The hub, located in the heart of the store, aims to bring charities and community representatives close to people by giving them a space to meet with residents, share ideas and help with problems. The Liberal Democrat MP, who normally holds a weekly advice surgery at either Wood Green or Hornsey Library, this week had a steady flow of residents keen to get help with a range of community or personal problems.
The Hornsey and Wood Green MP has one of the UK’s busiest constituency offices, having dealt with close to 40,000 constituency queries since becoming an MP in 2005.
Any Hornsey and Wood Green resident who wants to raise an issue with Lynne or book an appointment, should either email on firstname.lastname@example.org or call the office on 020 8340 5459.
Lynne Featherstone MP comments:
“Budgens has always been a bit of a revolutionary shop, championing local green work, be it by providing local produce or aiming to clear Crouch End of plastic bags.
“The new community hub is right up that street. Shoppers here today could kill two birds with one stone, getting their weekly shop done, and getting help with that nagging local issue that they haven’t had time to raise with me yet.
“And anyone who has an issue they want to raise with me, don’t hesitate to call or email – I’m always happy to help!”
