Following the news that Clacton’s Marks and Spencer will close, Essex MEP Alex Mayer said:

“This is devastating news for the staff and a blow to Clacton shoppers. M&S is one of the lynch pins of the town centre and a shop people come into town to visit. Going to an out-of-town store just isn’t the same. Why is it always towns like Clacton that feel the pain?”

The Labour MEP added:

“In these uncertain economic times, I would also urge the M&S management to abandon their long-held resistance to recognising Usdaw as the union to represent its staff.”

Ms Mayer met up with budding young techies who benefit from the latest technology, taking part in innovative programmes on offer in management training, social media marketing and cybercrime prevention.

The programmes have received over £100,000 of European funding, and aim to bridge the gap between the skills of young local people and the skills needed to gain employment, starting with 60 local young people over the next 3 months.

Rose Lavin, Chief Executive of TCHC said: “The focus of opening the Digital Technology Centre is to allow local people to develop the technological skills, further their careers and support the local economy and community.”

Ms Mayer added: “It’s a real privilege to launch this innovative centre.

“Digital skills are now more important than ever, and it’s great to see the real tangible benefit of European money here in Watford. It looks like it will be a real success!”

Suffolk Euro MP Alex Mayer launched a new project opening access to museums to young people.

The new project, ‘Golden Ticket’ will get underway at the Museum Of East Anglian Life on Friday 18th May 2018 to coincide with the International Day of Museums and the European Year of Cultural Heritage.

Golden Ticket aims to give every 12-year-old in Mid Suffolk the opportunity to come to the museum, 1,200 young people a year. Young people will have opportunities to try new activities, such as archery to improve their physical and mental well-being.

Ms Mayer MEP added: “I’m pleased to see the Museum of East Anglian Life aiming high for the target of increased participation for young people.

Museum Director, Jenny Cousins, said: “We’re really keen to get more young people to feel that the museum is a place where they are welcome. Taking an interest in new things and dedicating some of your time to creating something positive together with other people has a whole range of benefits."
