People in Holt should still have a physical counter to go to for their banking beyond December 9 - at least for part of the week. https://www.northnorfolknews.co.uk/news/business/barclays-open-counter-holt-9111288

More justice for our Post Masters again this morning. It is enormously welcome that the gov is bringing compensation to those affected, my ask was to look seriously at the remuneration structure for our POs. Too many leave the High Street because the pay is simply not enough.

Yesterday I met with local councillors and Barclays to discuss the last Bank closure in Holt. It is imperative that we have an external cash point in the town and a decent physical presence where local people can still access their banking services. Both we are working towards.

Brave men and women who have served with the British military over the ages were remembered and celebrated at an Armed Forces Day event in Northrepps. https://www.northnorfolknews.co.uk/news/northrepps-armed-forces-day-2022-9102674

Talking to @ITVEmmaH today about the issues with high numbers of second homes in North Norfolk. Many changes coming down the tracks to a complex problem with no silver bullet. Taxation, Council tax and Planning class changes all in the mix to tackle a chronic issue for so many.

🏃‍♂️ Six miles before breakfast!

🇺🇦❤️ We’re back on for the #26milesfor26charities London marathon bid where we’re raising 3️⃣0️⃣,0️⃣0️⃣0️⃣ for North Norfolk, local good causes!

👍 The draw for the chosen charities is this Friday morning at the Holt Youth Project.

THE Lib Dems have been branded "shamelesly hypocritical" after their new MP put down a Bill to cut fuel duty but the party's own "green" policy would increase it by 12p a litre… 🤥

Better Mental Health support for people in crisis.

👍 Today I raised in Parliament my campaign to keep improving mental health services in North Norfolk and my aim to get more facilities at Cromer Hospital.

People experiencing a mental health emergency will benefit from £150 million investment for services including new mental health ambulances & crisis hubs.

This will help provide specialised mental health care in the community and improve response times for people in crisis 🔽

Beautiful day at the Aldborough village fayre. Met these real community heroes raising money for Ukraine and driving aid to the country. After some relative peace, Kyiv, where Anna and Sviatik live, was attacked with another 14 missiles. Understandably a sombre mood in our house.

Intervening on the application was right. The current proposed new build for M&S takes no account of the embodied carbon implications. A comprehensive retrofit (including extensions and modern energy performance standards) would be far better. https://mol.im/a/10951985

🇬🇧 On Armed Forces Day it was brilliant to support the Poppyland RBL branch in Northrepps. Huge numbers of veterans attending displaying so much memorabilia. Our country cannot thank those past and present service men and women, for all you have done to protect us.

🇺🇦❤️🇬🇧 Love getting home to these guys playing together. Issy has been teaching Sviatik to ride her bike this week. Looks like there’s going to be a lot of family bike rides this Summer ☀️

A new Bill of Rights has been introduced to the @HouseOfCommons today. It will replace the Human Rights Act & strike a better balance between individuals’ rights, personal responsibility & the public interest.

Hear from @DominicRaab on the key measures in the Bill.

#HumanRights https://twitter.com/DominicRaab/status/1539557691978285062

Dominic Raab @DominicRaab

Our modern Bill of Rights will strengthen the UK tradition of freedom of speech, and better protect the public from dangerous criminals.

We are restoring a health dose of common sense into the justice system. ⤵

A feud between North Norfolk's MP and its local council has flared up again after Duncan Baker criticised what he described as "extraordinary goings-on" at the authority. https://www.edp24.co.uk/news/local-council/duncan-baker-north-norfolk-mp-contract-backdating-concerns-9037410

Looking forward to seeing everyone on Saturday @WWLRNorfolk Come & join in the fun @norfolkthai @katering4u @WhinHillCider Guest locos, driver for a fiver, fire engine, arts & crafts

Worth a read… In two weeks the Government has given us the housing policy people have needed for years - inews, 👇 https://apple.news/AGCRMJloNRSiACASRmeBD_Q

🇺🇦 Rather special to have held a piece of “Dream” last night. Destroyed 3 days after the Russians invaded. It was the largest plane ever built and is now a symbol of hope - a reminder of the endless and senseless destruction that this appalling war has wreaked all over Ukraine.

