** Dear Constituent,
Hello and welcome to this week's edition of the Denton and Reddish weekly news.

With the World Cup starting this weekend, I'm sure everyone across Denton and Reddish will join me in wishing the best of luck to both England and Wales. I obviously have real concerns about the running of this particular tournament, and feel strongly that Qatar shouldn't have been allowed to host it. However, I have no doubt that the England and Wales teams will do us proud in the cirumstances.

There's lots to update you on this week, including a bumper list of local Christmas events to pop in the diary! Scroll down to the community board to find out more.

Andrew Gwynne, MP for Denton and Reddish, has slammed the Government after new data revealed that households across the North West were paying over £350 more every month as a result of what Gwynne called “Tory incompetence and economic mismanagement”.

Families re-mortgaging as their two-year fixed-rate deals come to an end are facing interest rates more than three times higher after the Tories crashed the economy and left the UK uniquely exposed to global pressures after 12 years of stagnant growth.

According to the IMF, the UK is set to have the highest inflation and lowest growth of any major advanced economy over the next few years.

This comes in addition to rising energy bills, food prices and other household costs after a succession of Conservative chancellors, including Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, failed to get inflation under control.

Commenting, Andrew Gwynne said:

“In the middle of a cost of living crisis, working people across Denton and Reddish are having to shell out £350 extra a month in mortgage repayments each month thanks to this Conservative Government.

“The Tories have crashed the economy, failed to get a grip on inflation, and presided over a decade of stagnant growth.

We can’t afford more Tory incompetence and economic mismanagement. The people I represent deserve so much better from their Government.”

Lisa Nandy MP, Shadow Levelling Up, Housing & Communities Secretary, said:

“Britain literally cannot afford any more of this Tory government. The Conservatives have crashed the economy and left working people in the North West to pay the price. Higher mortgage payments mean less money in people’s pockets at a time when they’re already struggling to get by, but the government doesn’t get it.

“The damage has been done by the Tories – not just with the disastrous mini-Budget, but with 12 years of low growth as a result of large parts of the country being written off. That’s why we need a government that will invest in all people and all places, giving every part of our country the backing to contribute to deliver the growth, stability and prosperity that Britain needs.”

Commenting on the Chancellor’s Autumn Statement, MP for Denton and Reddish Andrew Gwynne said:

“The fourth Chancellor of 2022 today delivered an Autumn Statement which laid bare the scale of Tory economic failure and incompetence.

“In just 12 weeks, the Tories have tanked the economy, and sent working people an invoice to pay the damage. After 12 years of Tory rule, we’ve seen pitiful growth, low investment and the dismantling of our public services. The Office for Budget Responsibility is now reporting that working people are facing the biggest fall in disposable incomes on record. The Tories’ response to this? To blame everyone but themselves.

The constant excuses and blame-shifting won’t wash with the people I represent across Denton and Reddish who are seeing their energy bills soar, tax bills rise and wages stagnate. They will ask themselves: Am I or my family better off with the Tories? And the answer will be a resounding no.

Labour are the only party that would prioritise the interests of working people. We would implement a New Deal for Working People, fix business rates, close the tax loopholes benefitting the big energy producers profiting from the war in Ukraine, get rid of immoral non-dom tax status and use it to fund free school meals and the biggest expansion of the NHS workforce in living memory; We would create a publicly-owned energy company, build energy resilience and invest in high-quality green jobs.

The difference between Labour’s vision for the economy and the statement Jeremy Hunt delivered today couldn’t be more stark. Britain has so much potential, but we are being held back by this Tory Government. It’s time for change

It was my honour to pay respect to the fallen at Denton Central, Christ Church, Denton West and Dukinfield last Sunday.

Due the amount of services that take place locally, there are often clashes which mean I can't attend each one. A big thanks, therefore, to Holly McCormack ([link removed]) for representing me at Stockport's main service, and to Paul Wright and Rachel Wise for doing the same in Reddish.

Also, big thanks to Nick Axford ([link removed]) and Team Audenshaw ([link removed]) for laying my wreath at the main Audenshaw service at the War memorial in the cemetery.

And lastly on Sunday, a massive THANK YOU to teacher, Jack Edwards and the pupils of Reddish Vale High School ([link removed]) for raising a fantastic £150.67 for Royal British Legion ([link removed]) .

Jack’s dad (on the right) is the Poppy Appeal Organiser for Royal British Legion Stalybridge & Dukinfield ([link removed]) .

A huge well done 👏🏻

** 🎅🏻 Christ Church Denton's Christmas Fair

Nice to drop into Christ Church Denton ([link removed]) ’s Christmas Fair on Saturday with the Team Denton West ([link removed]) Councillors. Lots of Christmas gift ideas and items to buy. Amazing food too. Oh and I got to cuddle a chihuahua that wasn’t Lottie? 🐕

📰 READ: In the latest edition of the Tameside Reporter ([link removed]) , I've written about the approaching festive season, and why Christmas will sadly feel very different for millions of people feeling the force of the cost of living crisis.

I've been really inspired by local initiatives like Action Together ([link removed]) 's Tameside Toy Appeal, which allows you to safely donate toys at one of the local drop-off points across Tameside. You can support the appeal here: [link removed] 👈

There are also incredible volunteers operating food banks and community pantries right across the local area, with a full list available here: [link removed] ([link removed]) 👈

📰 READ: Thanks to the Manchester Evening News for covering my thoughts on the Boundary Commission's latest proposals (click here ([link removed]) to read).

This work is being done because the Government has imposed a rigid electoral quota for each seat on the Boundary Commission.

There are some significant changes being proposed, not least the abolition of the Denton and Reddish constituency. There will be three 'new' seats locally drawn on updated boundaries. Under these new boundaries, I would be the Member of Parliament for the Denton and Gorton constituency.

Whilst I am obviously incredibly sad to see the abolition of the Denton and Reddish constituency that is my home, I am relieved that the Commission has taken on local consultation, and addressed community and social links across local towns.

Therefore I am asking (if you are able to) to submit your views in support of the Boundary Commission proposals by their deadline of 5th December 2022 using their online form at ([link removed]) 👈

** Guide Bridge Station Coal Wagon Project

🚂 The WOODHEAD RAILWAY MUSEUM ([link removed]) and Friends of Guide Bridge Station ([link removed]) are restoring an old coal truck for the Guide Bridge Station memorial garden.

Apparently the truck will be painted in the liveries of the Ashton Moss colliery in Audenshaw and Denton colliery…

Thank you to WRM, FoGBS and Network Rail ([link removed]) for restoring a bit of our industrial heritage. I can’t wait to see it in place!

A GoFundMe has been set up for the Coal Wagon project for anyone who wishes to make a kind donation towards the restoration work. If you are able and wish to donate click here ([link removed]) .
