Received this by email:
It was absolutely my honour to attend. Thank you for inviting me.
It was great to visit the new Helping Hands facility on Algores Way today.
Helping Hands are an organisation who provide help and day centre activities for people with learning difficulties of various kinds.
They have opened a brand new location in Wisbech, which is great news for local people who need this kind of caring support.
The organisation had me cut their red ribbon to officially declare them open and then gave me a tour of the new building, which was very impressive indeed.
WGS Rugby Club Fundraising
I was out today with the WGS Rugby Club to support their fundraising efforts.
I met the lads at Tesco, where the supermarket giant are supporting their efforts.
The lads were there last night and again today and are trying to bike the distance of their American Rugby tour, 385 miles, using the static bikes and rowers.
During all this furious fundraising activity they were also selling American themed cakes!
Later in the year, twenty-five boys from the school’s 5th and 6th Form will play Rugby starting in San Francisco and finishing in Los Angeles. They will act as ambassadors for the school and the game of Rugby.
They are raising money for their chosen charity – Wooden Spoon Rugby – and also towards the Rugby Tour.
School Of Rock
Students and teachers of Thomas Clarkson Academy ….
you ROCKED it tonight.
The School of Rock show was just stunning. The energy, the talent, the enthusiasm, the music, the acting, the whole show was just brilliant from beginning to end.
I wish there was another night of the show so I could go and see it again.
Thank you all. It was awesome.
**Particularly proud of my Son. Who joined the cast as “Billy” five days before the show and had to learn the entire thing in less than a week. Well done Joe. We were super proud.
The Brinks Festival, Colour Run, 2017
The Colour Run is a part of the Brinks Festival.https://www.thebrinksfestival.org/ This morning I joined a huge group of other mad people to run 5K around Wisbech Park in the blazing sun while other people threw paint at us. I seemed to get a LOT of paint, which may have had something to do with the MC shouting: “There’s the Mayor, GET HIM” or words to that effect throughout the event. :) :)
It was enormous fun. The whole thing served as a reminder of how unfit I am :) Well done to everybody else though, I wish I could have kept up with you better! But I did get to the finish line, so that’ll do for now ;) ;)
