Paying attention to school funding

I am on my way back from London today after attending the f40 conference. This organisation represents the local authorities who receive the lowest amounts of pupil funding from the Government. Both North Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire fall into this category. The government provides our local schools with millions less than they would get if we received the national average.

Brigg Cancer Ball & Swinefleet Help for Heroes

As usual, it has been fairly crazy of late, so many invites to events and lots of people asking for home visits etc. Thank goodness it's the half term holidays and I'm off school. Today alone, I visited the Epworth Rural Day Centre, made two home visits and printed and arranged the stuffing of a 1000 or so targeted letters to residents on a number of issues.

Humber Bridge Silliness

Arrived back from conference to see some silliness from my Labour opponent regarding the Tory position on the Humber Bridge. It is funny to watch how quickly people who claim to want an 'all party' solution to the Humber Bridge tolls issue suddenly descend into childish politicking.
