Today it was my pleasure to attend a brilliant day of education, celebration, and collaboration as part of black history month.

The event, held at St Paul’s Community Centre on Barley Lane, was organised by local residents of Chadwell ward.

I would like to extend my thanks to all involved, including my parliamentary colleagues Kate Osamor MP and Bell Riberio-Addy MP for joining us alongside Ify Adenuga, Michelle Harewood, and Leon Lynch.

Special thanks go to Dr. Gwen Nneji-Nwankwo and Emeka Nwankwo and their friends and family who worked so hard to put on an important and really outstanding event.
