Chelsea and Fulham MP Greg Hands has opened his diary for July in his latest e-newsletter. He has recently:

  • Attended the charity fundraiser of the Royal Brompton Hospital foundation, held at the Chelsea Physic Garden. The hospital has been given a reprieve by Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt, after the Safe and Sustainable review threatened to close children’s heart surgery at the Royal Brompton.
  • Met, together with local residents, the developers of the proposed Hurlingham Retail Park development to the immediate west of Wandsworth Bridge. Greg is concerned by the height and the density of this proposed development.
  • Visited local Fulham entrepreneurs who run Patrona Luggage Limited. Patrona has benefitted from Coalition Government support for entrepreneurs, such as the EIS and SEIS schemes, and National Insurance taxbreaks.
  • Attended the summer garden party of the Old Church Street Residents Association, Chelsea, held at the Chelsea Arts Club.
  • Led a team of enthusiastic Conservative canvassers in Fulham Reach ward, campaigning to re-elect a Conservative Council in Hammersmith & Fulham in May 2014. To get involved, please contact Greg.
