It’s the final week of my Big Conversation, with more meetings, cafe drop-ins, and street surgeries to cap off a great community consultation. It’s been really valuable hearing the views and concerns of people from right across the constituency. If you haven’t been to an event – or want to go again –come along and make your voice heard!
This morning at 11.30 I’ll be in Manor Park Cafe for people to drop by for a cuppa and a chat (Facebook link), this afternoon I’ll be visiting Park Academy to talk with students, and in the evening at 7.30pm I’ll be holding my open meeting for women (Facebook link) at St Mary’s Church on Bramall Lane.

On Wednesday, I’ll be at the Chinese Community Centre on London Road at 1.30pm, and then at 7.30pm I’ll be holding an open meeting on Brexit (Facebook link) at the Broomhall Centre on the corner of Broomspring Lane and Brunswick Street.
On Thursday, I’ll be meeting with the Orthodox Jewish community at the Kingfield Synagogue in Nether Edge, visiting Sheffield High School to hear from students, meeting with welfare advisers from Citizens Advice, and at 7pm I’ve an open meeting on creating safer neighbourhoods (Facebook link) with Alan Billings, South Yorkshire’s Police & Crime Commissioner, at 7pm in the ZEST Centre on Upperthorpe.
