Dan was delighted to visit Sir Robert Hitcham School, where he presented special mugs featuring the official Diamond Jubilee crest to pupils at an assembly to mark the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s Accession to the throne. The presentation was organised by the Framlingham Business Association, with the mugs sponsored by John and Martin Kelleway, of Lodge Farm, Framlingham. Dan then held a question and answer session with the school’s year 6 pupils, where he spoke about life as your local MP, and the work he has been doing to help deliver faster broadband speeds to rural communities like Framlingham and Saxtead.
Sir Robert Hitcham Primary School was given a glowing Ofsted report in its most recent inspection, and has gone from strength to strength under Head Teacher Helen Picton’s leadership. The pupils were a real credit to their teachers and Dan would like to extend his thanks to Bill Bulstrode of the Framlingham Business Association, along with the other local sponsors, for their generosity in supporting the Jubliee celebrations.
