Pride in Northumberland and support for Schools

Spent the day running our Open Mnaifesto event at the Beaumont Hotel in Hexham, where 80 locals came and gave us ideas for the County Council - with key new policies on education, young people, planning, Pride in Northumberland, greater transfer of powers to local parish councils, older people and health, and economic development.

Big support for free schools - particularly the proposed school in Cramlington and all ideas to give Northumberland proper focus.

Also did a few surgeries and now home and with Strictly and the X Factor
Have to say that the girls behind the counter in my local Hexham supermarket are supporting Russell Grant in Strictly.
