David Cameron at Jack Tizard School, Shepherd's Bush

The Standard reports on a  very moving visit the Prime Minister paid to Jack Tizard school in Shepherd's Bush today. For those of you that dont know it it's opposite the White City Estate on South Africa Road next to QPR. And its a school for children with disabilities of various kinds. And its clearly a very, very special place.

David Cameron's son Ivan, who died last year, went to the school and today the Camerons returned to open a new pool for the children there. I have to say stories like this really do put things in perspective. And though this wasn't the purpose of the story it reminds me just what amazing services and people providing those services we have here in W12.

  1. Yes, it was a great morning. The Camerons also launched The Big Splash charity, of which Mrs Cameron is the patron, to raise money to extend the school’s hydrotherapy pool to disabled children in the local community. Donations can be made via the Jack Tizard website at
