(NOT) Alan Milburn: MP for Darlington: (NOT) Alan Milburn: MP for Darlington

Getting ready for Alan's weekly constituency day. (Those of you who don't know, Alan travels to London on a Monday and works in Whitehall and at Downing Street, and then heads North, either Thursday night or Friday morning). This week Alan will be launching the Darlington Town Centre Business Plan on Friday which details the future vision of the town and the pediestrainisation proposals. The launch is at Northgate House at lunchtime if anyone's interested. There's a lot of interest in what will happen with the High Row etc.

Quite a lot going on - he's also launching the council's safety campaign which tests electric blankets for pensioners. This is quite important for old people who may be unsure about the safety of their blankets - we're doing that at the Age Concern headquarters, where they always make us very welcome!

We've got lots of meetings and a busy surgery where people can come and tell Alan their problems, etc, plus an interview with the Northern Echo planned and then it's the Mayor's Ball in the evening. This year's theme is 'Spirit of the Caribbean' cos this year's mayor Roddy Francis hails originally from Trinidad. SHould be a good night.
