Campaigning in Brentford and Isleworth
Yesterday I was out campaigning in Isleworth with fellow CF members and PPC Mary McLeod for Campaign Day 11. Met by Matt Richardson and local Conservatives at Hounslow Central at 10.30am we were sent off into the local pub car park to be sent out in our team for the morning, in what was a well organised and efficient operation by the local Assocation.
During the morning I was looked after by local Councillor, Brad, and went out with fellow CF attendees, Steve from CLWCF, and Nick Bennett. We ended up campaigning on the Frampton Road estate. It is comparative heaven for leafletters, as some of the flats have twelve post boxes outside, so you can do them all in one go - yippee!!!
I was only able to stay for the morning, but still managed to get in 2 1/2 hours of leafletting, and catching up with fellow CFers, and Mark Clarke over a quick lunch. Candidates for the CF election, Charlie Groome and Michael Rock were also there. There was time for a quick photograph. By lunch time there were about 20 CFers there.
The leaflets were campaigning against the further runway proposals at Heathrow, which will really affect the local residents. Additionally Mary was sending a survey to find out what local residents really thought about the issue. Mary is a fantastic candidate and she should be sat there on the green benches after the next election, and it was a real pleasure to campaign for her.
