Dr Dan welcomes Badingham's Big Ben to Westminster

Just ahead of Parliament returning from summer recess on Monday 4th September, Dr Dan was delighted to greet Ben Newton from Badingham at the end of his epic 200km, 8 hour bike ride from Badingham to Westminster.

Ben, who is 6' 9" tall and just 16 years old, is also known as Big Ben, and he planned the ride to raise money for his Scouting Explorer Belt expedition to Poland in 2018. The Explorer Belt is a challenge of a lifetime. It is a chance to take part in a 10-day expedition that brings a real understanding of a different country, its culture and way of life. Explorers will develop this understanding by travelling through their chosen country, working as part of a small team to complete a series of projects and, most importantly, by meeting local people. It is an experience and an achievement to remember for the rest of their lives. Ben's bike ride was generously supported by, amongst others, Best of Suffolk, the customers of Badingham Community Shop and many other friends and extended family.
