Proud day for The Ross family (and then back to delivering 2,000 leaflets!)
We are now into the full flow of campaigning- I actually enjoy it- the meeting people, delivering all over the town and the camaraderie of a team working together for a cause.
Saturday saw an early start as I have 2,000 Rushmere Rose leaflets to deliver.
The afternoon saw a short break for a very proud moment for the Ross family, my nephew Tom - was in goal for the Suffolk Under 18 Football team that won the FA County Cup against Cambridgeshire at Portman Road. Tom was (not only in my eyes) also the man of the match as he pulled off some fantastic saves to keep Cambridgeshire out.
It was great that the final was at Portman Road as the ashes of both my parents are buried at the ground.
We stayed to see the trophy given then it was home, fish and chips and 2 more hours delivering!
Sunday- saw 6 more hours delivering with just a short break to have a lunchtime pint with other Labour members and then to catch a few overs of Suffolk Cricket's first game against an Essex 2nd XI.
All in all a busy but enjoyable weekend- slightly dampened by seeing Tory leaflets in Rushmere- they have gone for Fib Dem method of the big bar chart- and I believe the usual paid delivery- a shortage of workers in the Tory Party?
