Jo Churchill is the member of Parliament for Bury St Edmunds, and is a big supporter of anything that promotes the town. In our chat, we talked about the Photo Bomb, which was a publicity stunt to launch the campagin to get the whole town celebrating St Edmunds Day in November.
The campaign is called “Your Town Needs You”, and was also attended by Terry and Vivienne Clements, Mayor and Mayoress of St Edmundsbury, and Margaret Marks, Deputy Mayor. There were also members of the town council who attended, Andrew Speed the chairmanand representing the Abbeygate Ward, Thomas Murray representing St Olaves Ward, David Nettleton who represents Risbygate Ward and Richard Rout who represents the Westgate Ward.
Chatting to Jo, is always very lively and fun, and we talked about how we should be proud to be from Bury St Edmunds, and we should sing the praises of the wonderful businesses, and restaurants who have a tough job, yet, manage to promote Bury St Edmunds very well.
We also surprised Jo, by letting her know we are planning a Great Bury Bake Off, in which, we would love Jo to be one of the judges.. That’s if she is Ok with me being Paul Hollywood… You have to laugh!
