Short-term holiday lets bring visitors to the places we love. They also make it harder for local people to have a home of their own. We need a better balance for communities in #EastDevon. I welcome a review of the impact and options for our communities.

After this morning's session at @CardiffJomec we met members of @ICNNUK and had a tour of the new @BBCWales offices.

It was great to hear from the people making local journalism happen. Thank you to everyone involved!

Is local journalism is operating on a level playing field?

If you live, work or regularly visit #Exmouth, make sure you have your say on the future of the town centre & seafront.

I am proud to represent #Exmouth and I'm pleased @EastDevon are consulting the community about the future of our town.

Spending the day in sunny #Seaton supporting Helen Hurford for Tiverton & Honiton. Helen will be a fantastic locally focused MP and I’ve enjoyed every minute of the campaign. #VoteConservative

Weekly column: Unacceptable union strikes close railway services in #EastDevon
https://www.simonjupp.org.uk/news/weekly-column-unacceptable-union-strikes-close-railway-services-east-devon

About £16bn of taxpayers hard earned cash was spent supporting the railways and protecting railway workers jobs. It would have been the same whether public or private and many political leaders wanted more and harsher lockdowns for £bns more.

Perhaps we could pay rail workers a decent wage if billions hadn’t been shovelled into a bloated privatised railway during the pandemic.

Has the case for rail re-nationalisation ever been clearer?

#RMT

This week's strike action by RMT union members is bringing unnecessary, damaging, large-scale disruption to lives and livelihoods across #EastDevon. The #AvocetLine is closed with other services severely restricted, harming recovering businesses and hard-hit families.

⚠️ A reminder that due to industrial action, the following branch lines in Devon (Barnstaple, Exmouth, Paignton and Okehampton) will be closed on June 21, 23 and 25.

Expect severe disruption and plan ahead.

🗳 Great speaking to residents on behalf of @TivHonTories today ahead of an important by-election on Thursday.

🇬🇧 Spreading the word about the fab local @Conservatives candidate Helen Hurford with @JustinTomlinson, @LukeHall, @KellyTolhurst, @simonjamesjupp & team👇

Congratulations to the team of hardworking volunteers who organised @exmouthpride in Manor Gardens yesterday. It was a wonderful celebration of the LGBT+ community in #EastDevon and a fun event for everyone.

Really enjoyed meeting Di Wastenage MBE today from @WastenageFarms in beautiful Budleigh Salterton. Farmers are the custodians of the countryside and I’m working hard to represent their views in Westminster.

Sidmouth Hospice at Home is now the leading charity in the #SidValley offering #hospicecare. I was pleased to meet with CEO Alasdair Cameron to discuss their progress redeveloping the old Sidmouth Surgery in #Sidford, into a new state-of-the-art facility for patients. Great work!

An incredible turn out for our Jubilee celebrations with @exmouthband! 👑

Wonderful to see so many faces, young and old enjoying the festivities, and we even had a visit from @simonjamesjupp 😀 Have a photo or video from the event? Send it our way so we can share the joy!

🙌 A huge thank you to everyone who visited us at Westminster to hear how we plan to cut serious collisions to zero 👍

The Commandant of the base @ColSimonChapman, RSM, Padre and a Falklands veteran (still serving) placed wreaths at the foot of the memorial wall.

I am proud of the diverse community we have in #EastDevon. I was pleased to meet with members of the local Muslim community, including some of the refugees who were forced to flee for their lives from the Taliban after working with our armed forces in Afghanistan.

We cannot give way to rail strike blackmail – this is a defining moment for Britain

Wonderful to visit @littlehampri in #Exmouth today. Visiting every classroom, you can tell the children enjoy learning and being part of a brilliant school. Brilliant questions as ever from the children and good to discuss the future of the school with Headteacher, Katie Gray.

Sidmouth's Regency seafront on the Jurassic coast has made it the fifth top trending tourist spot!

HomeToGo released its 2022 UK Summer Travel Forecast, with 50% of British travellers planning to visit UK destinations this summer.

Great to be supporting fantastic candidate Helen Hurford in Tiverton & Honiton today.

Born & raised there, a headteacher for many years, started her own business, and a Deputy Mayor- all in Tiverton & Honiton.

For an amazing local MP, vote Helen Hurford 🗳

Exams are underway for the first time in two years. Over this period young people have shown incredible resilience.

It would be a crying shame if rail unions were to actively prevent some pupils from travelling to their exams later this month just to suit their political ends.
