It is great news that the Tour of Britain is returning to south Norfolk again this year.

The last time the tour came to our patch in 2011, the streets of Diss were packed and a number of events were organised to take advantage, such as cycling initiatives.

This time the pleasure is Attleborough’s, but also some of the smaller villages like Old Buckenham, Quidenham and East Harling could play host.

It is a real bonus that the Tour is also once again arriving on a Saturday - meaning those in work and school will be able view the event.

And if a few more people get active, a few more people get to see what Attleborough town centre has to offer and a few more pounds ring through the tills, then so much the better.

n South Norfolk is blessed with lots of good performing smaller schools.

There are many examples of excellent leadership and teaching and schools that have distinct identities which are the secret to their success.

Larger schools do not always perform the best.

Norfolk County Council's plans to shore up the future of little rural primaries should not be at the expense of losing the essence of what some of those schools do well.
