Street­ing is just one of the Chaps

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY - BY JC REPORTER

IL­FORD NORTH MP Wes Street­ing dis­cussed is­sues rang­ing from lo­cal coun­cil con­cerns to pres­sures on the NHS when he vis­ited the Chaps That Chat group at Jewish Care’s Red­bridge Com­mu­nity Cen­tre.

“Given the re­cent con­tro­versy in the Labour Party con­cern­ing Ken Liv­ing­stone, it was par­tic­u­larly heart­en­ing to re­ceive such a warm wel­come and sup­port for the stance I’ve taken to com­bat an­tisemitism within the Labour Party and wider so­ci­ety,” Mr Street­ing said after­wards.

“It’s fan­tas­tic to see the en­thu­si­asm that Sid Green puts into or­gan­is­ing this reg­u­lar group. The num­ber of peo­ple at­tend­ing each time is a real credit to his ded­i­ca­tion and com­mit­ment.”

The MP also ac­knowl­edged “the im­por­tant work” done by the wel­fare char­ity in sup­port­ing el­derly Jews liv­ing in the Red­bridge and sur­round­ing ar­eas.
