This week has been pretty manic. I was out on Monday campaigning with Sam Clark – the excellent Conservative Candidate for the Roman Bank by-election. I was working in Hertfordshire during the day on Tuesday. Had a branch meeting with Newton & Tydd Conservatives on Tuesday night, then a branch meeting of Wisbech Conservatives on Wednesday night.
Wednesday daytime I had meetings with residents in the morning and in the afternoon a committee meeting with the Leverington Village Hall team. On Thursday I drove to sutton to do some telling in the by-election there. Sorry to see that our candidate lost, he would have been a great Councillor. But the Lib Dem who won, Lorna Dupre, is very nice and I am sure she will work hard. Good to see UKIP make no significant inroads there. When I got home I had to go see a resident on North Brink about a drain pipe that had collapsed. Luckily it didn’t hurt anyone, but I wanted to make sure the owner of the property was going to deal with it promptly – in case there was any more to come down. He assured me he was contacting his insurers immediately.
On Thursday night I ran a fundraising bingo at Leverington Village Hall. It was a great event and completely packed! Raised nearly £400.00 towards the renovations the Village Hall Committee are saving up to make to spruce up the old building and give it a new lease of life!
Today (Friday) I’m in London, but will be rushing back to attend the Mayors-At-Home function, supporting my friend and colleague Samantha Hoy, the Mayor Of Wisbech. Saturday is all taken up with the St. Georges Day event in Wisbech. I’ll be running the free bouncy castle – weather permitting. Come and say “Hello.” On Saturday night I have a booking for a disco in Leverington. Then on Sunday we’ll be out campaigning again. :)
Election periods are invigorating and fun. But they are also knackering. Roll on 8th May. :)
