Milton Keynes Liberal Democrats are delighted to announce that Sarah Green MP will be joining us for a Christmas Buffet and quiz. The event will be from 6:30pm until 9pm on Friday 10 December at Milton Keynes College in Bletchely.
There will be a buffet meal provided, with some Christmas themed options included as part of the buffet. The venue has a bar where people can buy soft or alcholic drinks during the meal and afterwards. Following the meal there will be a fun general knowledge quiz which has been put together by some local members.
Three leading cabinet members are encouraging conversations around consent, healthy relationships and women's safety - as research shows that 71% of all women have experienced some form of sexual harassment in a public place.
But nearly half (45%) of women say they would not report sexual harassment because they believe nothing would change.
Progressive Alliance Cabinet members have written to the Chair of the Clinical Commissioning Group for Milton Keynes raising concerns about young people's mental health.
The letter, written by Councillors Emily Darlington and Jane Carr, asks for an update on the commissioning work for young people's mental health in Milton Keynes, and if anything has changed since pupils went back to school in September.
Milton Keynes Council secured funding to issue 8,858 supermarket e-vouchers worth £151,275 as part of their MK COVID Holiday Help Scheme over the October half term.
Liberal Democrat Councillor Jane Carr, Cabinet Member for Tackling Inequality and Child Poverty, said:
"Last year, the Child Poverty Commission found almost 23,000 children were living in poverty in Milton Keynes. This a heart-breaking number, and the Progressive Alliance has been working tirelessly to reduce it."
Only around 130 families in Milton Keynes have been supported to better insulate their homes under the government's flagship Green Homes Grant scheme, new figures have revealed.
The scheme was meant to help people upgrade their homes to net-zero standards and cut their energy bills through fitting better insulation or heat pumps, but was scrapped earlier this year after just six months. However, figures uncovered by the Liberal Democrats show how the scheme has failed families in the local area.
