We had a good morning in Botley shopping centre this morning, with the combined candidates from Cumnor and North Hinksey & Wytham offering ourselves up to be grilled by the Saturday morning shoppers. We gave out copies of our manifesto, currently being delivered across the Vale by a wonderful group of members and supporters.
We also spent much time promoting the AV campaign as well as answering the inevitable questions about the coalition. There is often not much time to tell people about the 16 years of LD control of the Vale, with the low taxes, high quality services and focus on key issues such as a massive increase in recycling and one of the best records on building affordable housing in the country.
I hope we've managed to convince a few more voters to help us continue our work on the Vale and forgo the needless complaining of some opposition candidates.
