Dan regularly meets with young people and teachers in Suffolk and it was a real pleasure for him to visit Grundisburgh Primary School last week as part of a busy schedule of local visits. Since Dan was elected as your MP for Central Suffolk and North Ipswich, he has visited most of the schools in his constituency and always enjoy meeting with teachers, governors and pupils.
Dan was given a tour of the school by Headteacher John Lynch, and stopped to speak to some of the teachers as he was shown round the various classes.

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