|A few weeks in the life...|

The last couple of weeks have been as hectic as ever. You can find out about all the things I’ve been getting up to as Minister for Communities and Local Government by clicking here.
Last night I attended the Mayor’s Civic Award in Wandsworth Town Hall. It was good to see so many local community activists being honoured by the Mayor of Wandsworth. W e are extremely lucky in Tooting to have so many residents willing to be volunteers and give up their time for the benefit of the wider community.
I also was able to take along two local residents to a reception held at No. 10 Downing Street by the Prime Minister to commemorate Black History Month. My former teacher at Ernest Bevin College, Rodney Dove and Minister Moses Juma from the Yahweh Christian fellowship, were my two guests at the event. It was really humbling to see so many black British role models celebrating their achievement with the Prime Minister.
I’m really pleased by the announcement today by the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions James Purnell MP, that the Post Office has retained the Post Office Card Account. This will mean a great deal for local Post Offices, and will enable them to carry on performing their important role at the centre of our community.
