Final visit of the day was to Oaktree Park in Allington Lane to discuss some long standing issues in the area. Great community spirit!

A brilliant visit to Stoneham Park Primary Academy to see their new school and PE groups. School visits always put a smile on my face!

I’ll be holding a constituency pop up surgery in Hamble tomorrow. 10.30-11.30 at the waterfront. Please do pop by if you want a chat!

As part of World Refugee Week, I met my constituent Nasir in Parliament to share his experiences. Nasir left Afghanistan with family last year as the Taliban were surging across the country, has settled in Eastleigh. It was an honour and I look forward to helping him in future.

I’ll be holding a constituency pop up surgeries in Hamble, Eastleigh, and Hedge End over the coming weeks. Please email Paul.holmes.mp@parliament.uk or call 02382 542205 for an appointment so you can reserve a time.

Good afternoons street surgery in West End. More to follow. Housing, social policy and flooding all raised. Thanks for coming.

I’ll be holding a constituency pop up surgery in West End on Friday 10th June. 3-4pm. Please email Paul.holmes.mp@parliament.uk or call 02382 542205 for an appointment so you can reserve time.

This is a lovely video from @1_Comm about the #PlatinumJubilee Community Showcase in #Eastleigh on Saturday. What a splendid day to learn more about the valuable work that so many #volunteers and #community groups do in our area. @pauljholmes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bLRhBuekAvA

Had a great time with Eastleigh Guide Dogs yesterday at the Jubilee celebration. Gr8 to chat to @pauljholmes & @1_Comm about all things #GuideDogs; volunteering, fundraising and campaigns. Look forward to continuing the conversation @GuideDogsSW

Just contributed to the Fair Oak Time Capsule burial in Knowle Park. To be opened in 70 years time! Thanks for the local parish council for organising this unique event. -#Jubilee

Another fabulous event in Eastleigh organised by @1_Comm - the Eastleigh Jubilee showcase. So many fab organisations coming together- great event with great people. Honoured to have opened it with @eastleighmayor .

Plenty of people out at the Platium Jubilee event in #Eastleigh good to see @eastleighmayor Adam Manning and @pauljholmes getting things going.
Big shout out to @1_Comm and everyone else for organising.

Lovely to open the Botley Mills Summer Fayre this morning at the fab Botley Mills. Lots of people attending. Get down and pay a visit.

Brilliant evening looking across the gorgeous landscape at Knowle Park with Cllr Steve Broomfield for the Jubilee Beacon lighting in Fair Oak. Well done to Fair Oak Parish Council for organising and the hundreds who attended! #JubileeCelebration

#PlatinumJubilee fun at Butlock’s Heath Recreation Ground to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen and her glorious seventy year reign! Kind of @pauljholmes to visit us. Well done @HoundPC for organising such a wonderful day!

We're keeping our fingers crossed for great weather on Thursday (and the days before so the ground isn't wet!) and are looking forward to welcoming parishioners to our Community Fun Day.

A beautiful idea at St James Church in West End. Wedding dresses through the ages of HMs reign. As well as a lovely flower show and coffee morning. This dress with original box is from 1938- a bit early but still gorgeous nonetheless. #Jubilee

Good to greet and thank all for coming to the Butlocks Heath Rec Ground Jubilee Fayre organised by @HoundPC. The @eastleighmayor was on top form! Thanks to the local community for coming together! #Jubilee

Lots of good local #jubileeweekend events going on across Eastleigh. Here are some for the three days ahead. Pop along and support. Details 👇

Congratulations Bradford on becoming #CityofCulture2025 Very disappointed for Southampton but the team have much to be proud of. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, levelling up is about opportunity not geography. This evening it looked like geography again. Not good enough.

Delighted to visit @ssencommunity site to see upgrade work underway to prepare our local electricity network for a net zero carbon future. We have less than 1,400 electric vehicle charge points installed on Eastleigh streets today but over 18,000 expected by 2030. Lots to be done

We're sending commiserations to our friends @southampton2025 -
despite their superb #CityofCulture2025 bid that we were proud to support #Southampton2025.

We March On.

Despite the result this evening, our ambition to Make it SO lives on. We remain committed to an ambitious vision for Southampton with culture at its heart.

Thank you to everyone who has played their part!

Southampton 2025 @southampton2025

A heartfelt congratulations to @bradford2025

Thank you Southampton- the #CityofCulture2025 journey has brought our city together, celebrated our home, and unlocked ambitions. This is not the end of our journey, we march on!

Proud of the community of Southampton for coming together to support the bid for City of Culture 2025. Disappointed not to have won but huge congratulations to Bradford. For Southampton this is not the end but just the beginning!

We will send a one-off £650 cost of living payment directly to around eight million of the lowest income households.

Worth over £5 billion, there will be no need for people to fill out forms – we will send the payment straight into bank accounts.

From the autumn, we will send over eight million pensioner households who receive the Winter Fuel Payment – an extra, one-off pensioner cost of living payment of £300.

I’ve heard people’s concerns about the impact of the Energy Bills Support Scheme repayments on future bills.

So those repayments will be cancelled.

Furthermore, the £200 of support for household energy bills will be doubled to £400 for everyone.

Fly with @British_Airways to Nice! 🇫🇷

🚨 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.

I am delighted by the outcome of this Judicial Review, and the news that the Southampton Airport extention plans will proceed to the next stage. I’ve campaigned on this since being elected and delighted it’s now going to proceed. https://www.voteholmes.co.uk/news/paul-comments-southampton-airport-extension-judicial-review-outcome

I’ll be holding a constituency pop up surgery in Boyatt Wood and Eastleigh North on Friday 27th May. 3-4pm. Please email Paul.holmes.mp@parliament.uk or call 02382 542205 for an appointment so we can reserve time.

Really honoured to be shown around the Hampshire Southern Support and Training HQ in Netley. Responsible for specialist training firearms, specialist police training Hampshire Police. The taser was pretty nerve wracking! A privilege to have this facility in my constituency.

Great morning seeing the team at @PavilionotPark in Eastleigh and the work they do to support the local community! Great facilities and a great vision for the future. Their inclusive ‘Cycles4all’ project is an amazing local attraction- get down there abs have some fun!

Lib Dem Eastleigh Council will have borrowing levels at £670 million by 2025, £6,300 per Eastleigh resident. This excessive risk with your money has now prompted Government to investigate their 'excessive capital risk. I have been written to by Ministers below.

Congratulations and well done @Jake_Daniels11 on a groundbreaking announcement in UK football. Hopefully a catalyst for more to feel able to and be themselves, but a huge emphasis now should be on football authorities to help create the conditions for more. Bravo and well done!

Congrats to Ukraine in #Eurovision2022. Second place is a great honour behind them. But this is the historic pic of the night. Shoulder to shoulder with our friends.
