The day I met an MP

Well, the last time I blogged I was showing you all the amazing photographs we had taken from space.

It’s been more than two weeks since my space mission and I have been lucky enough to have a little rest.

But not for long because guess who I met last week? A Member of Parliament!

I met George Eustice the MP for Camborne, Redruth and Hayle.

He came to visit us at Pool Academy.

He had written about our space adventures in his weekly West Briton column last month.

It was such an honour for him to take an interest in us and what we have been up to.

He said he was impressed with our space project and had come to look at some of the images and video footage.

He said: “It was great to have the opportunity to meet Alfie and school mascot Buzz the Bear. I am very impressed by Alfie’s science project, which saw Buzz launched into the atmosphere on a weather balloon. The video footage captured by Buzz is fantastic.”

It was great to meet you too and we’ll let you know about out next adventure…. but not yet…very hush, hush ;)
