Leading Link - News
The Lodge played host to a very successful ‘Evening with your MP’ event yesterday, which offered young people a real insight into the world of local politics.
Leading Link would like to thank Ian Lavery MP for agreeing to the Q&A session and to the young people who attended – they were incredibly attentive and posed a number of well-structured and researched questions, which were answered by Mr Lavery with honesty, humour and integrity.
We would also like to extend our thanks to the staff of St Benet Biscop Catholic Academy for their
support at yesterday’s event and the Bedlington Neighbourhood Policing Team for helping to ensure
that the school-based session ran smoothly.
