I welcome the recent news that the Council have announced plans to delay their post-16 SEND transport assistance offer. This means that over 16’s with special educational needs and disabilities will continue to receive transport to school for the upcoming academic year, as oppose to having to get by with personal travel allowances.

Excited to raise a glass of Baroness Bacon beer to Alice in Parliament next month!
Alice Bacon was a pioneer and a role model. She was Yorkshire’s first woman MP, blazing an inspirational trail for women across the county and the country. She also played a key role in some of the most important changes of the 1960s, particularly education reform. It is important that we remember her remarkable life and legacy, so I am delighted to have secured the Baroness Bacon beer brewed in her honour as the guest beer in Parliament’s Strangers’ Bar to give us the opportunity to raise a glass to Alice.

Beer created to honour Yorkshire first female MP.

I am delighted that the Great Get Together is happening once again this June. It is an excellent way for communities to get together, build friendships and of course remember the late Jo Cox MP.
