The volunteer network established by Jon Cruddas MP for Dagenham and Rainham back in 2012 has come on leaps and bounds. The network not only works as an ear on the street for Jon and the local authority, it is a fantastic opportunity for local residents to get involved in a number of community projects and campaigns.

The network not only works as an ear on the street for Jon and local authorities, it is a fantastic opportunity for local residents to get involved in a number of community projects and campaigns.

With growing local interest in the Chadwell Heath Community Centre Anne Estlea recently attended Jon Cruddas’s annual volunteer breakfast morning. It was a great chance for Anne to highlight the progress and plans for the centre to local volunteers and Jon.

Jon, who is now a trustee of the CHCC said: “It was great to finally meet Anne, she is very driven and I can see she will get things done, bringing constant growth and improvement to the new centre. I can’t wait to see the Community Centre when the refurbishment is finished in October and it is up and running.

Today (Friday18th July) Jon Cruddas MP held his third annual volunteer thank you breakfast. This year 80 of Jon’s key volunteers in the area were treated to a full English at Dagenham and Redbridge Football Club.

From the start back in 2012 the volunteer network has grown to include over 1,900 local residents. The goal was to increase community engagement in Dagenham, Rainham, South Hornchurch and Elm Park where people were beginning to fall through the cracks that government cuts created locally.
