Need one after a dismal evening at the City of Manchester Stadium yesterday.

The day starts with a couple of (relatively) routine meetings, the first with the Chief Executive of New East Manchester about a couple of prospective projects there, the second a regular meeting of an Executive Members task and finish sub-group overseeing the merger of the Council's personnel and organisational development functions.

Spent all of yesterday afternoon at SportCity. The first hour was with the Prime Minister who spent some time in the City of Manchester Stadium talking to half a dozen of our rapidly increasing number of apprentices (of which more later).

frank clements Says: 25/02/2010 I wouldn’t want your job thanks,........................ A comment made a couple of weeks ago. It's true that being Council Leader can be quite dispiriting at times but there are far more pluses than minuses.

Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. How do we get more young people to take these subjects at GCSE, A-level, and degree level? One way is to give youngsters a real taste of how exciting these fields are and the sort of career prospects they would have. That is what The Big Bang, the UK Young Scientists and Engineers Fair, currently on at Manchester Central is all about.

Talking about Metrolink and what has become a collection of medium-sized bangs, but with the same endpoint as the original Big Bang, a greatly enlarged network adding Ashton, Rochdale and Oldham Town Centres, Didsbury, Manchester Airport and Wythenshawe to the destinations served.

A busy day yesterday ended with an Innovation Boardroom session in the NoiseLab on Market Street. One of our tasks in the Manchester city-region is to stimulate innovation at every level.

Highlight of Monday was a visit (in my role as the City Council's design champion) to two of our increasingly numerous new schools. The first, Irk Valley Primary, is in my own ward of Crumpsall, although it serves a much wider catchment area, sitting as it does on the Crumpsall, Harpurhey, Cheetham boundary.
