Paul Blomfield MP

A strong voice for Sheffield Central

My week

Paul_Blomfield_park_hill_photo_cropped.jpg

After an extraordinary election that defied the pundits, I’m back in Westminster today. I’m hugely grateful to the people of Sheffield Central for the overwhelming support that they gave me last Thursday. It’s been an enormous privilege to represent Sheffield in Parliament for the last seven years and I’m looking forward to continuing where I left off just a few weeks ago. I’ll continue to work for everyone in the constituency, whether you voted for me or not, and continue to base my priorities on your concerns.

We enter the week of the General Election with a dark cloud hanging over campaigning. Saturday’s appalling attack in London, coming so soon after the tragic events in Manchester, has shocked everyone. Throughout the week our thoughts will be with those killed and injured in both attacks, and with their families and friends.

The tragic events in Manchester halted campaigning last week as all our thoughts turned to those killed and injured in the appalling attack, and to their families and friends. After the national moment of silence on Thursday I started campaigning again and will be throughout the week ahead. The reception I’ve received has been brilliant and it’s great to see all the posters everywhere (if you want one, get in touch here).  

Knocking on doors, community meetings, Amphifest and hustings – my week ahead, with just 10 days to the election!

I’m looking forward to another week knocking on doors and meeting people – the reception I’ve received has been brilliant and it’s great to see all the posters everywhere (if you want one, get in touch here). Alongside this, I’ll be meeting parents outside schools, visiting the Cherry Tree Project for homeless young people and backing the Princess Diana Award mentoring campaign to connect adults from the world of work with disengaged young people.

I’m really enjoying the election campaign. It’s great to get out knocking on doors and meeting so many people – and I’m hugely grateful for all the support that I’ve received. It’s great to see all the posters and garden stakes going up everywhere (if you want want one, get in touch here). I’ll be knocking on lots more doors in the week ahead – and, in between, there are a few events too.

Hustings, voter registration, Palestine, community pubs and more knocking on doors – some of my week ahead

It's been an incredibly quick turnaround since Theresa May’s surprise announcement, but Parliament will be dissolved a minute after midnight tonight. So after today I’ll cease to be a Member of Parliament, but will instead be a candidate, campaigning to be re-elected as MP for Sheffield Central on 8th June. I’ll keep you in touch with my campaign through my website, and my Facebook page which you can like here.

After a weekend knocking on doors across Sheffield Central and listening to views about the General Election, I’m back in Westminster this morning for the last week before Parliament is prorogued on Thursday (although formal dissolution isn’t until 3 May). I’ve a full week starting today with Communities and Local Government Questions, when I’ll be asking what Ministers are doing to redress regional variations in adult social care funding.

As I draft this column every week, to keep people in touch with my work as your MP, I’m always aware that things can change quickly. And this week underlines it! I was preparing for the week’s business as Parliament returned today after the Easter Recess, when Theresa May announced her plans for a surprise General Election on 8 June.

Parliament is in recess for the next two weeks. So I’ll be in Sheffield catching up with meetings, working with my team on casework, clearing my emails - and taking a few days break.

After last week’s shocking and tragic events, Parliament is back as normal today. As soon as I arrive this morning, I’ll be heading to Westminster Hall to sign the book of condolences for PC Keith Palmer and the other victims of the appalling events of last Wednesday.
