It was good to hear that the welcome that we gave the Maldives' 2012 Olympic Team as a community is still warmly remembered. They were honoured guests, and it was our pleasure to play our part in a special time by hosting Olympic and Paralympic teams.'

"Dr Faizal and I also discussed sporting and education links between Bedford and the Maldives, as well as issues including the Climate Change emergency."