A Nobel Peace Prize that Russian journalist Dmitry Muratov was auctioning off to raise money for Ukrainian child refugees has sold for $103.5 million. Before this, the most ever paid for a Nobel Prize medal was $4.76 million. http://apne.ws/fhR7X6f

We will continue to build on our work so far – from Syria to Ukraine – to help those in genuine need of resettlement to come here safely & legally.

Our #NewPlanForImmigration will create a fairer system that can better support those in genuine need of refuge.

#WorldRefugeeDay

As #ArmedForcesWeek gets underway, we are determined to make the 🇬🇧 the best place in the world to be a military veteran. That means investment 💷 in specialist healthcare and employment opportunities.

The government are evidently keen to prevent a damaging wage-price spiral.

And it's easy to see why - the union movement's pay bargaining in the 1970s contributed towards pushing inflation up over 20%.

Acquiescing to all union demands today clearly risks a similar crisis.

🏃‍♂️ It’s not long now. Please keep nominating those local charities! You have until the end of June!

❤️ After setting out to raise £26,000 for 26 local charities last year, we ended up raising £38,000 by running the London Marathon.

🇬🇧 An absolutely incredible event in Cromer Church this afternoon to thank everyone involved in the mesmerising 4,500 ceramic cascading poppy display, which was in place over the Jubilee.

An incredibly proud moment for the whole town. I can’t thank the volunteers all enough.

Happy Father’s Day.

Enjoying the sunshine and supporting Greshfest.

This morning it was a privilege to attend the Cromer Church Service and pray for so many Fathers and children who for so many reasons will not be able to see their loved ones today. You are in our thoughts.❤️

We shall not forget the thousands of men, women and children who are being killed every day in Putin’s war of aggression.

The UK will work tirelessly with our allies to bring enduring peace to the people of Ukraine.

⚽️ Back of the net! All for a good cause celebrating Hindringham Primary School’s 60th Anniversary this morning. Beat the Headmaster in the 60 second goal challenge. Banged in 10, happy with that! Rolling back the years!!

🇺🇦 Lovely meeting some more Ukrainian families at the Sheringham get together tonight. Really great to put faces to the people we’ve been helping to settle in North Norfolk. Great event, great fun and thank you to all who put it together 👍

☀️ Hot day but still lots of trips around the patch! This morning it was on the Weybourne platform of the incredible @nnrailway. Hearing of their future plans and giving a big CONGRATULATIONS for their volunteers who received the Queen’s award for voluntary services. Amazing 👏🙏

Dentistry in Norfolk has been in crisis for years but now a solution could have been found, as government ministers agree to look at proposals for the region. https://www.edp24.co.uk/news/health/dentistry-norfolk-desert-uea-school-backlog-9042738

We will never tire of defending freedom and democracy.

The UK stands with Ukraine for the long haul.

North Norfolk MP Duncan Baker has welcomed a North Yorkshire town's efforts to raise the issue of second homes after residents voted to restrict the sale of new-build properties. https://www.northnorfolknews.co.uk/news/housing/north-norfolk-second-homes-referendum-9038736

Probably the best meeting we’ve had so far in urging the government to help the dentistry crisis in Norfolk. Today, I pulled together all the Norfolk NHS heads and the UEA, who made a compelling case to the Dentistry Minister. We need a training school at the UEA! 👍

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

Meeting with the Exchequer Secretary to the Treasury to continue lobbying for help in the Winter time for those rural communities that are dependent on heating oil. We know the costs have risen proportionately faster than gas and as such we need a an urgent plan to address this.

Fuel prices⛽️

I’ve asked the @CMAgovUK to conduct an urgent review of the retail fuel market, as well as a longer-term investigation under the Enterprise Act.

Fuel prices are always quick to go up but slow to come down - let’s see why.

10 days until #GreshFest22! Head along to Theatre In The Woods at @Greshams_School on 18-19 June to see Norfolk Young Musicians play Classic Ibiza live with @UrbanSoulOrch, join the Virtual Big Sing 2022 and enjoy a real festival atmosphere!

After the washout of last week, back to North Walsham for their Jubilee fete and fundraising for play equipment throughout the town for North Walsham play. Beautiful sunshine, and we’ll down the town council for putting this on!
