Apr 17, 2014

Remember the Robert Jeyes Library? After local Ward Councillors and various charity groups campaigned hard for the library to stay open and continue providing its services earlier this year, we have some more great news! It is now being converted into the Chadwell Heath Community Centre (CHCC), and will provide more services to the local community on top of those the library used to provide.

Jon Cruddas MP - Merry Christmas to Dagenham and Rainham

Dec 19, 2013

It’s that time of year again and I would like to take this opportunity to wish every family, community and neighbourhood in Dagenham, Rainham, South Hornchurch and Elm Park a very Merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year. 

I know that for many in the constituency, 2013 was a year of hard times. With government cuts introduced in April, and the cost of living rising above wages my office has been working to make sure people don’t fall through the cracks, helping as many as we can.
