Visit by Sandy Martin MP

Sandy Martin is the MP for Ipswich. He is 61 years old and his birthday is 2nd May. It took Sandy 40 years to get a point across that he first announced in his university interview!

Freya asked Sandy the colour of his toothbrush and we were delighted to hear that he couldn’t remember!

Sandy talked about plastic waste and how he wants people to use plastic only when necessary and not for most things. He also said he uses his own cups to save on plastic waste.

Amelia asked whether Ipswich is safe. Sandy said it was very safe compared with some unfortunate places. His idea to solve knife crime is to get more police and support younger children so that they say NO! He believes that knife crime is mainly caused by people from London who deal drugs, reaching younger people in Ipswich.
