Alan Milburn visits primary school

With all the new coverage of Alan's return to the Cabinet (which I've stopped reporting on, as it was a bit too political and not Darlington-based, but you can always keep up on the latest using Google News), it was nice to see a story in this week's Herald & Post about Alan visiting Alderman Leach Primary School to present them with an award for the work they do collecting litter on their school grounds. As a former primary school teacher, I know what a big thrill it is for the children to have someone "famous" visit their school (I once found a 9 year old boy looking for "the President" to get his autograph when Coun Dixon visited the school); this visit by the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster will have made their day.
