Local groups with their own community buildings are able to apply to the Power Partners Fund for grants of up to £20,000 to make energy efficiency improvements.

Stevenage MP, Stephen McPartland, said, "I know there are groups using their own buildings which could benefit from these grants to improve energy efficiency to give a better environment and help to save money. The Power Partners Fund can help make a difference, so if your group has a suitable project it could be the opportunity to turn it into reality."

UK Power Networks has set up the £300,000 Power Partners Fund which will give up to 40 grants to not-for-profit organisations and community groups of between £2,000 and £20,000 to be more energy efficient and save money through improvements and advice. Publically owned buildings are not eligible. The fund will be adminstered in partnership with the Centre for Sustainable Energy and applications for the first round of grants close on 18th February. To apply please go to the CSE website: www.cse.org.uk/projects/view/1356

Local elections decide how much Council Tax you pay and who runs the local services we all rely on. Why not stand as a Conservative Council Candidate?

Stephen McPartland, Member of Parliament for Stevenage, said, "Why not join our team and help me make a real difference in our community? We are committed to campaiging for a Council that listens to local people, instead of ignoring them and wasting taxpayers money on vanity projects, such as new council offices.

"To put our policies into action, we need to win elections and that means we need even more people to join our enthusiastic team. Someone, who wants to give a little back and serve their community. Being a councillor is an extremely rewarding experience. It gives you the opportunity to help your community and be part of a dedicated local team.

"We know you’ve got a busy life. But with evening meetings and flexibility about how you make the role work for you, being a Councillor means you can balance work and family. Helping you make a real difference in our community – and lead on the issues you are passionate about."

Stephen McPartland MP marked Holocaust Memorial Day by signing the Holocaust Educational Trust's Book of Commitment in the Houses of Parliament. It honours the victims and pays tribute to survivors on the Anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp.

Stephen McPartland MP said, “Holocaust Memorial Day is an important opportunity for people to reflect on the tragic events of the Holocaust. It reminds us all how intolerance and hate in communities can lead to the destruction of so many lives. We must never let the politics of hate lead to such tragic events ever again. As the Holocaust moves from living history, to ‘just’ history, it becomes ever more important that we take the time to remember the victims and also pay tribute to the survivors.”

Karen Pollock MBE, Chief Executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust, said, “The Holocaust did not start in the gas chambers but with hate filled words. Our mission is to educate young people from every background about the Holocaust and its contemporary relevance. We are very grateful to Stephen McPartland MP for signing the Book of Commitment, signalling a continued commitment to remembering the victims of the Holocaust as well as challenging antisemitism, prejudice and bigotry in all its forms.”

Holocaust Memorial Day is on 27th January and marks the anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration and death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau, the site of the largest mass murder in history.

Police Dog Finn visited Parliament with PC Dave Wardell to hear Finn's Law receive unanimous support in the Committee Stage of the Bill.

Stephen McPartland, Member of Parliament for Stevenage, said, "I was delighted to sit on the committee, which is trying to make Finn's law a reality. The Bill, whose full title is the Animal Welfare (Service Animals) Bill, is making steady progress through Parliament, ably led by my colleague the Rt Hon Sir Oliver Heald MP. The Bill passed the committee stages with unanious support, while Police Dog Finn looked on inside the committee room with us. The final step in the House of Commons, we hope will be in early February for Thirs Reading and then it is off to the House of Lords.

"The Law will only apply to England at the moment, but the deveolved administrations in Northern ireland, Scotland and Wales are also keen to see the changes happen there too. None of this would have been possible without the huge support we have received from the public in Stevenage, East and North Hertfordshire."
