It was a great pleasure to join teachers from The Weald School when they recently accepted the British Council’s prestigious International School Award in recognition of the school's work to "bring the world into the classroom".
Occasionally politics goes through periods of high drama. This week the Commons is sitting into the early hours on the EU Withdrawal Bill and the inevitably tense negotiations on Brexit are ongoing in Brussels.
Last week the Bank of England raised base rates for the first time in 10 years. As so often with economic decisions it is easy to argue whether this is a good or bad decision. Many will do so. Some no doubt will agree with both statements!
Last week in the Commons there was a closing debate on war memorials and I was pleased to be able to refer to the individual plaques being put up on the houses of those who died in the Great War from Crawley Down.
Last week was Quaker Awareness week and I enjoyed visiting the Friends’ Meeting House in Worthing Road. The building dates from 1785 replacing an earlier structure built in 1693 after the law was changed to “tolerate” non-conformist worship.
