Welcome to the March 2016 edition of Sajid Javid MP's newsletter.

Welcome

to the March edition of my e-Newsletter.

Thank you to everyone who came out to my Job's Fair last month- it was a really big success!

Parliament will be holding two of their most-hotly contested competitions- 'Rock the House' and 'Film the House'. See below for information on these- I do hope some of you will get involved!
 

It's important for me to hear your comments, thoughts, and feedback, so please don't hesitate to contact me. 
 
Recent Activity

I would like to welcome the opportunity to invite any local musicians and film-makers to enter Parliament's 'Rock the House' and 'Film the House' competitions. This is an excellent opportunity for Bromsgrove to showcase our local talent. Local musicians and film-makers must send through their material to me (Contact Details on the side). I will nominate one entrant per competition category and they will then be judged by industry experts. The deadline is Sunday 1st May. If you know any talented artists- please do encourage them to apply! I look forward to receiving your applications.
