At the start of a busy day in the constituency, Dr Dan was delighted to visit Anglia Freight near Eye to celebrate the opening of their new cross dock facility. This innovative new facility enables the company to safely handle goods in all weather conditions, without fear of consignments or staff being affected by adverse weather. Since last visiting, Dr Dan was pleased to see the company expanding and going from strength to strength.
From there, it was on to Laxfield CEVC Primary School where Dr Dan enjoyed meeting pupils and staff, who were keen to tell him all about their project to create their own garden and greenhouse, where enthusiastic pupils have become keen gardeners, growing their own produce and showcasing it at the recent Aldeburgh Food Festival.
Dr Dan then joined staff and residents ahead of their Mad Hatters Tea Party at Mills Meadow Care Home in Framlingham, where he enjoyed touring the home and grounds, meeting the residents and learning of the multitude of activities on offer. Dr Dan was particularly impressed by the close attention paid by staff to making the residents feel at home, included and able to join in activities should they wish.
Finally, Dr Dan finished off the day with another busy Advice Bureau in Kesgrave where he took time to meet with constituents and try to help with their various concerns.
