** Gwynne reopens Citizen's Awards

Andrew Gwynne, MP for Denton and Reddish, has reopened nominations for the Denton and Reddish Citizen's Awards. The Awards, which were set up in 2020, allow members of the community to nominate someone who goes ‘above and beyond’ to recognise their contribution.

Commenting on the relaunch, Andrew Gwynne said:

“I really am pleased to today announce the relaunch of The Denton and Reddish Citizens Awards, where anyone across Denton and Reddish can be nominated to recognise an outstanding contribution to their community.

Since founding these awards I have met some truly inspirational people across Denton and Reddish and I really am looking forward to celebrating the achievements of many more local people.”

** Gwynne backs campaign to #BanSnaring

Andrew Gwynne, MP for Denton and Reddish, is backing the League Against Cruel Sports’ campaign to ban snaring.

A snare is a thin wire noose set to trap animals which some people view as being a pest or threat, usually foxes and rabbits. These animal traps are used extensively on ‘game’ bird shoots and are intended to catch the animals around the neck like a lasso.

Snares capture any animal that happens to step into them. In 2012 a UK government study found that only around a quarter of the animals caught in snares were the intended targets (normally foxes). The remaining three quarters of the animals caught, severely injured or killed in these vicious nooses included hares, badgers, family cats and dogs, deer and even otters. Based on the government’s 2012 research, the League estimates that snares may be trapping up to 1,700,000 animals every year.

Despite the cruelty of the device, there is still no total bans on its use. Several polls indicate that over 70% of the general public would support a full ban if implemented.

Commenting on the campaign, Andrew Gwynne said:

“Snaring is a cruel, inhumane and outdated practise, and it needs to stopped.

The current legislation is simply not fit for purpose, and its time for the Government to step up and protect our wonderfully diverse wildlife.

I’m really grateful to the League Against Cruel Sports for campaigning so hard against snaring, and I’m proud to be backing their calls to #BanSnaring.”

** APPG on State Pension Inequality for Women: AGM

On the 18th of May, the All-Party Parliamentary Group on State Pension Inequality for Women met for its Annual General Meeting.

The APPG is co-chaired by Denton and Reddish MP Andrew Gwynne alongside Peter Aldous MP. It aims to provide a cross-party forum in which to hold the Government to account on the issue of transitional arrangements to compensate 1950s-born women who are affected by changes to the state pension age. Each APPG is required to hold an AGM at least once a year, in order to elect officers and discuss key priorities for the year ahead.

Commenting on the AGM, Andrew Gwynne said:

“This was a very positive meeting, and it’s great to see even more colleagues from across the political spectrum getting involved with the work of the APPG.

1950s-born women have been ignored for far too long. The APPG is more committed than ever to giving a voice to 1950s-born women in Parliament, and putting pressure on the Government to address this extraordinary injustice.

I look forward to continuing to work alongside Peter, and once again thank colleagues for attending this AGM”.

** A Q&A with Manor Green 👩🏻‍🎓

Last Friday, I had a fantastic visit to Manor Green Primary Academy ([link removed]) in Haughton Green. It’s always nice to see schools in the constituency, and to meet staff and pupils.

While at Manor Green, I did a brilliant Q&A with the School Council. They’ve some great ideas about how we tackle environmental issues in and around the school. And thanks to Milly for giving me a letter outlining things they’d like to see.

Lastly, I was entertained by the school choir. Great talent! 🎶

📺 WATCH: At Treasury Questions I speak about how new transport infrastructure should link people to jobs. If that’s true, we need a joined-up strategy.

It cannot be right that to accommodate HS2 at Piccadilly the Metrolink through Audenshaw will need to be mothballed for over two years.

Transport for Greater Manchester ([link removed]) and Tameside Council ([link removed]) have a sensible solution to keep trams running.

** #RescueIsMyFavouriteBreed 🐾

It was great to join Battersea ([link removed]) earlier this week at a Parliamentary event, and show my support for their #RescueIsMyFavouriteBreed ([link removed]) campaign.

Alongside this campaign, Battersea are also doing great work in calling for Pet Friendly properties for renters, and providing pet care advice for new owners. Find out more here [link removed] ([link removed]) 👈

Note: There were some very well behaved dogs in Parliament for a photo-op, but by the time I got to the event they were on their break. So I improvised and made do with a Battersea plush cat.😺

🔵 Pleased to show my support for Alzheimer's Society ([link removed]) in Parliament earlier this week, as part of Dementia Action Week 2022.

Dementia diagnosis rates have dropped substantially during the pandemic, and it's so important that the Government focuses on helping diagnosis rates not only recover, but improve on pre-pandemic levels.

A timely dementia diagnosis helps people lead more fulfilled and less fearful lives.

📺 WATCH: As the cost of living continues to rise, health inequalities are widening.

This is having a terrible impact on communities right across the country, and the Tories are failing to get a grip on it.

Thanks to Sky News ([link removed]) for covering this important story.

📰 READ: Malnutrition, gout and scurvy are rising. A consequence of 12 years of Tory government.

If you can't afford to heat your home, or put food on the table, you are more likely to get sick.

Thanks to London Evening Standard ([link removed]) for covering these awful figures, and my comments on the impact of the cost of living crisis. Read the full story here ([link removed]) .
