Good to join @colourfulradio & @BrixtonProject this morning in Brixton for #WindrushDay celebrations & to speak about why as we celebrate the immense contribution of the Windrush Generation, we continue to call for justice #WeAreHere

The Windrush generation helped build Britain.

But the Tories' hostile environment left many homeless, jobless and without healthcare. Victims are still waiting for the justice and compensation they deserve.

Windrush descendent @DavidLammy tells their story. #WindrushDay

A brilliant evening for @RefugeeWeek organised by @LambethCitizens & @HHWR_ with organisations who welcome & support refugees whoโ€™ve fled to safety here

Iโ€™m so proud of our communities & really glad that Lambeth will now join Southwark as a Borough of Sanctuary #RefugeesWelcome

On the eve of #WindrushDay it was fantastic to attend the launch of โ€˜HOME: Remembering the Windrush Generationโ€™ at @bcaheritage curated by @TonyFairweathe3 who has recreated rooms from the homes of Windrush pioneers. Itโ€™s really moving - visit if you can!

Come to the Upper Norwood Library (upstairs) to meet us and loads more volunteer groups.

The park, the dinosaurs, the park bathers, the Community Web, the Museum, Rockmounters and much much more...

Now until 4pm!!

Marching today with @DaWNLabour members @The_TUC for all my constituents feeling the unbearable pressure of the cost of living crisis & the Toriesโ€™ failure of our public services

Boris Johnson is running the UK into the ground & itโ€™s time for change #DemandBetter #JoinAUnion

Boris Johnson has lost not one but two ethics advisers & his anti-corruption adviser. His government is rotten to its core and utterly corrosive to our politics & democracy. Watch the Minister's response when I raised this with him today #JohnsonResign #StopTheRot #Geidtgate

Thinking of Jo on the 6th anniversary of her murder

We were the same age, elected the same day

Jo was a lovely friend to me & a brilliant MP

She will always be missed & remembered

Her powerful legacy #MoreInCommon lives on

Love to @kimleadbeater @MrBrendanCox & family today

This is someone trying to steal my bike with a power tool in Herne Hill yesterday evening

Grateful to @margynewens for the photo & to staff at Peachy Goat who twice deterred him from finishing the task

Bike owners please be vigilant. Please do get in touch if you have any info

Can you spare 2 hrs on Thur 30 June, Fri 1 July or Sat 2 July to collect food for local people in crisis?

We need volunteers to help with our collections at Tesco stores in #Streatham & #Brixton.

Our supplies are low & this would help us enormously

Watch our Eucharist of Remembrance and Solidarity led by @BishopSouthwark using the link below. Last night @helenhayes_ read the names of the 72 people who lost their lives in the fire. ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š We continue to pray for justice. ๐Ÿ™

We remember the 72 who died, all who grieve, all whose lives were changed forever by the trauma of the fire & all who still wait for justice

A privilege to read the name, age & floor of each victim at a service of remembrance & solidarity last night at @allsaints_org #Grenfell

We are delighted to host with @LambethCitizens Migrant Justice Team an in person event 21st June 7pm with @helenhayes_ : "A Welcoming Lambeth". Stories, networking and ACTION for all migrants and refugees in Lambeth. Join us!

Very sad to learn of the passing of Norma Gibbes

This was the last time I saw Norma at the African & Caribbean War Memorial on Remembrance Day 2021

Norma was a headteacher, councillor & Chair of Governors @KingsdaleFS

She fought tirelessly for equality & will be much missed

We are proud to have reached 200+ #BeaconSchool & alumni in England, with 23 schools in our new 2022-23 cohort.

