Quotes

"As a parent I look at the relationships in the school: will the teachers really know my child as a rounded human being, will she have the encouragement to try new things and follow her enthusiasms? Will she blossom and gain a true sense of self-worth?”"
Johnson has always publicly played down his chances of eventually becoming prime minister, saying they were about as good as those "of finding Elvis on Mars or my being reincarnated as an olive"
Kathryn Noakes from Worldwide Experience said: "This is an incredible opportunity for the team to be able to spend so much time with Dr Fowlds and get to see first-hand what he is doing in the fight against rhino poaching."
"The diversity of projects selected by the judges demonstrates the wide ranging and innovative brick-based solutions Ibstock’s products are delivering both nationally and internationally.  We are looking forward to the final results and are hopeful of further celebrations.”"
