I started the day being interviewed for Radio Leeds by Alice Bailey...

Alice wanted to talk to me about our Easter holiday dates for 2011 after concerns were expressed by parents and carers in Menston who live and work between Leeds and Bradford. As always we did try to fix the dates with other local authorities but both Bradford and North Yorkshire were planning different dates so it was impossible to co-ordinate across the region. We recognise and apologise for the problems that the different holiday dates will cause for parents and carers who live and work between Leeds and Bradford but unless the Government takes control over the term dates we will continue to have these problems and challenges. The upside of course is that different holiday dates tends to mean less traffic, cheaper holidays and more staggered attendance at local attractions over a longer period.
