The Tories are failing our children: narrowing the curriculum & pushing experienced teachers out of our schools.

We need an Equal Access Guarantee so girls can play & enjoy all sports.

We must secure the Lionesses' legacy.

The govt is forcing TfL to cut bus services - the consultation closes tomorrow

We currently stand to lose the 12, 45 & 78 which are all vital services for local residents

Here’s my letter to TfLπŸ‘‡

Please submit your views here & help stop these cuts https://haveyoursay.tfl.gov.uk/busreview

The Tories are failing families and denying our kids opportunities that help them thrive.

While Tory leadership candidates compete to damage our country, Labour would be putting money in families’ pockets β€” tackling the cost of living crisis right now.

We can’t believe we’re saying this again but demand for help with food is high and as a result our stocks are low.

If you can donate here are our most needed items right now. Thank you so much.

Great to join the launch of @BrixtonHarlem last night - an exciting five day festival exploring the common threads between two brilliant communities on opposite sides of the Atlantic, organised by @BrixtonBID & @125thstreetbid

Lots of new books on the #brixtonvillage shelf so come visit #bookstopbrixton on 4th avenue in #brixtonvillage. All books are free. This project promotes reading in Brixton through free books. @lambeth_council @helenhayes_ @Scarlett4C @BrixtonWindrush @BrixtonBlog

We all celebrated the Lionesses' stunning victory, now we must secure their legacy.

The Tories are failing to seize this moment to ensure girls can play football at school.

I've written to the Education Sec demanding an 'Equal Access Guarantee' for school sport πŸ‘‡πŸΌ

Today we remember the thousands of Roma and Sinti men, women, and children who were killed during the Holocaust and remind ourselves that Roma discrimination and hate is still very present today.

In their memory we say never again.

Thanks @LambethMade @bybrixton & @WalcotLambeth

So, this happened!

Thank you to the amazing @BrixChamber for letting me join the final day of your fabulous Summer Estates Tour today on the Edmundsbury Estate.

Hope my duff notes weren’t too audible! 🎻🎢

So emotional

For all the players over so many decades who were dismissed, denied, ignored & overlooked

For every girl who ever wanted to play football

And for the pride of the whole country

Congratulations #Lionesses #FootballsComingHome #FootballCameHome

Our planned large delivery of UHT milk this week was cancelled so now very short until delivery is rearranged. Can you help this weekend. We need UHT semi skimmed and full fat please. Well stocked with non dairy milk. Thank you

This is such a disgrace

The Tories are continuing to reward these companies with an investment allowance while across the country people face the most desperate winter

Whoever is leading this government, it will always have entirely the wrong priorities

My youngest was saved from potentially life threatening Group B Strep by a diligent doctor who spotted it in a routine urine sample & made sure I got antibiotics just before I went into labour

Babies’ lives can be saved with more awareness of this treatable infection #GBSAM2022

For one night only, relive the magic of Danny Boyle's opening ceremony at a cinema near you. Proceeds will go to @FoundationTessa and NHS brain cancer care. #TurnUpForTessa

Great to visit the @LivingPlatform Moorlands & Southwyck pantry, thank you for the warm welcome!

The pantry offers fresh vegetables & store cupboard items for a weekly cost of Β£5, it’s a huge help when costs are rising so much. You can find out more here: http://healthylivingplatform.org/pantries

It’s a sickening spectacle watching Truss & Sunak tack further & further to the right as they chase votes from 0.2% of the UK population, while presenting themselves as the solution to problems they actively helped create. Our country deserves so much better than this

Yesterday I challenged the government to do more to help small and medium sized businesses in Dulwich & West Norwood who are struggling to trade with the EU as a consequence of the Tories' disastrous EU trade deal >>

There will be no train services between Brixton & Beckenham Junction, including through Sydenham Hill, West Dulwich & Herne Hill from 23-31 July (from tomorrow for a week) while Network Rail replaces track in the Penge tunnel

Vital bus routes in Lambeth like the 45, 59 & 133 are at risk of being axed or changed due to Tory bus cuts.

