Canvassing in Manor Ward
Campaigning in Manor Ward with Stephen Frost and Matthew Hancock
Yesterday morning I joined our MP Matthew Hancock and Stephen Frost the Conservative Candidate in Manor Ward for the coming Forest Heath District Council elections and spent the day canvassing the good people of Barton Mills and enjoying the sunshine. On the door step it was interesting talking to people about their concerns; funny thing, people really do understand the need to make cuts and everyone I spoke to about the zero council tax rise from both the county and Forest Heath said it was the best news they had all year; the price of fuel was the major concern and I for one share that worry. I did report this back to Matthew that there is a real need to protect people in rural communities such as ours who have no choice but to pay the prices to get to work and access facilities, he agreed and said he would feed that back.
All day I found only one Liberal! Marvellous!
