Another busy diary for Colchester MP

November 27, 2012 10:14 AM

It was a busy weekend for Colchester MP Sir Bob Russell with eight events in his diary, six on Saturday and two on Sunday.

First on Saturday was his regular Advice Bureau for residents, followed by Colchester Liberal Democrats' Christmas Fayre held in the Party's headquarters at Magdalen Hall, Wimpole Road.

Next he went to Wimpole Road Methodist Church for a consultation by Colchester Borough Council of proposals to improve facilities at the Recreation Ground, off Old Heath Road.

Sir Bob then went with his wife Lady Russell to St Andrew's Church, Greenstead, to support the "Festival of Christmas Trees". His was one of 26 decorated trees from various local groups and organisations. It featured the green and gold colours of the House of Commons, with "Happy Christmas" in different languages.

Fifth diary entry for Saturday was to Colchester Art Society's exhibition held in the former Co-operative Offices in Victoria Place, off Eld Lane, which are currently being used by the voluntary arts group Slack Space.

Sir Bob's sixth event was in the evening when he attended the Annual Awards Evening of the Colchester Scout Band, held at St Benedict's College.

On Sunday morning he was back at St Andrew's Church for the "stir up Sunday service" when the Reverends Mary West and Hilary Le Seve prepared a Christmas cake during which they combined ingredients with verses from the Bible. The cake will now be baked and presented to those attending the Christmas Day service.

Sir Bob's eighth and final event of the weekend was at the Recreation Ground where he handed over to the New Town Community Garden one of the young Jubilee Oaks he has grown from acorns collected from Colchester Castle Park.

On Friday evening he was the guest speaker at Saffron Walden Liberal Democrats' Annual Dinner.

Today (Monday) starts with a visit to Monkwick Junior School where he will plant another of his Jubilee Oaks and talk to youngsters about his work as the Town's Member of Parliament - and then it is off to the House of Commons for a working lunch organised by the Essex Chambers of Commerce. He has a busy week in London with 37 events in his diary.

Sir Bob will back in Colchester for Friday where he has an Advice Bureau and three diary events. Next weekend will also be as busy as the weekend just gone.

He regularly puts in an 80-hour seven day week.

    If you are a resident of the Colchester constituency and are writing to discuss any issue that Parliament or government is responsible for, you must provide your home address as MPs are generally only permitted to act on behalf of constituents.

    If you are not a constituent, you do not need to provide your address, but the matters we can deal with are more limited and you may wish to contact your local MP in the first instance.
