On Friday 13 January, Dr Dan started off a packed day of visits and appointments by meeting with a group of Suffolk farmers to talk about all manner of topics relating to farming and agriculture and how things may progress as Britain prepares to leave the European Union. At the meeting Dr Dan heard some very positive feedback, along with some concerns and he has since been pleased to raise some of these concerns in Parliament.
During that meeting, Suffolk was blanketed in a very picturesque covering of crisp white snow, so it seemed somewhat apposite that Dr Dan's next visit was to the Suffolk Highways Hub and gritting depot. Aside from the challenge of the falling snow, the Suffolk Highways team were on full alert given the imminent risk of high tides along the Suffolk coast and Dr Dan was very impressed with the professionalism and emergency planning exercises demonstrated by the team. Dr Dan paid credit to the team of experts who work tirelessly around the clock to keep Suffolk's roads clear and safe in challenging weather conditions.
From there, Dr Dan travelled to the BBC's studio in preparation for BBC Politics East, before rounding off the day with another busy Advice Bureau in Kesgave.
