Foundation visit a big hit with Clegg

Liberal Democrat Leader Nick Clegg MP visiting Headingley Carnegie Stadium

Liberal Democrat Leader Nick Clegg MP visited Headingley Carnegie Stadium and met with children from Valley View Community Primary School and Cardinal Heenan High School as part of his visit.

The children were coached by members of the Leeds Rugby Foundation, and Clegg was joined by local MP Greg Mulholland for the visit to find out about the work done by the Leeds Rugby Foundation.

Commenting on the day Foundation General Manager Chris Rostron said, "We were delighted to welcome Nick and Greg to the stadium. It is a real boost to the Foundation and the work that we are doing in our local community to help support our young people. We are very much part of our community and I am sure that is why Nick Clegg was keen to come and see our work in action."

After taking part in some fun rugby skills games, Nick Clegg answered questions from the schoolchildren on topics as diverse as unemployment, the BNP, bus timetables and Gordon Brown.
