This week Jon Cruddas MP was one of over 100 MPs that co-signed a letter to the Prime Minister urging action on the ‘unscrupulous contract changes’ announced by Sainsbury’s in March. The changes being proposed would see some employees receive a welcome pay rise, whilst 10 per cent of staff would suffer a staggering loss in wages of up to £3,000 per year.

Do you 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 currently 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.
