Merry Christmas Dagenham and Rainham

Dec 19, 2016

As Christmas draws closer and 2016 comes to an end, I think it is important to remember all the victories we have shared in the past 12 months. Together we have successfully deferred many plans that would have seen our green spaces compromised across Rainham, South Hornchurch, and Elm Park at Ingrebourne Hill, Dovers Farm, and in Wennington Village. In Dagenham, after an 18 month campaign we secured the future of the iconic Civic Centre with Coventry University leasing the building to offer the boroughs first Higher Education facility.

Sleepless in Dagenham and Rainham

Nov 22, 2016

It’s that time of year again – the Jon Cruddas MP Dagenham and Rainham Christmas Card Competition! This year was bigger than ever with 21 local schools taking part and 21 local businesses sponsoring the event.

Yet again, this month saw the Council Chamber at the Dagenham Civic Centre turn into an explosion of colour! This year there were thousands of cards, making it harder than ever for Jon Cruddas to choose the winning design. However after much deliberation Jon finally settled on a card designed by Daniel Moorey, age 6 from Brady Primary School in Rainham.

Dec 18, 2015

This year has been a turbulent journey for Dagenham & Rainham with the local authority suffering even more cuts to services from the government, which has impacted hard on people that live and work in the local area. Throughout the year I have opposed the cuts, starting the year with the fight to save the Dagenham Civic Centre.
