My goodness, I’m glad I signed up for the Tim Collins Email List. Otherwise I’d never have heard about this important event:
CUMBRIAN MP HOSTS COUNTDOWN RECEPTION AT HOUSE OF COMMONS: The Channel 4 quiz programme Countdown celebrated 21 years at a special House of Commons reception hosted by South Lakes MP Tim Collins on Tuesday 13 July. For more on this story, click here.
Sadly, you don’t get much more on the story when you follow the link, just that “Mr Collins, who is also the Shadow Education Secretary, used the reception to explore how the unique Countdown word and number game can be used to promote numeracy and literacy amongst schoolchildren” and that “The South Lakes MP was joined by the show’s hosts Carole Vorderman and Richard Whiteley together with other MPs and guests at the event.” Well, that’s good to know.
