Caroline Flint met pupils at Edlington Victoria Primary School this week who were keen grill the Don valley MP on life as an MP.
Said Caroline: “What I love about primary schools is the children ask exactly what is on their mind, so one pupil asked how much jewellery I own. What a brilliant question!"

Caroline said: “I think headteacher Janice Middleton is determined that one of her pupils will be inspired to want to be a future MP. The children seemed impressed that one of Doncaster’s councillors was elected at the age of 23.
“One pupil asked me what I had done to improve Edlington and I was proud to say that I had voted in parliament to provide more money for schools and that the Martinwells health centre and library and the Sir Thomas Wharton Schools were examples of improvements in the village. A lot of, pupils hope to attend Sir Thomas Wharton.
“The one thing that really caught the children’s interest was when I mentioned that I helped out at the Martinwells Lake project. A lot of the pupils had helped the school to plant bulbs around the lake, which is looking better every month.”
