Stevenage MP, Stephen McPartland, welcomed the new that the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust have won a bid for additional investment in their ambulance sites, including the Stevenage station, to put in facilities to clean and equip vehicles to get them back on the road more quickly.

Stephen McPartland, Member of Parliament for Stevenage, said, "Our ambulance service does a fantastic job, providing immediate care to local people. The crews and staff are dedicated hardworking local people and this further investment in the Stevenage ambulance station reflects our support for them.

"I can see that having better facilities will directly support better patient care, not only by getting to patients in need more quickly by speeding up things behind the scenes, but also supporting our dedicated crews to help them, help local people when we need it most.”

This significant investment will improve facilities and enable crews to save time, and so increase their availability to respond to patients in the community. Stevenage was one of ten sites that is in need of this service. EEAST applied for funding as part of a nationwide funding boost for the NHS’s 70th birthday from the Department of Health and Social Care.

Woolenwick Infant and Nursery School invited Stephen McPartland, Member of Parliament for Stevenage, as a special guest to their summer exhibition. The children showcased their creative learning, based on their discovery of an animal skull on the school's site and sculptures by Simon Axford-Jones in Symonds Green.

Stephen McPartland MP commented. “The video and exhibition were amazing and the imagination of the children is awe-inspiring. The exhibition stems from the children's discovery of the animal skull and that there may have been a sheep farm here in the past.”

The exhibits included the children’s felt collages, models and sculpture as well as a life sized sheep family, created in wire by artist, Emma Walker, returning sheep to the Woolenwick landscape.

The Carping4Charity team have been at it again! With the weather beating down on us all, Local carpers where back on Fairlands Valley lake for another 24 hour fundraising fishing match, this year raising vital funds for the Essex & Herts Air Amublance Service.

Stephen McPartland MP said, "It is always great fun and although I am not a fisherman myself, it is amazing how much effort goes into this event. It shows the real community spirit at the heart of our town."

Mark Clifford-Smith, Chairman of Stevenage Carping 4 Charity, said, "We managed to raise a big total of £1,120. One of our young fishermen, Mark Wells, who used up his time and sacrificed a school trip just to help out, raised £90 from school - well done Mark we are very proud of you! We would also like to thank Stephen McPartland MP for supporting us on our yearly match. We hope you all enjoyed yourselves and did not get too sunburnt."

Carping4Charity had support from a number of donors: £300 from Angling Direct, £200 in vouchers from Rigmarole and xcell baits for two session packs. Thanks also to Mick Lilse for donating the second prize bag of goodies. An auction for a French fishing trip for two people raised £450, donated by Les Etang De Chantereine.

Stephen McPartland, Member of Parliament for Stevenage, said “I am proud of our NHS and delighted the Conservative Government is investing another £20 billion a year. This is almost £400 million a week extra for more doctors, nurses and an NHS fit for the future.

“I am delighted NHS unions are supporting the Government’s 3 year NHS pay deal meaning over 1,000,000 NHS staff will receive a pay rise. It means a newly qualified nurse will see their pay rise by over £2,500, whilst staff on the lowest grades like hospital caterers, porters and administrators will receive a wage increase of more than £2,000 this year.

“I will keep campaigning to make sure our local NHS has the staff and facilities it needs to continue to provide top quality care for everyone.”
