Therese Calls for Filmmakers to Enter Film The House Parliamentary Competition

Therese is calling for local creators to enter Parliament's prestigious Film the House competition, which offers entrants the opportunity put themselves in direct contact with the movers and shakers of the film industry.

Judged initially by Therese, MP's recommendations are put forward for a further round of judging by industry professionals, with prizes provided by industry sponsors, which in 2017 included mentoring from professionals in the film industry, a private screening of the winners' films for friends and family and classification of the winning films by BBFC.

Therese said: "Suffolk has always been a hotbed of creativity – and this competition gives young film-makers the unique opportunity to get in front of industry experts to help them achieve their goals.

I look forwarded to nominating talented individuals from Suffolk Coastal."

More information on how you can apply for the competition and the criteria for entry can be found at: www.filmthehouse.co.uk

Therese Presses Greater Anglia over Saxmundham Station

Therese is continuing to press Greater Anglia to suitably re-establish Saxmundham railway station. The station building, seating and information boards continue to be fenced off following the serious fire in February.

Therese said: "Greater Anglia are currently awaiting a surveyors report before being able to decide what they can do to repair the station but they assure me that any future options will be discussed with local stakeholders."

"I will update local residents when I have more information."

Take Part in EquilTeas to Celebrate 100 Years of Women's Votes

This week as part of the celebrations to mark the 100 year anniversary since Parliament gave women the vote, Therese attended the unveiling of a statue of Suffolk's very own Millicent Fawcett in Parliament Square.

However, it is not just in Westminster that celebrations are taking place. The UK Parliament's Vote 100 programme is helping groups from all over the country to hold EqualiTeas. Running between 18th June-2nd July EqualiTeas are a chance for any group anywhere in the country to come together to share, debate and celebrate women's right to vote, over a cup of tea and a slice of cake.

Therese said: "I am writing to all the WI groups in Suffolk Coastal to urge them to take part. I can think of no-one better than the Women's Institute, with its unique role in expanding opportunities for women and who also recently celebrated its centenary, to help mark this historic event."

"All you have to do is register at https://equaliteas.org.uk/ and they will send you a host pack with all the information you need to run an event, large or small. If you do decide to take part I would be delighted to hear about your plans."
