Tackling FGM at home and abroad

Marina Yannakoudakis London MEP kicked off the New Year by meeting with the Orchid Project to discuss the brilliant work they do to help eradicate Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) by partnering projects in Africa. Greater awareness of FGM is desperately needed.

Charities such as the Orchid Project can offer great insights into how to tackle FGM. Thousands of women and girls in London are currently at risk.

Marina is planning conferences to help raise this issue both in London and Brussels. For more information contact: marina.yannakoudakis@europarl.europa.eu

Raising awareness of allergies

Marina participated in a skin prick test in support of her written declaration on allergies this month. The event sought to highlight the prevalence of allergies and encourage people to get tested. An estimated 21 million British adults suffer from one or more allergies. The UK has one of the highest incident rates for allergies in the world and the NHS spends nearly £1 billion a year on treating them. Marina will continue to raise awareness of this issue and fight for better treatment.

Cllr Peter Geiringer presents a painting of the Cock pub to Sutton's MayorConservative Councillor Peter Geiringer has given a painting showing the Cock pub, which used to stand in the town centre, to Sutton Council.  He came across the painting whilst at an auction.  The painting, which Cllr Geiringer donated at Monday’s Full Council meeting, will hang on a wall of the mayor’s parlour at Sutton Civic Offices in St Nicholas Way.

Cllr Geiringer, who has been a councillor for more than 33 years has an equal interest in art and had been looking for some time for a particular painting for Sutton.

The painting shows the Cock pub, which stood where the sign of the Cock is at the cross-roads of the High Street and Carshalton Road.
