Today is #ArmedForcesDay.

This is a day to pause, reflect and thank the tremendous men and women who make up the Armed Forces community, from serving troops and their families, veterans and cadets.

You can find out more about Armed Forces Day here -

A wonderful musical celebration is planned this evening in #Watford to mark #ArmedForcesDay2022.

There's a great list of speakers including @LBliss8, an RAF veteran and the Watford and District Veteran Support Group.

Please bring your own folding chair.

🗳 A busy day - 16 hours, 36k steps, hundreds of conversations with voters, 2 lifts given to infirm voters (one of whom would otherwise have missed voting for the first time in 70 years), and regardless of the result, a fine exercise in democracy. Good luck #HelenHurford!

Thanks @SophyRidgeSky @SkyNews for choosing my question as #PMQ of the week. I was grateful to be able to promote the @DianaAward #dontfaceitalone anti-bullying campaign backed by @10DowningStreet. Download useful tools & resources @AntiBullyingPro website

Whilst promoting the #dontfaceitalone campaign at #PMQs I was proud to pay tribute to @WatfordChamber & the amazing #MentalHealth First Aid trainers helping deliver my ambition to train a 1000 people across Watford in #MHFA awareness. Details - #ThankYou

Nobody should have to deal with bullying, but sadly thousands of young people experience it every day, both online and face to face.

I am grateful to @grantshapps for allowing my intervention about how the #RailStrikes will impact negatively on children taking their #gcses2022 and #alevels2022. These last two years have been incredibly difficult for our young people and the timing of the strike is not right.
