Today I had the pleasure of meeting Malcolm Moss MP, Shadow Minister for Tourism, Arts & Culture. He greatly enjoyed a tour of "The Garage", a local youth arts project funded by the New Deal. The facilities were excellent and the organiser should be so proud of what they have achieved, but the real task is making this valuable resource more used. It is a pity to see it empty so Malcolm and I worked on ways of increasing usage. We then quickly went around The Forum, to see the BBC Studios and the new library facilities. He was very impressed with the way Norfolk is handling itself on that front - so well done Norfolk County Council!
