Dr Dan has been very active in the local community in March, visiting local businesses, schools and charities.
In the last month he met with year 5 and 6 pupils at Palgrave School and was very interested to hear about the excellent work they had done learning about Britain's democracy, tell them about his role as a Member of Parliament and answer the well thought out questions they had prepared.
Dr Dan was also very pleased to attend the 'Suffolk 100', an event supported by the East Anglian Daily Times and the Suffolk Chamber of Commerce celebrating the achievements of the 100 most influential individuals contributing to Suffolk's economy and where business leaders were updated on the factors influencing the direction of the local economy.
In Ipswich Dr Dan was invited to a Gentleman's Breakfast at Whitton Church Hall. The event was very well attended and Dr Dan was pleased to give a short speech congratulating the organisers for putting on such an enjoyable event.
Also Dr Dan attended the Otley Sport Relief Run. He was unfortunately unable to participate in the event itself due to a sport injury but was involved in managing the runners and starting all of the races, which were 1 mile, 3 miles and 6 miles.

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