New MP gets stuck into new role
Newly elected Labour MP for Erith and Thamesmead, Abena Oppong-Asare, jumped right in to her new role, with a series of meetings and visits with community groups and organisations across the constituency in the days following her election.
Abena met with Greenwich’s Nepalese community at the Royal Greenwich Nepalese Society, visited Thamesmead Meridian Football Club and enjoyed carol services at Erith Christ Church and Abbey Wood Christmas Market with local Labour councillors.
She also visited the A&E department at Elizabeth Hospital on Christmas Eve to speak to staff working over the Christmas holiday to look after those in need and show her support to our brilliant NHS and emergency services workers.
Abena is committed to meeting and engaging with groups and organisations from across Erith and Thamesmead in the coming months in order to hear the concerns of local people and faithfully represent you in Parliament.
