James Brokenshire has held his first ‘drop-in’ MP’s surgery at McDonalds in Sidcup on Friday. Local residents and customers at the restaurant were able to highlight local issues and discuss any concerns over a cup of coffee.
James was able to discuss the works going on in Sidcup High Street as part of the Sidcup Town Area Renewal or STAR scheme. The work will see pavements widened, new trees planted and new artwork installed on Nesbitt Walk between Morrison’s car park and the High Street.
James also spoke about the new Cancer Centre at Queen Mary’s, planning permission for which has recently been sent to the Council for approval. The centre will see three new radiotherapy treatment rooms and six new chemotherapy chairs, giving local patients the ability to receive quality treatment closer to home and strengthening the range of services provided at the Queen Mary’s site.
Commenting James said: “I value the opportunity to get out and meet local people to discuss whatever is on their minds. Events like this are a good additional to my regular advice surgeries and doorstep calls on residents at the weekend. I look forward to holding more open drop in sessions at McDonalds and other venues across the constituency.”
