Mims Davies MP – Summer Recess Update!

Dear Constituents

Summer recess allows MPs to spend more time to carry out important constituency work. It’s the best bit of the job and one of the reasons why I opened a constituency office in Burgess Hill.

Recess also allows hardworking Parliament staff such as the clerks, doorkeepers, catering and cleaning teams to take a much-deserved break. The House of Commons remains open to visitors during recess periods, giving more people an opportunity to see the home of our democracy. If you’re interested in a tour of Parliament, please do get in touch with me.

August can be something of a quiet month in the news, especially now as it is not until 4th September when Parliament is due to return. My small, dedicated, team and I have continued to work hard during the summer lull.

Over the summer, my team and I have worked on record amounts of queries and casework, so I wanted to talk about the sort of work we do day-in-day out that is not made public.

To give an example of what the email inbox might bring in on any given day, this might include queries about the Passport Office, about driving licences, about Ukrainian visa applications, planning applications, GP appointments, and energy bills. We cannot always solve a problem, but we always try to do whatever we can to help, to advise, or to raise through official channels.

I have also had the opportunity to meet more, local hardworking, independent businesses in Mid Sussex. Martin Haslam, from Keymer Haslam, has been in the area many years and it was lovely to catch up with him over a cuppa at the brilliant Up Market 22 café and chat to Scott and Darren about their special and unique venue that also supports other local traders. Another innovative business is Once Upon a Boutique where it was great to see the amazing transformation Becky has made to these premises -offering some fabulous party packages from mini manicures, hair styling and much more for your little princess and their friends.

In the meantime, if you would like to share your thoughts on national policy, or need assistance with a bespoke casework query, please do not hesitate to contact my office on either 0207 219 6853 or by emailing mims.davies.mp@parliament.uk

With my best wishes

Mims