We've been out speaking to people in Lambeth this morning about the cuts the Tories are forcing on TfL.

Add your voice by signing our petition: https://www.lambeth-labour.org.uk/petition/stop-tory-bus-cuts/

Please sign my petition to β€˜Save The Junction’ @thejunctionSE5 the much loved & admired music pub in #LoughboroughJunction which is being threatened with eviction by their landlord - Petition is hereπŸ‘‰https://chng.it/V6KtFZLH8q via @UKChange

Out this morning with @helenhayes_ campaigning against the Tory cuts to our #brixton buses. Lots of support from commuters at Brixton. Tory cuts to funding @TfL will mean fewer buses, more crowded buses, less safe affordable travel. Sign our petition @LambethLabour

The Tories' failed asylum system is having dire consequences for vulnerable people living in my constituency & across south London who have fled to the UK for their lives. My speech in the House of Commons this week >>

The Tories’ refusal to negotiate long term funding for TfL is putting our buses at risk

We stand to lose the 45, 12 & 78 & changes to the 59 will make it less convenient

I joined @Scarlett4C in Brixton to protest against the bus cuts

Thank you to members of @NASUWT for joining me to talk about inclusion in our schools and throughout our society.

The school curriculum should include and inspire all young people.

The next Labour government will ensure that it does.

There’s a new Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing & Communities who is now tasked with determining the Windsor Grove scrapyard planning appeal

We’ve written to @GregClarkMP urging him to make the right decision for our community & refuse the appeal #ScrapTheYard

This is very sad from Cllr Charlie Smith

Please take heed of the tragedy of Tommy’s untimely loss at the age of 17, and take great care around water

Only swim in dedicated bathing spots and only enter the water if you can swim. Definitely don’t swim in London’s rivers or canals

Charlie smith @SuecharlieSmith

On this day in 1959 my brother Tommy drowned in the Thames near Isleworth. He was only 17. It was a hot day. Please think carefully before swimming in rivers or open waters.

Blisteringly hot across London for the next few days πŸ₯΅

Please look out for vulnerable neighbours & take this situation seriously

Here is the public health advice on how to stay safe in the heat πŸ‘‡

Liz Truss claims she became a Tory because kids at her school β€œweren’t getting the opportunities they should have”.

Liz spent her entire time at school under Conservative governments.

Who does she think was in charge of education?

What sort of fools do they take us for?

Great to see local MP Helen Hayes at our stall at the Lambeth Country Show, with volunteers Tracey Gregory and Doye Akinlade.
Visit us tomorrow opposite the Discovery Zone.

Thank you to everyone involved in a brilliant @lblcountryshow

The pure joy of the vegetable sculptures, @BrixChamber on the main stage, rides, food & a wealth of great community organisations offering activities & support, it’s been amazing!

Please stay safe in the heat #LCS22

Every single Tory leadership candidate has been part of a decade of failure, running public services down and overseeing soaring child poverty.

Now they’re focused on an arms race on tax cuts, not improving our public services.

The only choice for change is a Labour government.

Really shocking to see these scenes of a huge fire in Brixton. My thanks to the @FireLambeth teams who attended the scene, and thoughts with the local businesses & residents affected https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/breaking-brixton-market-fire-huge-27500399

Brilliant to be at the launch of @lambethtigersfc @dulwichcc taking on The Griffin Sports Ground in Dulwich Village. They’ll run great football programmes for local children & young people & cricket for girls. So good to see this fantastic resource being used to real benefit

Good to discuss the council’s new plans to secure the future of the two historic oak trees and the Cox’s Walk bridge from which Pissarro painted this wonderful view at our Dulwich Wood Forum last night. @CatherineRose6 @helenhayes_

@helenhayes_ @PenGreen_Corby @bphillipsonMP @NorthantsUnison So pleased to see you at one of my favourite inspirational places @helenhayes_ 😊 @PGResearchBase @PenGreen_Corby
A true example of exceptional community led practice for children and their families ❀
