New School £30M+ Investment Consultation Event
Please do pop into the Queen Mary Centre tomorrow to support the new school for Wisbech.
The consultation events take place from 3-7pm at the Queen Mary Centre, Queen’s Road, Wisbech. (There is another consultation event for the villages, as shown in the link above.)
It’s really really important that people go along and, hopefully, show their support.
This is a £30M+ investment in the our local education system. A fantastic new secondary school, a fantastic state-of-the-art SEMH school. We have not had this level of incredible investment in a very long time.
Unfortunately, though County Lib Dems were supportive, one or two local Lib Dems seem to be opposing this huge investment. Sadly, they appear to be doing so with little grasp of the facts.
It is VITAL that local people go along, give their views, and hopefully support this massive new project. Our area desperately needs this educational investment, and our neighbours in the villages do too. We must stand together for the children and families who live here.
New Secondary School For Wisbech
Today I spoke before a Committee at County Council as a local member, in support of a new senior school in Wisbech.
The committee unanimously voted to proceed with the plans at the end of the item.
Such good news. Huge investment in Wisbech education now secure. Includes a new Junior school and lots more as well.
Tonight I was invited to a rather special dinner.
Students of Thomas Clarkson Academy who are studying catering prepared a three course meal and served it to parents and guests.
As one of the guests I was treated to a truly exception meal, prepared and served flawlessly. Everybody seemed to enjoy it as much as I did.
The students and staff must be congratulated on the fare, which was as good as any restaurant i’ve eaten in recently. Better than many.
Thank you for inviting me.

School’s Out For Summer
I was doing my DJ bit for the end-of-term party at St. Peter’s School tonight.
Kids were well-behaved as ever and the teachers had created a really nice event to mark the end of the school year.
Some of the youngsters are going on to Senior School now, albeit TCA or further afield – I’d like to wish them all the best. They really are a charming bunch, well looked after by an excellent school. I am sure they will do very well wherever they are heading onto.
