Crawley MP Pays Tribute to Ifield Community Youth Services in Parliament

Monday, September 3rd, 2012

Henry Smith MP earlier today paid tribute to Ifield Community Youth Services on the floor of the House of Commons.

Commenting afterwards, Henry said:

“I was pleased to secure the opportunity to pay tribute to Ifield Community Youth Services for the broad range of provision they offer. Voluntary sector involvement in youth services allows for greater opportunities for local young people.

“In particular, I have extended my sincere thanks to Chris Cook at ICYS for his vision and hard work. Chris, together with all of ICYS’s staff, work tirelessly to support and grow our town’s youth in a safe and friendly environment. The services that they offer are crucial to so many local young people and help equip them for challenges in later life.

“There are a significant number of inspiring young people with the ambition and enthusiasm to make a difference in their communities. It’s important to improve adults’ perceptions of young people and create greater confidence amongst young people that their contribution and achievements are recognised. The ICYS seeks to achieve precisely this and in many ways provides a voice to Crawley’s local youth.”

Make sure you can vote on 5th May

Make sure you can vote on 5th May

With borough elections and a UK-wide referendum taking place on Thursday 5th May, Crawley Borough Council is urging voters to make sure they are registered to vote in time.

The deadline to register is Thursday 14th April. It only takes a few minutes to register. Either call Electoral Services on 01293 438346 or print off the form from

Twelve seats on Crawley Borough Council are up for grabs in the borough elections.

This year there are elections in every council ward except Broadfield North, Broadfield South and West Green. This is because the council is elected in thirds, which means that the council holds elections in three years out of four, with a few different wards not having an election each year.

Elections are your chance to influence the way your town is run. It’s your democratic right to vote for the candidates of your choice. But only those who are on the electoral register by 14th April will be able to vote.

The deadline to apply for a postal or proxy vote is also 14th April.

Everyone who is entitled to vote in the elections will receive a polling card three or four weeks before. This gives details of where your polling station is and your poll number but you don’t have to take it to the polling station with you.

The Electoral Commission, the independent elections watchdog, will send a booklet to every household in the UK with information about how to have your say on 5th May.

The referendum is on the voting system used for elections to the UK Parliament. The question being put to voters on Thursday May 5 is: “At present, the UK uses the ’first past the post’ system to elect MPs to the House of Commons. Should the ‘alternative vote’ system be used instead?”

For more information call Andrew Oakley, Electoral Services Manager, on 01293 438346 or email or visit



Crawley MP Keeps Blood Pressure In Check With Help Of Pharmacy Professionals

Crawley MP Keeps Blood Pressure In Check With Help Of Pharmacy Professionals

Henry Smith saw first hand the role community pharmacy plays in delivering expert public health services with a free blood pressure check at the House of Commons recently.

The event, attended by over 40 MPs and Lords, was organised by leading community pharmacy chain Lloydspharmacy, in partnership with British Heart Foundation, and aimed to raise awareness of the importance of regularly monitoring your blood pressure.

One in three adults in the UK has high blood pressure and many people aren’t aware they have the condition, which means they are increasing the chance of becoming seriously ill if they continue with an unhealthy lifestyle. Often dubbed ‘the silent killer’, high blood pressure can have no symptoms until it has become extremely severe. Left unchecked it can lead to a stroke or heart attack. If left untreated it can also damage other organs such as kidneys and eyes.

Henry said of the initiative: “People are working harder, longer hours and are living more stressful lives. We know that the public are taking unnecessary risks by failing to get their blood pressure checked and it’s commendable that Lloydspharmacy offers such a vital health screening and lifestyle advisory service. Pharmacists have a significant role to play addressing public health issues in the community. I hope this encourages local residents to follow suit and take advantage of the convenient health services which are available in their local pharmacy.”

Ronan Brett, Lloydspharmacy’s head of professional and external relations commented: “We are delighted that Henry Smith was able to attend the event to hear about how community pharmacy is leading the way in providing accessible health services to the public in their local communities.  At Lloydspharmacy we have been championing public health initiatives in our pharmacy consultation rooms since 2003 and have conducted millions of tests, from blood pressure to diabetes. These and the many other pharmacy services we offer help support the public in managing their own health and wellbeing. Our work can allow other health professionals to focus on more acute conditions and something as simple as a quick blood pressure check can stop someone from developing a serious health problem in the first place.”

Crawley MP Gives Support To Peace One Day

Monday, February 7th, 2011

Henry Smith MP has given his support to the non-profit organisation, Peace One Day, and the UN International Day of Peace.

At a presentation at the House of Commons last week, Henry said, “I’m thrilled to be supporting this extraordinary movement. Peace One Day has come such a long way in a very short space of time, and I am confident that their future plans will prove successful.”

Henry also had the opportunity to discuss the issue with internationally acclaimed actor, Jude Law, who is an ambassador for the campaign and Jeremy Gilley, who founded Peace One Day in 1999. In 2001, the United Nations unanimously adopted the first ever day of global ceasefire and non-violence on 21st September, now known as Peace Day.

Peace One Day plan to hold events as part of the Cultural Olympiad in 2012. Henry continued, “It’s now up to us to take it forward and I invite all the people of Crawley to work with me to make Peace Day on 21st September a really fantastic and meaningful event in 2012 and every year.”

Crawley MP Honours the “Untold Stories” of The Holocaust By Signing Book of Commitment

Crawley MP Honours the “Untold Stories” of The Holocaust By Signing Book of Commitment

Today Henry Smith MP pledged his commitment to Holocaust Memorial Day by signing a Book of Commitment in the House of Commons to honour those who perished in the Holocaust.

With 27th January marking the 66th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration and extermination camp, Auschwitz-Birkenau, the Holocaust Educational Trust placed a Book of Commitment in the House of Commons to give MPs the opportunity to remember those who were persecuted and murdered during the Holocaust. This is to support the sharing and safeguarding of ‘Untold Stories’, including learning from survivors’ experiences to help create a future free from hatred and prejudice.

In doing so, Henry paid tribute to those remarkable individuals who survived the appalling events of the Holocaust and have since dedicated their lives to educating younger generations about the dangers of allowing persecution and intolerance to take hold in society.

Henry explained, “In the tenth year of its commemoration in the UK, Holocaust Memorial Day 2011 marks the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau. As prejudice is still present in elements of our society, learning from the extraordinary ‘Untold Stories’ of those who survived gives us the opportunity to reflect on the evil that was perpetrated during the Holocaust and other genocides and to inspire a brighter future.”

On and around Holocaust Memorial Day, schools, local communities and faith groups from across the UK will join together to mark Holocaust Memorial Day. Thousands of events are being held across the country to commemorate all those who suffered at the hands of the Nazis during the Holocaust and in subsequent genocides. The aim of the day is to motivate people – individually and collectively, to ensure that the horrendous crimes, racism and victimisation committed during the Holocaust are neither forgotten nor repeated.

Karen Pollock, Chief Executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust said, “We are delighted that Mr Smith is supporting Holocaust Memorial Day. As the number of survivors dwindles, remembering the Holocaust and passing on their testimony is more crucial than ever. Reflecting on these ‘Untold Stories’ helps give back voices to those who were persecuted and reinforces the contemporary lessons that can be learnt from this dark period in our history.”
