On Saturday 13th June, Tom Brake MP, presented a prize to the winner of the ‘Love Where We Live’ logo contest at the 7th annual St. Helier Festival.
The winner, Molly Annabel Delaney, is a Year Six pupil at Hackbridge Primary School. As her reward, she received a certificate and a chance to have tea with her parents at the Houses of Parliament with Tom. The four runners-up also received certificates.
Tom also ran the ‘Save St. Helier Hospital’ petition at the festival. In the face of attempts to cut the hospital’s A&E, maternity and children’s wards, Tom has worked tirelessly for years to make sure that the hospital’s critical services remain open. His petition to preserve the funding for the hospital has gained more than 21,000 signatures.
The St. Helier festival took place from 12-5 PM at the open green area next to Sutton Arena on Middleton Road, Carshalton. It featured musical entertainment and family fun for all ages.
“I am so proud of Miss Delaney and everyone who entered the logo contest for ‘Love Where We Live’. It is wonderful to see youngsters getting involved in the contest”.
Miss Delaney’s logo will be used on all publicity circulated by the ‘Love Where We Live’ (LWWL) campaign, which is being spearheaded by Cllr Jean Crossby. LWWL aims to raise awareness of the activities and groups active in the north of the Borough.
The ‘Love Where We Live’ group will be working across the St Helier and Wandle Valley areas with local residents, groups, and organisations to promote an improved quality of life and well-being for people living in the local area.
It is easy to get involved with the Save St Helier campaign, just sign up to volunteer, or sign the petition to Save St. Helier at saveoursthelier.co.uk.
