** Gwynne backs campaign to clamp down on scammers

Andrew Gwynne, MP for Denton and Reddish, has backed a campaign organised by Citizen’s Advice to help local residents stay aware, spot and report scammers.

Scam Awareness Fortnight is running from the 13th – 26th of June. With many households facing financial pressures during the cost of living crisis, scammers have become even more sophisticated and exploitative. For example, Citizen’s Advice have reported tracking down scammers pretending to be energy companies, and luring people with “too good to be true” deals in order to steal their money.

Research conducted by Citizen’s Advice has found that over 40 million people in the UK have been targeted by scammers in one form or another since the start of this year. This includes 73% of people in the North East and West. This represents a 14% increase compared to this time last year.

Scam Awareness Fortnight aims to give local people the knowledge and confidence to report scams and spot them before it’s too late.

Commenting on the initiative, Andrew Gwynne said:

“I’m really proud to be supporting Scam Awareness Fortnight. It is disgraceful to hear that scammers are using the cost of living crisis to further exploit ordinary working people.

That’s why we need to be giving people across Denton and Reddish all the tools they need to spot scammers, report them, and stay protected.

I would encourage anyone who wants to report a suspected scam, or find out more about how they operate, to visit the Citizen’s Advice website where they can find lots of really useful information.”

** Preparing for the jobs of tomorrow - my weekly article for the Tameside Reporter

Predicting the future isn’t easy. But for politicians, it is an important part of our job. Given the decisions we make in all sorts of areas, it’s crucial that we think about what the world around us will look like in the years and decades to come.

One area in which it’s increasingly important we look to the future is the job market. With technological change, accelerated by the pandemic, the jobs our children and grandchildren will be working in will be very different to those which we work in today.

Devolved authorities like Greater Manchester have a role to play in working out what the jobs of tomorrow will be and shaping policies towards them. At the heart of this is skills. If our young people are equipped with modern and forward-looking skills, then they will be well equipped to step into the world of work.

Tameside College is one institution which has been leading the way on this. By offering a range of qualifications from National Vocational Qualifications to BTECs, they are allowing Tameside’s young people to gain the skills they need for the job market. Last week I was delighted to see the news that Tameside College have launched a new Higher Technical Qualification in computing (with cyber security). This will not only help our young people gain the skills they need for the digital age, but in the long term it will help protect businesses across Greater Manchester from cyber threats by providing the skilled workers the digital sector needs.

Tameside College are also leading the way with their apprenticeship provision. They are offering apprenticeships ranging from baking to bricklaying, allowing young people to gain the practical experience they need to thrive in the world of work. My first job was a trainee in a computing company, so I’ve always been passionate about the importance of vocational training. I’ve spent many years promoting apprenticeships in Parliament, and I’ll continue to lobby the government to make sure that they give vocational training the attention it deserves.

I want Tameside’s young people to be able to pursue their dreams, and to gain the skills they need locally without having to move to other parts of the country. By encouraging a skills revolution, we can attract new businesses and new industries to Tameside with a strong, skilled workforce to act as a magnet for the jobs of the future.

Andrew in the constituency

Last week, to mark Whit Friday, Cllr ([link removed]) Allison ([link removed]) Gwynne ([link removed]) and I dropped in to the Denton Contest at the Cricket Club.

There were already 15 bands competing before we arrived at 6.30, and the event continued right through until 11.15pm!

Proudest moment was Lyle marching in St John’s Band, Mossley.

A huge well done to the organisers and volunteers. After a pandemic absence, it’s great to have this tradition back! 👏🏻

** On the doorstep in Reddish 🚪

I started last Saturday with a fab morning session on the #LabourDoorstep ([link removed]) in Reddish speaking to residents in the part of Reddish South around Houldsworth Square who will be moving into Reddish North, explaining the changes and asking if there’s any issues they need help with.

Lots of nice conversations (and casework picked up too). This is a nice part of the job!

** Supporting a great cause at the Little Chap in Haughton Green🎸

I also dropped in the Chapel House - The Little Chap ([link removed]) - in Haughton Green for their charity day raising funds for Willow Wood Hospice ([link removed]) ; a cause very close to my heart right now.

Great to see the sun shining 😎 and lots of people enjoying the entertainment. Also good to see Team Denton South ([link removed]) out in support. Hope you all raise lots of money for this great charity. 💜

** A fantastic fundraiser at Aldwinians RUFC ♥️

Last Saturday I also briefly dropped-in to Aldwinians RUFC ([link removed]) in Audenshaw to show support for my constituent Rebecca Browne who has organised a fantastic fundraiser for two charities:

• Violet-Grace’s Gift ([link removed])

Violet was a little girl who was knocked down in St Helen’s and lost her life at just 4 years old. She was a superhero organ doner. Her parents have also helped change the law on sentencing dangerous and drink drivers. This charity help grieving families with funeral costs, counselling and much more.

• Emily's Legacy ([link removed])

Emily was born sleeping last year. This amazing charity is helping to break the taboo on infant loss and helps a lot of families through the hardest thing any family could go through.

I was so privileged to meet Violet-Grace’s parents and Emily’s dad.

** A lovely morning at Aldwyn Primary School👨🏻‍🎓

I had a great visit to Aldwyn primary school ([link removed]) in Audenshaw this morning with Councillor Charlotte Martin ([link removed]) .

I was invited by the Chair of Governors and Headteacher to view their new extension block providing smart new classrooms to replace old mobile classrooms. They’ve very kindly asked me to officially open the block (as I opened the school itself in 2010).

Following a tour of the new facilities I was shown around each classroom. It’s a fantastic school doing amazing things with the brilliant children. I can’t wait to return!

*The photo of me listening to the notice board is actually me listening to a message recorded by a pupil in French!

📺 WATCH: The Opposition have called an emergency debate on the failings of the Passport Service following massive failures to issue new passports on time.

My office, like other MPs’ offices, has been inundated with cases to chase. The private providers have already been judged “inadequate” by the Home Office, so why are they still there?

📺 WATCH: We know that with the Tories, money gets you access to ministers and influence in policy making. At Health Questions I ask for assurances that no people with links to the tobacco industry in Government will play a role in smokefree policies. I didn’t hear a no.

📰 READ: Thank you to the the Tameside Correspondent ([link removed]) for covering my comments on the Mayor of Greater Manchester's plans to bring our bus system back under public control.
