Early start for a football match against the Press at the Man U training ground then a clean up before a packed day featuring:
Meeting with Association of North East Councils, followed by an NHS fringe meeting. Then off to listen to Jeremy Hunt on Broadband provision and speaking on fuel poverty and energy at another fringe event. Will try and take in the Woodland Trusts event on forestry before a working dinner in a chinese restaurant with various of the key players in the North East including Heidi Mottram, who runs Northumbria Water, and some of the key representatives of the NE NHS. Looking forward to it.
