Trip to London -business calls
I was lucky enough to receive and invitation from Lady Cobham ,who is the Chairman of Visit Britain. It was to attend the Houses of Parliament to listen and network with the people involved with The Northern Growth Tourism Project. We arrived early and were treated to a tour of the House and finally arrived on the roof top and had a good view of Big Ben. I felt a bit like Mary Poppins when she danced on the roof with Dick Van Dyke. It was a fascinating time and looking at the street names as we travelled about was like running around the Monopoly board. I was pleasantly surprised as I chatted with taxi drivers to shop keepers how much they knew about Yorkshire and how they had either been or were intending to come.
