A very big thank you to Maltesers for coming to Parliament the other day and getting the nation to #bakeamillion for Comic Relief. All their bakers helped raise a very tasty £1,026,712 this Red Nose Day. I joined it too - that's my rather sad looking cup cake! Or can I call it a fairy cake?
I could call it an artistic photo, or I could admit it's a bit rubbish, but it gives a good picture (as it were) of the exceptional turnout at the 50th Anniversary Dinner of the Frome Lions Club, which Harriet and I hugely enjoyed.
Sincere thanks to the hundred or so souls from Martock, Langport and Somerton who came to Long Sutton Golf Course to question me for two hours. I admire their stamina and resilience. Two hours of my answering questions isn't exactly a walk in the park.
Thank you to Government minister Tobias Ellwood MP - now, and well-deservedly, the Rt Hon - for appearing before the British Council Inquiry into building resilience to radicalisation and extremism which I'm honoured to be chairing.
Thank you to the dozens of people who joined me at the Davis Hall in West Camel to talk about Options 1 & 2 for the route of the A303 through the area. Some very strong opinions and very clear issues were raised. I've quite a shopping list now for HIghways England.
