Spent a good 24 hours canvassing and understanding issues in Bromsgrove followed by the party’s pub quiz.
Out canvassing people are always happy to talk even if it’s just a grumble about politicians (surprisingly didn’t get that many). A couple of observations:
- People with dogs are very chatty and the nicest bunch to speak to.
- Much like I would be if I wasn’t out and about, a large number of people were still in dressing gowns at 12.30 on a Saturday, surprisingly they also seem the most likely to engage in conversation on the doorstep!
At the pub quiz we managed to raise enough money to send a round of literature to half the constituency, so not loads, but for a small local party vital funding. Equally as important was meeting people, especially youngsters (can walk fast and for longer!), who can help in the campaign canvassing and delivering literature.
