Hello. My name is Mark Adams. I am
married and have two daughters who currently attend Thetford Academy.
I am an
having worked on the
Shard of Glass building in London,
I am currently building The Leadenhall Building (The Cheesegrater)
also in the City of London.
We moved to Thetford in 2005 (from our previous
home in North Wales) to be closer to London for my work.
My children walk to school during the week as we
have no other means of transport whilst I am away. An extra
2.5 mile journey
on top of the walk to school to catch a bus is not an economic use
of any childrens' time.
Routine dental/medical appointments,
extra-curricular activities and/or
unexpected injuries during school time will be impossible to cater
for when all of Thetfords children are moved onto one site.
There is no regular transport system between North and South
Thetford. Who will pay
for the taxi? A half day appointment will mean an entire day
We all want a better Thetford, but the
improvements have to be integrated.
Local administrators will only be "in power" for
a few years. Their legacy will live on forever...
This website is maintained and updated in my
spare time whilst also working away from home - please accept my
apologies if your email is not responded to immediately!
