The week began by meeting an organisation who were moving to Finchley that specialise in skills training for people in the hospitality industry. We already have Hospitality House in East Finchley who are one of the biggest training providers in this area so I was interested to learn about their work.
I had an interesting meeting with TrainE-TraidE, an organisation who provide advice to the Orthodox Jewish Community on employment opportunities.
That evening, I held another Meet Your Street event, this time for residents of North Finchley. Some pictures of the event are available on my website.
On Tuesday I had the pleasure of hosting a tea for two at the Commons for constituents who won the prize at a fundraising event by a local group, something I do regularly.
Later in the week, I joined campaigners on fuel duty to continue the successful campaign to cut the cost of fuel. On Wednesday evening I then hosted my annual 6th Form Conference which I thoroughly enjoyed. The students were excellent and the event was covered in the Hendon and Finchley Times (link).
Another event which I enjoyed was meeting disability campaigners Matthew Kayne and Simon Davies. I presented two letters from the Prime Minister to Matthew and Simon who raised thousands for charity. Read the full article here.
Friday saw my Mobile Surgery out in Temple Fortune before heading back to my Finchley Office for further surgeries. I was out again on Saturday on Dersingham Road and neighbouring streets in Cricklewood to meet local residents.
