MP calls in

Blackpool South MP Gordon Marsden was a welcome visitor to the Happy House stand at Blackpool Civic Trust's street party yesterday.
Sadly, the bad weather forced the event, showcasing the work of local organisations, indoors. Mr Marsden was so interested in how the Happy House is changing young lives and said he had been following the series of articles featuring Sue and the family in Blackpool Gazette this week.
He very kindly took a clutch of leaflets to put out at his constituency garden party yesterday afternoon.
A big thank you to Karen Miles and her daughters Melissa and Lauren, Andrea (pictured)  Manders and daughter Ellena, and to Lynn Baya Thoya who joined Elizabeth on the stand - and also to our charity's key members, Mama Sue and Papa Dave.
Hopefully, we will get some new friends from the leaflets were distributed.
Today we are at Dotty Delightful's Truly Scrumptious Vintage Craft Fair in Blackpool's Winter Gardens from 10am-4pm. It's a bumper event and well worth a visit if you are anywhere nearby.
