Robert Jenrick: Increase in jobs is helping give more people security and stability

Robert Jenrick has welcomed new figures showing the number of people in work in the Newark constituency has risen by nearly 8,000 since 2010, with the number of people no longer relying on unemployment benefit falling by over 300. Robert Jenrick said: “There are now nearly 8,000 more people in work since the last general election, with over 300 fewer people relying on unemployment benefit. This is great news for our area – every new job means another family with the stability and security of a regular pay packet. “This is more evidence that things have been improving locally under the Conservatives’ long-term economic plan. It’s only by sticking with this plan that things will to continue to improve in our local area – securing a better and brighter future for people in Newark, Bingham, Southwell and Tuxford.”   Notes & attribution: The number of people in work in Newark has increased by 7,800 since 2010 – that’s nearly 8,000 more people with the security and stability of a regular pay packet. In April 2009-March 2010 (the last full period there are figures for under Labour) there were 44,900 people in work.

Bingham Methodist Church Building Project Moves One Step Closer

Bingham Methodist Church Building Project Moves One Step Closer

Bingham Methodist Church’s ambitious scheme to replace the old Methodist Church with a new multi-purpose church and community centre has moved one step closer with full planning consent being approved by Bingham Town Council. No objections to the proposals were received from the public or raised by the planning committee and the plans will now pass to Rushcliffe Borough Council for final approval. A decision is expected by 15 June 2014. Bingham Methodist Church has so far raised £1.7m via its BReAD appeal towards the building work and fundraising is continuing to cover the cost of internal fixtures and fittings. Once full planning permission is secured work is provisionally scheduled to begin from 1st December 2014 and be completed in time for Christmas celebrations in 2015. The new centre will provide a multi-use seated area with audio/visual facilities to be used for meetings such as U3A and Women’s Guild, whilst also providing a worship space for both Catholic Mass and Methodist Services on a Sunday. The plans feature a large hall with three smaller meeting rooms, and an entrance space with tables and chairs where coffee can be served. It will be designed to minimise energy consumption and use new technologies. The new development will provide much better access particularly for the disabled and will provide a focal point for the town centre. The Rev Richard Tanner said: “Fourteen years after we first had the vision to create a new church and community centre in the heart of Bingham we are nearly there. With our town rapidly expanding, the facilities we can provide are going to be needed more...
