange in Parliament yesterday.

I informed the Rail Minister about the site's impact on the Fosse Villages, local environment & Narborough Station.

Today I called out the Leader of the Lib Dems, for his inaccuracy in understanding rural policies. @Conservative MPs understand rural issues and the complexities of our geography. The Lib Dems shown again to mislead and make up policies to suit their electioneering @TivHonTories

Plans for new national rail freight interchange at Hinckley debated in Parliament this afternoon. Trains greener than HGV and it would, say developers, create 8k jobs. Went to Burbage Common to find out what local people think. @AlbertoCostaMP @drlukeevans @politicseastmid @bb

On the 40th anniversary of the liberation of the Falkland Islands, we remember the 255 British service personnel who died to protect the sovereignty of the islands and their right to self-determination.

We will always stand firmly with the Falklands. ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ฐ#Falklands40