Today we congratulate & welcome @CharterEast. We can't wait to partner with you to enrich quality provision for & experience of Holocaust T&L. RT @helenhayes_

Good to meet unpaid carers in Parliament last week during #CarersWeek hosted by @CarersTrust

4.2 million UK residents are carers & they save the government ยฃ132 billion a year

Carers need more support & recognition - their love & sense of duty is too often taken for granted

Fantastic Dominoes Tournament at Lambeth Town Hall organised by @ClubBrixton in partnership with @NHSEngland & @BlackThrive with blood pressure checks on hand

Undiagnosed hypertension can kill if untreated & collaborations like this are vital for reducing health inequalities

Cruel, inhumane, unworkable & unaffordable. All strength to those challenging the Home Secretaryโ€™s appalling Rwanda policy in the courts

Whatever the outcome, this policy is a terrible stain on this governmentโ€™s already shameful record https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-61758828

Coshamโ€™s Labour councillor Asghar Shah welcomed not one, but two shadow ministers to the ward today! @helenhayes_ and @stephenmorganmp to talk about issues children and families face in the area

A short thread ๐Ÿงต

The reports of abuse & safeguarding failures at Calcot childrenโ€™s homes are horrific

The first priority must be urgent action to safeguard the children in the care of Calcot at the schools & childrenโ€™s homes they run https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-61709572

Inspiring to meet foster carers in Portsmouth who are working together as a #MockingbirdConstellation to replicate extended family & support each other as they care for vulnerable children

Itโ€™s clear Mockingbird makes a big difference to recruitment & retention of foster carers

We are recruiting a #playgroundmanager for @GroveAdventure, a magical playground in #LoughboroughJunction which makes a huge difference to the lives of local children. Click here https://loughboroughjunction.org/grove-adventure-playground-is-recruiting-a-playground-manager Please spread the message @londonplay @IslingtonPlay @StreathamSYCT

Under the Tories the number of women exiting the workforce is rising for the first time in decades

Spiralling childcare costs are pricing women out of work

I asked the Minister for Women & Equalities when the Government will stop failing women & families @PregnantScrewed >>

Shocked to hear of the bus crash on Grove Vale today. Thinking of the injured passengers and everyone who witnessed such a distressing incident. Hoping everyone makes a full and swift recovery #EastDulwich https://www.londonworld.com/news/watch-shocking-aftermath-bus-smashes-tipper-truck-east-dulwich-two-injured-3724377

On Monday 13 June @BishopSouthwark will celebrate a Eucharist of Remembrance & Solidarity at @allsaints_org to mark the 5th anniversary of the Grenfell Tower fire.

The names of the 72 who died will be read in an Act of Remembrance to coincide with the time of the first 999 call.

Good morning Brixton.we have these and more books on our @brixton.village shelf on 4th avenue available FREE. come see us we are in Brixton village.see our Instagram @bookstopbrixton for full listing.@BrixtonBlog @BrixtonBID @Scarlett4C @lambeth_council @helenhayes_

The Conservatives are failing our children.

Exams chaos
Failure to deliver free school meals
A disastrous tutoring programme
And students facing exams without support to recover lost learning.

But the Education Secretary wouldn't even turn up.

Common pipistrelle species champion @helenhayes_ volunteering in a local park and helping to plant a food forest. We hope bats are flying about there too.

Friends of Loughborough Park @LoughboroughPrk

And thanks to @helenhayes_ who proved to be a dab hand with a trowel!

Shocking that 59% of Tory MPs do not believe that honesty or integrity matter in politics, public life or at Number 10

I hope theyโ€™ve all been honest & transparent with their constituents about that

Johnson survived the vote but he remains a total disgrace #OnlyAMatterOfTime

Conservative MPs turning up to work today have one job

Remove the contemptible liar and charlatan from the top of our government #StopTheRot

To round off a really wonderful weekend across Dulwich & West Norwood, thank you @ketracommunity for a fantastic #PlatinumJubilee party, with a starring role for @magdakritzbartโ€™s Queen & Corgi cake

Special thanks to the fabulous Ecuadorean dancers for allowing me to join in!

Great to see Helen Simmons, the new CEO of @StChrisHospice raising funds for our amazing local hospice at the Woodwarde Road #PlatinumJubilee celebration

Thank you Lancaster Avenue Residentsโ€™ Association for inviting me & @Cavanaghj to join your #PlatinumJubilee party (& to @RosemeadPrep for allowing it to happen on your playground)

So lovely to see everyone coming together to enjoy the celebrations & great music from Harry!

Thank you to the residents of Dulwich Wood Park @MaypoleMiss & @brazenprods for inviting me to join your #PlatinumJubilee celebration. Lovely to see Annette Crosbie

Congratulations @magdakritzbart on the most amazing cake! #community #maypoledancing
