Huntingdon MP Jonathan Djanogly paid a visit to Crosshall School, in Eaton Ford, this morning (Friday) to talk about his job.

Mr Djanogly spoke to a group of 20 pupils who were keen to know more about his typical day and even where he bought his shoes.

The school runs a Future Me programme, set up by headteacher Anne Eardley, which features talks and presentations from local business leaders, members of the community and parents.

“The children asked some very searching questions, such as what is happening to the Elizabeth line, what do you do in a typical day and where do you buy your shoes.” said Mrs Eardley.

“The children were particularly taken with his tie, which they found out was bought by his wife. The buddy politicians were excited to hear about life in the House of Commons, the importance of voting and what taxes are used for and they thanked Mr Djanogly for giving up his time to talk to them.”

The Future Me programme encourages pupils to think about what their Future Me looks like, including what career they want to pursue and what qualifications or training is required to achieve their dream, and what skills they should focus on.
