Supporting Renew New Eltham this morning in support of #MoreInCommon

Along with candidates from all parties, I paused my campaign this morning in memory of Jo Cox, and in support of the excellent #MoreInCommon initiative from the Jo Cox Foundation.  Candidates across the UK are joining community projects in celebration of the values that Jo stood and campaigned for (more information on BBC News here).

The team and I helped the Community Association of New Eltham‘s summer planting outside the shops – part of the community’s Renew New Eltham initiative to look after the village.

Syed Kamall MEP visits Eltham

I was pleased to be joined on the campaign trail in Eltham by my old friend Syed Kamall MEP today.

As well as being a tireless campaigner for Londoners, Syed is playing a vital role representing Britain’s interests inside the European Parliament for these next two years in the run up to Brexit.

We spent the day talking to residents and making the case for their support on June 8th, to send Theresa May back to Number 10 with a strong negotiating hand in Brussels.
