Rainham Resident Launches Road Safety Campaign

Apr 06, 2017

Rainham resident Fay Hough has launched a campaign for safer streets in the heart of Rainham. With the support of Jon Cruddas MP, Fay is asking the London Borough of Havering to consider introducing safety measures on Upminster Road South. As a local resident Fay has noticed an increase in speeding and reckless driving near schools and throughout the village, something that a recent survey from Jon Cruddas MP also found. Speaking to other residents there are growing concerns regarding the dangerous driving and growing number of Mopeds in Rainham Village.

Local MP lends support to TUC campaign

Apr 05, 2017

The Trade Union Congress (TUC) have launched a campaign, Dying to Work, that aims to protect the jobs of the terminally ill.  The Equality Act 2010 does not currently prevent employers from dismissing those with a terminal diagnosis if they fail a capability assessment that has been ‘reasonably’ adjusted.

Mar 09, 2017

Over the last two months, many residents of Rainham, South Hornchurch, and Elm Park have noticed an increase in crime and anti-social behaviour in and around their neighbourhoods.

Save Dagenham and Hornchurch Jobcentres

Feb 17, 2017

Last month the Government proposed to close the Dagenham Jobcentre on Chequers Lane, meaning the nearest Jobcentre for residents in Dagenham would be in Barking on Wakering Rd. Similarly the Jobcentre in Hornchurch is set to close leaving Romford Town Centre as the closest service for residents of Rainham, South Hornchurch and Elm Park. Jon Cruddas MP was outraged at the proposals and sought to discuss the plans with the Minister for Employment and the DWP.

86 bus route campaign

Jan 16, 2017

During 2016 local councillors and Labour Party members in Whalebone Ward Dagenham started campaigning to extend the number 86 bus route into Queen’s Hospital. There is currently no direct route for the people living in Chadwell Heath to get to Queen’s Hospital, leaving often elderly residents having to walk to the hospital from Romford Station. Whilst only 0.6 miles in distance, there are two busy junctions including a roundabout to navigate, with poorly lit underpasses which may be daunting for some residents.

Jon Cruddas MP for Dagenham and Rainham has recently thrown his support behind a new campaign, which seeks to support people in debt crisis that suffer from mental health issues. The campaign has been launched by the Money and mental Health Policy Institute, and has brought cross-party support, as well as the backing of a number of charities such as Mind, Rethink and StepChange.

Number 5 Bus - Public Consultation

Aug 09, 2016

Over the last year a huge campaign has been run across the borough to get the number 5 bus rerouted so that it stops at Queen’s Hospital in Romford. The number 5 goes straight through the borough and would be of great benefit for people, meaning that residents would only have to take one bus rather than changing – or making the walk from Romford town centre.

Dovers Farm Estate Green

Jul 29, 2016

Green spaces are at the heart of every community. They represent a space where people have precedence, a space where they are free from cars and concrete, where the eye is drawn to trees and skylines, not concrete and glass. A safe space for children to play, families to congregate, converse and communities to learn about each other.

Local MP backs PLA Cleaner Thames Campaign

Jun 08, 2016

The Port of London Authority recently launched a campaign as part of the Cleaner Thames Campaign where artist Michelle Reader created a sculpture made of litter to highlight the amount of dumped rubbish found in the Thames. Experts from the Royal Holloway University of London had conducted extensive research to find that 75% of Thames Flounder fish had consumed plastic. Dagenham and Rainham MP Jon Cruddas actively advocated his support.
