Newmarket MP Matthew Hancock went back to school when he visited the town earlier this month.

Mr Hancock is pictured with pupils from All Saints Primary School where he was invited to see the Google Code Club Road Show.

Earlier this year, Google announced a partnership with Raspberry Pi, that would see 15,000 devices given to children across the county. Joanna McGowan of Google said: “ To distribute the devices, we are working with partners including Teach First, Generating Genius, Code Club, OCR, Coder Dojo and Computing at School.

“Google is also working with Code Club which is a nationwide network of free volunteer-led after-school coding clubs for children aged nine to 11, to encourage local schools and community groups to take advantage of the opportunities on offer and to get creative.”
