Fun in the sun
A great day out in the lovely weather today. Early doors and it was time to pop into the street surgery in Swalwell, which was being held on Milton Road. The Whickham North team hold regular surgeries like this and we got a good reception, with lots of offers of cups of tea! A few people wanted to talk about the issues at the general election so I was pressed into service. I had a lot of feedback that people saw Nick Clegg (or the "fresh one" as one person put it) and liked what they saw. I also spoke to a few people who had been helped by our excellent councillor team for the area.
Then it was off to our office on Whickham front street for a campaign chat. Then it was down the hill for a bit of leafletting followed by canvassing. Then home and a quick read of the papers. Our policies are getting more attention, which is how it should be.
