LETTER: Thanks to Burnley MP Gordon Birtwistle for help

Could I through your letters’ page extend a massive thank you to Gordon Birtwistle MP.

Our daughter Isabel, who is at St Augustine’s RC High School, Billington, was given an assignment to do on standing for Parliament. She needed to do research and put this together to form a quite extensive piece of work.

I suggested going to see Gordon at one of his surgeries, which we did by arrangement with his very helpful office staff. Well, what a pleasant and rewarding experience it was for us all! Gordon gave Isabel so many pointers and information in such a friendly and approachable manner. We gained so much out of the visit and are so grateful that Gordon was able to see us and give us some of his very valuable time. So again thank you Gordon we really appreciated it. Keep up all your good work.
