A great time had by all at my local coffee morning, today. Pleasure to invite local residents to share a cuppa and hear about their local issues. Thanks to local organisations and the police for coming along and listening to residents.
Today, I brought together officials from Wandsworth Council and Wandsworth Police to discuss what we can do to make Tooting Broadway a safer, cleaner and more vibrant place to live and work.
Tonight, I joined with representatives of all faiths and none at the BATCA annual peace ceremony in Tooting.
Thank you to everyone for their prayers of peace. They are needed now more than ever and I am so proud to represent such a wonderful, caring community.
Today, I read out the names of the fallen and laid a wreath at St Nicholas Church in Tooting with local councillors, Rex Osborn, Kate Forbes and Kemi Akinola and members of our emergency services.
Since the horrific terrorist attacks on Israel in October, more than 1,000 incidents of antisemitic hate crimes have been reported to Community Secure Trust.
Today, I visited their headquarters in London to see the work they are doing to tackle antisemitism. It is a stain on our society. It must be combatted and those who perpetrate it must face the full force of the law.
It was wonderful to host a coffee morning for local residents today at Tooting United Reform Church. It was brilliant to welcome residents from Tooting and Furzedown. I am really grateful to everyone who attended, including some local organisations and charities who do invaluable work in the community.
Tonight, I held a peace vigil at Tooting Broadway station to bring our community together to remember all those who have died in Israel and Gaza recently. I want to pay a huge thanks to the representatives from our local religious groups who said a prayer for peace.
During some of our darkest hours, Tooting reminds us that there is always hope.
As part of National Care Home Week. I recently met some of the incredible staff and residents at Nightingale House in Balham to see first-hand the fantastic work being done in the local community.
The annual BATCA Fun Day is always good fun - and this year was no exception. I was delighted to celebrate the helpers, heroes and happy Tooting residents at this wonderful community event.
It was my pleasure to open the Quirky Dovetail Market. There was such a fantastic display of local arts and crafts on sale, which demonstrated the truly incredible talents that local people have to offer.
