This week, it was confirmed at the Cabinet meeting of Hammersmith & Fulham Council that the Brunswick Club for Young People will continue to receive council funding. As you will recall, earlier this year, Labour-run LBHF suddenly cut the club’s funding. Together with local Conservative Councillors I campaigned to have this vital funding re-instated. 2,837 residents signed my petition and the Council have listened to this local protest.
It is great news for our community that the youth club can continue to offer its provision for local young people. I would like to thank constituents for adding their signature to my petition – together we have achieved a great result!
I also sought assurances from Chelsea Football Club about the potential purchase of land at Sir Oswald Stoll Mansions in Fulham, and the impact this plan would have on current veterans and residents. I remain committed to being an important stakeholder in these discussions and look forward to further engagement with Chelsea FC, the Stoll Foundation and the Fulham Medical Centre. Read more about these discussions below.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
The Rt Hon Greg Hands MP
Member of Parliament for Chelsea and Fulham
