During a busy day of local visits, it was a pleasure for Dan to meet with young people at Fressingfield Primary School. He was taken on a tour of the small rural primary school by Headteacher Mark Taylor, before speaking to pupils in the School Council and answering their questions.
Dan is a great supporter of our small rural schools, such as Fressingfield Primary, and has raised his concerns surrounding the challenges they face with Government Ministers on many occasions.
