Good fun visiting @MeccaSouthend recently to call a game of bingo. All for a good cause, with lots of money being raised for @decappeal in Ukraine as part of #NationalBingoDay.

Out delivering leaflets over the weekend... and not political ones for a change!

Do come along if you can: Music for a Summer Evening with the Deanery Orchestra on Saturday 9th July at St. Augustine's Church, in aid of @TheBHF. ๐ŸŽปโ˜€๏ธ

Today, the City of Southend came together to say thank you to the incredible men and women in our Armed Forces - past and present - for keeping us safe. ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ™

Today, I will table legislation that will give employers the freedom to recruit skilled, temporary staff to plug vital roles during strike action.

This new law will help protect the British public from future disruption caused by militant trade unions๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฟ

Statement from Rochford and Southend East MP
@JamesDuddridge on today's industrial action:

1/4: "By pressing ahead with todayโ€™s rail strikes, the unions have chosen to hit hardworking families in the pocket at the worst possible time."

Families are facing global cost of living pressures. Labour's response? Backing today's rail strikes.

Their union friends admit it will cost families, yet Labour won't condemn it ๐Ÿ‘‡

Great fun taking part in the #HARP24 challenge over the weekend. Lost a few hours due to thunder and torrential rain, however 38 miles covered in total. Next yearโ€™s target is 50 miles! ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธโ›ˆ @harpsouthend

Action is needed to sort the overgrown weeds that are becoming prolific in parts of Southend. Not only do they look unsightly, but they're a trip hazard too. Letโ€™s get this fixed @SouthendCityC! ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿƒ

Busy start to our public engagement event in Shoeburyness! We're at the Salvation Army hall in Frobisher Way until 8pm tonight, asking residents' views on options for Shoebury Health Centre's future site.

40 years ago today, the British Armed Forces liberated the Falkland Islands.

We will always remember the bravery and the sacrifices made to protect the sovereignty of the Falkland Islands. ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง

After 3 years, the Southend Half Marathon returned to #Southend yesterday! More than 1,500 runners braced the sunshine raising vital funds for local hospice care. Race results available here: https://results.sporthive.com/events/6941680831337369856 Photos: http://facebook.com/havensevents @HavensHospices @Utilize_PLC

A new #SouthendHalfMarathon medal to add to the collection! A warm run, but a great day and fantastic crowds. Thank you to @HavensHosEvents, local Cadets, marshals and all those who made it happen! Well done to everyone who also took part, raising money for @HavensHospices. ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ…

Good to sit down with the @PigsBaySouthend team today. This local distillery is the first of its kind in Southend, producing premium gins, vodka, liqueurs and rum right here in our city! Do give them your support if you can. ๐Ÿ‘

This is a government that delivers on what the people of this country care about most.

We are focused on uniting and levelling up across the country and unleashing the potential of the whole United Kingdom.

I supported the Prime Minister in the confidence vote. He won by a clear majority, which allows us to put the distraction of the past months behind us and focus on getting on with the job. (1/2)

Found this morning near Tower Hill. Message me if it is yours. Prove by saying what in it. Otherwise will donate the money to charityโ€ฆ

Busy day at in Westminster. Constituents on the train offering the PM their best in the vote tonight. We need to get on with the job and tonightโ€™s vote will draw a line under these issues. #BackBoris

As somebody who has taken on three rescue cats, itโ€™s always a pleasure to meet with the @Battersea_ team. ๐Ÿ˜บ๐Ÿถ

At a recent parliamentary event, I was updated on their latest work, including their pet-friendly properties campaign.

The bunting's out! ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง Southend is getting ready to celebrate. ๐Ÿ‘‘ #PlatinumJubilee #HM70 #JubileeReady

๐Ÿšจ Last night, Labour & the Lib Dems voted against our Public Order Bill to stop dangerous protest tactics.

๐Ÿš‘ Rather than side with law abiding majority, they chose a selfish minority blocking roads and emergency services.

Today I welcomed Minister for Small Business @scullyp to Rochford - where we visited the @PostOffice BankHub and met local businesses in Rochford Square too. ๐Ÿค๐Ÿ‘

We were delighted to welcome @scullyp and @JamesDuddridge to the BankHub in Rochford today to discuss how, by working with the banking industry, this innovative pilot branch has supported local communities and helped small businesses in the area.

Great to hear live music at Warrior Square on the way to do some shopping on the high street. โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŒž

Today's Full Council will see the election of Cllr Kevin Robinson as Southend's 101st Mayor. Cllr Robinson will take over from Cllr Margaret Borton who has served as the Mayor of both the Borough and City of Southend-on-Sea this year.

Watch from 3.30pm: https://orlo.uk/webcast_nuAD8
