Dan was recently delighted to be invited to visit Palgrave CEVC Primary School. He always enjoys visiting our schools in Suffolk, and to seeing at first hand all the hard work that the staff and pupils put in. Dan sat in on the morning assembly before hosting a question and answer session with some of the school’s year 5 and 6 pupils, where he spoke about life as our MP, and a range of local issues.
Palgrave Primary school is small rural primary school that has around 40 pupils, catering to ages 5-11. In September 2005 Palgrave became federated with Gislingham Primary School and the Federation of Palgrave and Gislingham Primary Schools has existed since then, sharing staff, expertise and other strategic resources. Dan would like to thank Head teacher Andrew Berry and Kit Wells, Chairman of Governors, for inviting him to the school, along with all the pupils for their thoughtful questions. He very much looks forward to visiting again.

Despite the cost of tickets from Ipswich, reliability and speed of service have not improved over the years....
