On Friday 12th December, Geoffrey Clifton-Brown, MP for the Cotswolds, went to visit Sir William Romney’s School in Tetbury, Gloucestershire to meet their new headmaster, Steve Mackay.

During Geoffrey’s visit Mr Mackay gave a very insightful presentation to his pupils about the UK’s relationship with the new President Elect of the United States and the importance of improving community relations.

This was followed by a question and answer session with Geoffrey and year 8 students who challenged him on a number of current affairs issues. In particular he was bowled a fast ball by one particular student who asked what were the origins of the credit crunch….not the easiest of answers at the present time!

Commenting on his meeting with Mr Mackay, Mr Clifton-Brown said: “I was very pleased to see that despite the short time Mr Mackay has been headmaster here it is very clear that he is already injecting a new dynamism into the school and ensuring that theirs is a bright future”.

Morris Leslie plant hire company rises from losing millions to investing £70m

Perthshire plant hire giant Morris Leslie was hit hard by the Covid 19 pandemic, however the company was struggling before that because of Brexit. Six months before Covid 19 shut down building sites and locked down the UK the company Morris Leslie has already experienced tough times. Uncertainty because of Brexit had already caused building projects to be shut down or paused causing a much lower demand for plant hires and sales. This slowdown had caused an oversupply of construction equipment meaning more competition and so reduced prices. Then Covid 19 hit and the group’s vehicle auctions and Sunday car boot market were shut down.
