Mary joined regular vendors at the Durham Outdoor Market on Saturday 24th July to speak to residents about the important issues in the City of Durham.
It was a great opportunity to talk to residents about the work that has been going on throughout the pandemic, but also for local people to tell Mary what they would like to see in the community.
Some of the issues that were raised included:
- Gala Theatre Stage School
- School Buses
- School Issues
- The Durham Fringe Festival
- Mental Health Services
- Empty Shops on the High Street
The Durham Fringe Festival is a 5 day long extravaganza in the heart of the city. For 5 days from the 28th July, the city of Durham will be awash with performers treating residents and visitors to magic, dance, stand-up, an aerial act, two bands, 5 new music showcases, cabaret and great theatre. Check out the Fringe Festival here!
Mary was also joined by County Durham’s Police and Crimes Commissioner, Labour’s Joy Allen, for part of the afternoon to chat with residents about the Safer Communities Campaign that Labour are running throughout this summer. Hear what Labour’s plans are to make our streets safer here.
The Market Stall was a huge success with even people enjoying the city’s Cluedo event in fancy dress stopping by to chat with Mary!
The next Market Stall will be announced soon, in the meantime, Mary will be campaigning throughout the constituency over the summer. Keep your eyes on Mary’s social media to see where she’ll be!
