In the afternoon I am driving down to open the Heritage Open Day event at Ninebanks church, where I will have the chance to meet lots of the locals, discuss the tourism changes brought about by the Coast to Coast Cycle path and, in particular, the Isaac's Tea Trail, and visit Ninebanks church. Please come down if you are about. Later on I have further meetings back in Hexham. If I have the energy I am due to go to a party tomorrow night near Housesteads. Bit worried as it is Fancy Dress, and I will still be looking like an MP on a weekend at 7 oclock!
