MP welcomes investment in local schools

Anne-Marie Trevelyan, MP for Berwick-upon-Tweed, has today welcomed the news that Northumberland County Council has passed its budget, including the approval of millions of pounds worth of investment for Berwick Academy and James Calvert Spence College.

Anne-Marie said "My commitment as MP for Berwick-upon-Tweed has always been to redress decades of imbalance against North Northumberland. That's why I'm so pleased about this fantastic news that  our Conservative Council has heard my campaigning and is now committed to two of England's most northern schools. We managed to get a new school for Alnwick but every child deserves functional and modern buildings to go to school in."
