Boris has been back in the Black Country today to deliver an important speech as Britain prepares, cautiously, to come out of hibernation.

On #ArmedForcesDay I'd like to pay tribute to the great work done by the military in the battle against covid-19. 

From logistics to testing, they've done us proud 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧

Open for Business

We are open for business in Bloxwich, Willenhall and Walsall North!

It’s great to see local shops open again like Ferguson Family Eye Care in Leamore, and Greggs in Bloxwich.

Mental Health Guide

Our mental health and our physical health are just as important as each other. That’s why, particularly at the moment, we need to make sure that we, our friends and our family look after our mental health as much as possible.

A Big Thank You From Boris

Not so long ago Boris was in hospital seriously ill due to coronavirus. 

As promised, I passed on your messages and well wishes from Bloxwich, Willenhall and Walsall North for his speedy recovery. 

Wear a Mask

Please remember that you must wear a face mask, or other form of face covering, on all public transport from today - Monday, 15th June.

Food is prepared daily by volunteers at Guru Nanak Gurdwara Willenhall and then given out to local residents in need.

I was delighted that they invited me to see this great work for myself.

The British Army Testing in Walsall

I'm incredibly grateful to the British Army for giving me a tour of the very efficient, temporary test centre they have set up at Walsall College , processing approximately 400 tests per day. This is apparently one of 90 similar centres they have established across the country.
