Yesterday I met with campaigners who are fighting to keep adult education services at the heart of city. This follows recent proposals to close the Vaughan Centre for Lifelong Learning.

A collective solution is essential to ensure our city can provide the adult learning services we need. I have written to the University of Leicester’s Vice Chancellor, Professor Boyle to press the case in the strongest possible terms.

I’ve been campaigning with Abbey ward Councillors to get Biffa to clean up the awful smells coming from its site in Mowmacre Hill. I held a public meeting yesterday to see whether residents felt Biffa’s changes to their operations strategy had improved the smell in the area.

Biffa announced further proposed improvements but with the smell continuing to overcome local residents I have asked for more weekly inspections from Leicester City Council and for Biffa to revisit the height of their chimney stacks.

The Environment Agency and Leicester City Council stressed the importance of reporting smells coming from the site directly to Biffa. You can do this by calling or texting Biffa on 07921385710.

I will continue to monitor this issue very closely and will be holding a further meeting in October. If you would like to attend this meeting, please do get in touch with my office either by writing to 42 Narborough Road, Leicester, LE3 0BQ, via email at {at} parliament(.)uk or phone on 0116 2044980.

Yesterday morning I spent some time with local residents at Braunstone Frith Recreation Centre. We discussed problems with their limited bus service and crime and anti-social behaviour in the area. I will be looking at both of these issues very closely. If you’re having similar problems, please get in touch with my office either by writing to 42 Narborough Road, Leicester, LE3 0BQ, via email at {at} parliament(.)uk or phone on 0116 2044980.

I visited The Centre for Fun and Families earlier today to hear about the great work they do to help families, children and teenagers cope with a range of problems including mental health. The charity provides training for professionals and specialist group work programmes for children and their parents.
