⚠️The Arun Valley line is entirely closed today. For the RMT to inflict a strike on local teachers and students during exams, NHS staff working to clear COVID backlogs and commuters and small businesses growing the economy is a monumental act of self-harm to our railways.🚃

Happy #SussexDay! An opportunity to celebrate our wonderful county, its history, natural beauty, community, and culture.

I am always proud to represent all Sussex has to offer alongside my fellow Sussex MPs in Westminster.

“Delighted that this puts Sussex Wine in its rightful place alongside some of the worlds finest products. It is the conclusion of a long campaign by myself and other Sussex MP’s and is a real boon to the growing producer economy across Sussex.” https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/politics/18887689/sussex-wine-protected-tipple-brexit-boost/

Great to welcome Andrew Griffith MP @griffitha to the CLA breakfast @SouthEngShows & hear about the govt’s approach to #LevellingUp in #rural areas. Good news that the CLA’s proposals for making it easier to convert old ag buildings into much needed rural homes have been heard!

It’s been a really busy morning @SouthEngShows and great to be back here, in the sun. Please do join us this afternoon for drinks and our awards presentation @CLAtweets #CLA @BatchellerMonk @WarnersLaw @lhickish #southofengland #sussex @singinghen @griffitha @FWAGAssoc

The Chalkhill Blue is an iconic species of the South Downs.

It's preferred habitat is chalk grassland. However, they are now officially 'vulnerable', meaning chalk grassland restoration is more vital than ever before.

Congratulations to all those involved in lighting beacons across West Sussex
for the #PlatinumJubilee. This beaut was on Duncton Downs. https://www.instagram.com/p/CeZWNVvrgut/?igshid=YTgzYjQ4ZTY=

Don’t lose your licence on #PlatinumJubilee weekend by speeding in West Sussex.

Thank you @sussex_police @KatyBourne and #CW164 for your work on #OperationDownsway out on the A285, A272, A283 and A29 today.

Welcoming 🇺🇦Ukrainian MP, @lesiavasylenko to #ArundelandSouthdowns today.

Today is a sad #100DaysOfWar milestone in Ukraine. Imperative that the World stands solid on the side of the territorial integrity of Ukraine.

20% of #Ukraine = 125 000 km2. That’s like 3 Switzerlands🇨🇭Or more than half of the UK 🇬🇧 People live that land. Homes are built there. So next time you ask why Ukraine won’t cede territory for peace, ask first if you’d be ok to give up 120K km2 of your country

A real privilege to be at Trooping the Colour on Horseguards Parade in London this morning as part of
#PlatinumJubilee. A historic moment and an incredible display of attention to detail and horsemanship.

Good chat with Sally, Karen & Nik from Worthing & District Community First Responders at the @AngmeringParish meeting this week. CFRs are all volunteer members of their local community who are trained to respond to emergency calls in conjunction with the Ambulance Service. 👏👏👏

UPDATE: There are 10,000+ more nurses working in the NHS than last year. 📈

Also record numbers of doctors, nurses & NHS staff overall.

Thanks to all NHS staff for your dedication in caring for our loved ones & tackling the Covid backlog.

Fantastic to be back in the North East today.

This government is levelling up every part of the country, transforming our towns and cities into thriving places where people are proud to live and work.

I hope everyone will join me today in celebrating the importance of our teachers 👩🏽‍🏫🧑🏻‍🏫👨🏿‍🏫

In schools, colleges and early years, our incredible teachers have a lasting impact on young people. Thank you for all you do to support and shape the next generation.

I have written to every school in England, urging those yet to offer tutoring to make sure they do so as soon as possible 📚🏫👩🏽‍🏫

Promising @ONS statistics show knife crime and neighbourhood crime figures falling.

By tackling the causes of crime, recruiting more police, and introducing tougher sentences, we are doing everything we can to make our streets safer.

@smallrobotco are also building modular robots to provide more scalable, adaptable and faster developed products👌

They're also constantly making their robots faster, cheaper and more reliable to further increase their value add, as shown below😁
