“Respect the water” – That’s the message from Julie Elliott MP during this year’s Drowning Prevention Week which takes place between 18 and 26 June.

Earlier this month, Julie helped promote water safety and Drowning Prevention Week by visiting Sunderland Aquatic Centre with fellow Sunderland MPs Sharon Hodgson and Bridget Phillipson. 

Julie said:

“Fifteen people have drowned in Sunderland since 2010 and others have survived drowning but have suffered life changing injuries.  We are very lucky to have a beautiful coastline and riverside right on our doorstep, however, we must always respect the water because it can and does kill people”.

Julie backs Drowning Prevention Week 2016

“Respect the water” – That’s the message from Julie Elliott MP during this year’s Drowning Prevention Week which takes place between 18 and 26 June.   

Julie visited Southmoor Academy to give a talk to Year 7 pupils on the value of democracy and her experience of our democratic system.  The talk and subsequent discussion was particularly poignant given that it took place less than 24 hours after the shocking murder of Julie’s colleague, Jo Cox MP.

While at the Academy Julie also met with students from other year groups, including the sixth form, which she opened two years ago.  Perhaps unsurprisingly, Julie was asked questions about the forthcoming referendum on our membership of the European Union. 

Julie added:

“It was brilliant to come back to Southmoor and see how the sixth form has grown since it first opened its doors in 2014.  For many students in Year 13 the referendum will be the first time they vote.  It was really pleasing to see so many students taking an interest in the issue as younger generations are going to be disproportionately affected by the outcome of the referendum.”
