The community support effort in Runnymede and Weybridge in response to the pandemic has been fantastic. Volunteers across the constituency are working hard to support vulnerable residents through community support and registering as NHS volunteer responders.
A flood warning has been issued for the River Wey, meaning property flooding is possible. Flood alerts are also in place along the River Thames, Windle Brook and Hale, Mill, Addlestone and Chertsey Bournes as a result of recent heavy rainfall.
This week marks Apprenticeship Week (3-9 February) and I attended the British Retail Consortium’s National Apprenticeship Week’s reception in Parliament. I met with inspirational employers and apprentices highlighting the fantastic opportunities quality apprenticeship programmes can bring.
I was delighted to visit St Peter’s hospital this morning to meet with Suzanne Rankin and Andy Field, Chief Exec and Chairman, but also the doctors, nurses, administrators and support staff across A&E and the wards.
