We recently heard the sad news that comedy legend Victoria Wood had passed away following a battle with cancer.
Victoria lived in Morecambe in her student days and later returned to the area in later life living in Silverdale. I know she will be greatly missed and my thoughts are with her family as they come to terms with this sad loss.
On the Friday I was privileged to be one of the first to go on the new visitors’ route at Heysham 1 Nuclear power station and officially open the route with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
I was joined on the tour by station director Ian Stewart and Sarah, Emma and Kate from the visitor team. I was impressed by the tour team and the information they had about the station and the science of how it works.
I would encourage anyone with children to contact them on 01524 868451 to arrange a visit. I would also like to thank Ann Marie for organising the visit, as it was great to catch up with Ian Stewart about the industry in general and congratulate the team at Heysham 1 on their life extension.
On Friday I met the Country Land and Business Association who represent rural land owners and have 50 members in the Lune Valley.
We discussed a wide range of issues from unincorporated businesses, rural crime and the extension of the national park to name a few.
The CLA discussed with me some campaigns they have currently been running to keep me up to date on their latest projects.
To commemorate Anzac Day I attended the annual ceremony at Torrisholme cemetery on Saturday afternoon.
As always it is a privilege to take part in a service which remembers those who sacrificed so much. Thank you to the Heysham and Morecambe branch of the British Legion for all of their hard work organising the service.
