In the morning, Mr Smith went to see the new Sports Campus and met some students.

He said: “It was wonderful to visit the Royal Latin School to see their incredible new Sports Campus and chat to inspirational members of the Student Leadership Team and headteacher David Hudson.

“The Royal Latin is a first-class school and it is always a pleasure to visit and support them.”

In the afternoon, Mr Smith and Buckingham West ward councillor Caroline Cornell met Chris Styles, the owner of Planet Refill, on Buckingham Industrial Estate.

The store aims to reduce plastic and packaging waste by refilling customers’ own containers with household supplies from its six-metre dispenser wall, and to responsibly source local, organic products that won’t damage the planet.
