Budget campaign

Stockton weekend and Budget campaigning

I had a really busy weekend in Stockton – including campainging on the excellent budget presented by the Chancellor earlier in the week. I started with the Conyers School Sport Relief mile. 900 pupils ran dressed as their heros (historic, sporting or political!) in what was a great event.

After that I visited the Five Lamps organisation in Thornaby to meet clients and discuss their work, followed by a meeting at Stockton Riverside College with the excellent Phil Cook.
