"Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So love the people who treat you right, forget about the ones who don’t and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said that it’d be easy, they just promised it would be worth it."

This morning I caught up with Richard Harker over a cup of coffee...
It was great to see Richard again after he sadly lost his seat at the local elections in May. We had met briefly at Carr Manor High Schools's launch of the Robinson House and we agreed to meet and catch up over coffee. Richard is a governor at Leeds Trinity University College so he is still actively involved in education and learning and still making a difference. I wanted to meet up with Richard to thank him for his leadership and support over the last six great years where Education Leeds on behalf of Leeds City Council, and working in partnership with schools across the city, has transformed outcomes and rebuilt and remodelled a huge amount of the school estate through PfI, BSF and our traditional capital programme. We all owe Richard a debt of gratitude for his knowledge, understanding and experience which helped us create a learning landscape to be proud of here in Leeds.
