Jason again visited the Newsholme Food Group in Oakes, Huddersfield. The family run company employs 230 local people supplying meat products to the UK and overseas. They have recently invested in a product development kitchen which coincides with a new contract with Greggs. http://www.countryparkfoods.co.uk/
Jason was pleased to open the Google Juice Bar event at the 3M Buckley Innovation Centre in Huddersfield. Over 70 local businesses got tips and support on how to use the web to “squeeze every last drop” out of their business opportunities. The session was held as part of the Superfast West Yorkshire business support programme.

Jason spent the morning at Burton Safes in Brockholes. Burton Safes are the leading supplier of commercial and homes safes.
They are growing their business, expanding their export market and have just taken on a new member of staff. The company are a partner of Huddersfield Town and Jason is pictured with Director Ben Lewis in front of a special edition safe.
Jason spent another busy weekend out in the community he loves and where he lives. On Friday evening he met local residents and members of Hepworth FC to discuss plans for their new clubhouse and changing facilities. First thing on Saturday was the official opening of the new Meltham Post Office in the newly refurbished Carlile Institute, which was followed by the launch of a photographic exhibition in Honley Parish Rooms focussing on the village’s Great War heroes. A canvassing session in Upperthong again highlighted local residents’ fury with our Labour run council’s obsession with building on greenfields. Jason then cheered on Huddersfield Town at home to Middlesbrough and caught up fellow Town fan Andrew Gale – the Yorkshire skipper had the County Championship trophy with him.
In the evening Jason was honoured to compere a wonderful musical “Last Night of the Proms” at Holmfirth Civic for Holme Valley Memorial Hospital League of Friends. The 200 plus audience were entertained by the Hade Edge Band and the Honley Ladies Choir.
On Sunday Jason was a guest at the 141st annual Longwood Sing where the Golcar Band, the Outlane Singers and the children of Crow Lane School performed.
Jason is the Co-Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Carbon Monoxide Group and has pledged his support for Gas Safety Week which starts on Monday 15th September.
Jason is urging people to sign up to a free reminder service at www.StayGasSafe.co.uk, and use the interactive gas map to see how many unsafe gas appliances are lurking in an area.

Jason spent a sunny Sunday afternoon at Sands in Holmfirth for the Wartime Weekend. The weekend was organised as part of the 100 year Anniversary of World War One.
Following the parade and memorial service the Holme Valley was treated to a fly past by the last two airworthy Lancaster Bombers. Jason would like to say a big thank you to everybody who helped organise the successful weekend.
