At the end of an extremely busy week in Parliament, David Warburton MP for Frome and Somerton, came to All Hallows school to visit some pupils who had written to him. The letters were part of a lesson in letter writing and explored different issues that the pupils felt were relevant locally.

Two letters on littering drew particular interest to Mr Warburton addressing concerns on the environment, danger to wildlife both on land and in the sea, as well as increasing fines for perpetrators and charges for plastic bag use.

Another pupil drew Mr Warburton's attention to the lack of respite care in Somerset, which was of personal concern as her sister has Dravet syndrome (a rare form of childhood epilepsy) and desperately needs respite care nearer to home.

Mr Warburton wrote back to all of the children and then came to see them personally and to chat further on issues raised. It was a great thrill for the children to meet their local MP, especially when politics is so very topical at the moment.

About All Hallows School

All Hallows School is a day and boarding school for boys aged 3 to 13.  In a traditional setting in rural Somerset, the school is mid-way between the cosmopolitan city of Bath and the popular towns of Bruton and Frome. The school is at the leading edge in encouraging creativity and in prioritising the well-being of the children.  The success of this approach is evident with outstanding results across the board and children moving on to their different senior schools, aged 13, well prepared to make the most of the new opportunities which lie ahead.
