GAME, SET, MATCH RYAN PENISTON!
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. 🎻☀️
Great news. It was good to visit Gabon a few weeks ago to see the country and understand its bid. Go 🇬🇧 🇬🇦 / 🇬🇧 🇹🇬 relations.
Pleased to see two new African Commonwealth members join; Togo 🇹🇬 and Gabon 🇬🇦. The interest of new members highlights the continued vitality of the Commonwealth family.
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. 🇬🇧🙏

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 unions👇🏿
Will be showing my support for the Don’t Face It Alone campaign today in Parliament and during #PMQs.
𝗡𝗼𝗯𝗼𝗱𝘆 𝘀𝗵𝗼𝘂𝗹𝗱 𝗳𝗮𝗰𝗲 𝗯𝘂𝗹𝗹𝘆𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗮𝗹𝗼𝗻𝗲 - such an important message, and you can find out more 👇👇
Trying to stay out of the limelight with a calming tie, (from Ghana if you are asking!)
The strikes today are wrong and unnecessary.
My pleasure! 🙌🙌 #MoreInCommon
👋 Thank you @JamesDuddridge for your support! #MoreInCommon
Join the Great Get Together this weekend ⬇️
Statement from Rochford and Southend East MP
@JamesDuddridge on today's industrial action:
1/4: "By pressing ahead with today’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 👇
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 year’s target is 50 miles! 🏃♂️⛈ @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. Let’s get this fixed @SouthendCityC! 🍃🍃
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. 🇫🇰🇬🇧

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. 🏃🏅
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. 👍
All set for Sunday's Southend Half Marathon! 🏃🙌🏅@HavensHosEvents #SouthendHalfMarathon
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 charity…
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 tonight’s vote will draw a line under these issues. #BackBoris

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

All households will get £400 off their October energy bills and the 8m most vulnerable households will get at least £1,200 of support to help with the cost of living this year.
A temporary Energy Profits Levy will help pay for this support and promote investment in our economy. https://twitter.com/RishiSunak/status/1529790556695674881
Alongside the action we’ve already taken this year today's measures will ensure:
The vast majority of households receive £550.
Pensioners receive £850.
And almost all of the eight million most vulnerable households will receive support of at least £1,200.
Just announced 👇
🚨 Last night, Labour & the Lib Dems voted against our Public Order Bill to stop dangerous protest tactics.
🚑 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. 🤝👍
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.
Well done to @willquince for his successful campaign to deliver another City status for Essex. Congratulations from the old City of Southend.
I am absolutely delighted that the UK's first Roman city has become one of the UK's newest cities as part of HM The Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations. Thank you for this great honour Your Majesty. #ColchesterCity #HM70
Wishing everyone taking their GCSE and A level exams across the country the very best of luck!
Great to hear live music at Warrior Square on the way to do some shopping on the high street. ☀️😎🌞
