Superb morning visit to @StPancrasInt station to meet the teams managing @Eurostar and HS1 rail and station operations. It was great to meet the teams and see the many rail passengers on their way to destinations at home and abroad.
Perfect way to round off #EnglishTourismWeek23 is to say huge congratulations to the fantastic @KandESRailway Chief Stationmaster, Geoff Colvin, who this weekend was announced as the winner of the @VisitEnglandBiz Tourism Superstar Award 2023! Well done Geoff, fully deserved!🏆🚂
It's the final day of #EnglishTourismWeek23. Why not plan a trip to #Bateman's in the lovely village of #Burwash, which was home to Rudyard Kipling for nearly 40 years, followed by a well-earned cuppa at Blacksmiths Tea and Coffee Shop on the High Street? 🫖☕️

This is the picturesque #BredeHighWoods. Home to rare wildlife and a diverse range of habitats, people are free to roam the networks of paths through dense ancient woodland, open grassland, and sandy heaths in the High Weald #AONB 🌳 #EnglishTourismWeek23
Our Friday Coffee Mornings are always a hit! ☕️☕️
Our residents were pleased that @HuwMerriman, MP for #Bexhill & Battle, joined our Friday coffee morning last week. Here they are discussing local matters.
Thank you, Huwfor attending & giving our tenants a forum. #sussex
Today, I welcomed @HuwMerriman, Rail Minister, to see Luton train station for himself.
He saw the lack of step free access to platforms and leaking roofs.
However, I am pleased he confirmed Access for All works to install lifts to each platform will be going ahead this year.
During #EnglishTourismWeek in 2021, I visited award-winning @oastbrook vineyard run by the fantastic America and Nick. If you're interested in learning how they make their innovative wines, a Vineyard Tour & Tasting session is highly recommended🍷👉 oastbrook.com/
I chaired a meeting with Sussex MPs and the Chief Executives of the Environment Agency and Southern Water this afternoon about sewage pollution. There was a real commitment from both organisations to cleaning up our rivers and sea.
