Great to catch up with the @NorthComBank team in #Ashington today - the #CommunityBank I helped start, with many others, in 2015 here in #Northumberland 1/ ImageImageImageImage
We started small in the #Tynedale area of #Northumberland but immediately got noticed by BBC, ITV, FT, Mail and others because here was a #bank run for people not for profit…
We could not have started without the support + help from @HexhamAbbey @bishopnorwich @DagmarKirk + most of all @JohnSentamu - see him at our launch 3/…

After significant #rainfall across #Northumberland, I have visited villages with high river levels in #Tynedale, and spoken with local Cllr's + @EnvAgency. Thankfully no threat to properties on this part of the #Tyne. Will be visiting the #RiverRede tomorrow.
The #Tyne is high -see #Hexham today - but a v long way off #StormDesmond levels, +flood defences doing a good job. #Kielder reservoir acting as a buffer, as no water down the spillway, thereby reducing by over 10% levels downriver. But pls be #FloodAware by the waters edge 2/
Lots of standing water on roads whether in Warden, Hexham, Corbridge or country lanes - please report these -
+ be v v careful when driving, walking on riverside footpaths + on no account tackle a ford 3/ Image

Great to meet the #Tynedale #NCS students helping at Dene Grange in #Hexham today. #Team2Northumberland leading the way 👍 ImageImageImage
I am doing all I can to promote the #NationalCitizenshipService.
It is a gt way for 16/17 yr olds to meet new friends, develop skills, open their minds + expand their viewpoints. The opportunities it offers, at a tiny cost, are genuinely life charging many will testify 2/
Yesterday’s event underlined this: #Team2Northumberland were a delight to meet. We discussed a lot but the issues / ethics session showed a real understanding of equality issues, an assertion of abortion rights, and a progressive view in favour of legalised assisted dying 3/

Great to spend some time in #Tynedale yesterday with @Robbie4PCC - the @Conservatives candidate for @northumbriapol Police + Crime Commissioner. As a local @N_landCouncil County Councillor Robbie knows #Northumberland really well + will do an outstanding job if elected. ImageImage
The By-Election is on 18 July 2019 as Vera Baird has resigned, and polling cards have already gone out. I am looking forward to campaigning for @Robbie4PCC + ensuring we prioritise the importance of keeping all our communities safe
Robbie + I discussed 2 key priorities for #Tynedale on his visit to Stocksfield, Mickley& Prudhoe:
- that the police use resources (which have recently gone up) properly
+ that the @northumbriapol do not forget rural areas - rural #Northumberland often felt ignored by Vera Baird
