Tony Colman MP speaks to Putney
met last week with NHS representatives and I see that they
have Queen Mary's Community Hospital contracts have now been
signed off by Wandsworth PCT. Putney Hospital site has now
been signed off to three Putney General Practices. The rest
of the site is to be given over to key worker housing.
also met with representatives from Crossrail and am pushing
for a move on with Crossrail 2 which should really improve
transport connections in our area.
have also kept up my lobbying on improving bus connection
through Putney, including to Hammersmith via the Wetland Centre.
of you are still suffering from night flight noise and I have
been lobby the Department of Transport to ensure that night
flight restrictions are not breached in the Heathrow area.
We fought very hard for such restriction and none of us want
to see them flouted, rather I am fighting for their strengthening.
always at this time of year Putney has provided a wealth of
fundraising fetes and fairs. I attended the fete at Albermarle
School and Putney Animal Hospital's Summer Fair. I am very
pleased to have been voted President of the Roehampton garden
Society which is one of those organisations that really emphasises
traditional Putney values.
Putney Arts theatre once again put on a wonderful event honouring
the great contribution made by Maurice Copus, a portrait unveiling
took place on Wednesday evening I would thoughoughly recommend
the farce currently being performed at this excellent local
also attended the Wimbledon Village show which demonstrated
what wonderful events can be arranged by local conservators.
Since Wandsworth Council have cut the Wandsworth Show I wonder
if the Commons Conservators and Putney Society might like
to consider resurrecting the show independently and show the
Council what can be done.
people seem to have been as enthusiastic about the new Harry
Potter book as the rest of the country, I joined the queue
at the Children's Treasury bookshop in Southfields with my
week many MPs have been lobbied regarding trade justice. I
consider this a particularly important issue and support the
call for rich countries to remove trade barriers and heavy
subsidisation of large scale farming - which makes the terms
of trade for poorer countries unfair. I co-hosted an event
with martin Linton, MP for Battersea, which was an extra surgery
held at the House of Commons on the morning of Friday the
27th. Putney residents who were not able to make the lobby
are welcome to contact me and I will add their concerns to
those already communicated to Patricia Hewitt.
chair of the UN All Party Group I was very happy to host Jean-Marie
Guehenno, one of the UN's top experts on peacekeeping. I also
took part in a discussion group about reform of the UN in
the long term.
