Big Pete and his band thoroughly enjoyed their visit to Baildon C of E Primary School on 19th April. Speaking later he was extremely complimentary about the children and compared the English education system very favourably with that in the Netherlands. He explained that there is no 'Blues in Schools' programme there at all.
