Come In and Rest is a fantastic new scheme launching in Leeds that invites businesses to put a sticker in their window to let people know that those who need to are welcome to come inside and sit down for a few minutes, without any obligation to make a purchase.
I fully support this initiative and look forward to seeing more businesses using this scheme to invite the public

It was great to speak at the West Leeds and Bramley Credit Union AGM on Saturday 10th February. The Credit Union is a fantastic asset to the local community, offering accessible banking, savings opportunities and low-cost loans to local people – unlike expensive high street lenders and loan sharks
The Credit Union is run by volunteers, and is a savings club and community bank for local people living and working in Bramley and West Leeds. It is an important Organisation and I am proud to support it. Credit Unions are for everyone and unlike commercial banks, all profits are returned to their savers.
If you'd like to learn more about the Credit Union or find out how to get involved, please do get in contact with the union.

Premier Farnell moving out of Armley is devastating news for a community that has supported and worked at the Armley warehouses for many years. Whilst it is great that the company has decided to expand and stay in Leeds, I will work hard to make sure that local employees of Premier Farnell can still access jobs at the new sites
I am in discussions with Leeds City Council, the Leeds City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and Premier Farnell to ensure that jobs remain in Armley and that local people working for Premier Farnell are able to access jobs at their new location.
Armley needs more good quality jobs and investment – a point I have made repeatedly to the council and LEP and I will continue to fight for urgent and meaningful action to deliver that investment.
