Local MP Daniel Zeichner has urged the people of Cambridge to get behind Cherry Hinton Hall Park and cast their votes to crown it “Best Park” in the Fields in Trust annual award. Daniel Zeichner joined Cllr Robert Dryden and local residents on Saturday 5 November at 10.30am at the Cherry Hinton Hall.

The attractive park set among mature trees has been shortlisted for the award. Best known for hosting the Cambridge Folk Festival, the park is well-loved all year round and boasts a natural area containing a lake, paddling pools, an aerial runway, and a free-to-use tennis court and table tennis tables.

Daniel Zeichner MP said: “Please vote for our local park. Let’s get a tree-mendous victory! I love walking round our local green spaces. Our parks are the green lungs of the city where people of all ages can walk, talk, run, play or sit.” 

Fields in Trust Chief Executive Helen Griffiths said: "Parks and open spaces are arguably the most universal of all public services. They are used by the entire community from pre-school children through to retired adults - our nation's parks and green spaces are places to enjoy life experiences, whether that’s reaching a personal sporting milestone, teaching grandchildren to cycle, engaging with nature, having a first kiss or simply walking a much loved dog.” 

People can cast their votes at http://www.fieldsintrust.org/bestpark/eastofengland before 9 November.

In the Commons Cambridge MP Daniel Zeichner questioned the Secretary of State for International Trade on getting the best possible deal for life sciences sector. Mr Zeichner asked the minister Liam Fox if he agreed with industry leaders that Britain needs to be a part of a European wide regulatory system?

Mr Fox stocked the Chamber with his one word response: “No”.

Daniel Zeichner MP said: “I’m stunned. The Life Sciences sector is one of the most highly regulated and harmonised sectors in the world. The system works for the UK and Cambridge with EU life sciences regulation fostering cross-border collaboration in research and allowing UK science access to the EU market. The result is jobs, and quicker access to new medicines for patients.

Mr Fox’s plan not to align our industry with the rest of Europe will add unnecessary red tape to the life sciences sector. I know he was unwilling to listen to evidence during the referendum campaign but now it is high time for him to wake up and smell the coffee. He needs to listen to what industry experts are saying and do right by Britain.”
