Great reception in Twerton

Despite the weather our team had a fabulous afternoon up in Twerton. From the small business owner delighted with our business strategy to the entrepreneur celebrating his new van, to families, young people, older people, we found support all over the ward.

Lambridge

Out in Lambridge first today - meeting people up to the constituency boundary. We were told we were the first canvassers they’d met for years! I don’t think many get over to that side of Bath. We got a warm friendly reception with lots of conservative supporters.

Conservatives help business

After a great day out yesterday talking to our retailers around Bath here's summary of what Conservatives are doing to support our small and medium sized businesses. I will support our businesses and high streets in Bath.

Final Saturday of the campaign

Started the day in the office helping to sort out teams getting the last of our first three leaflets out. Rather more environmentally friendly that the avalanche of leaflets being printed by one of the other parties in this election. You may have noticed, even the postmen are complaining now.

Community Resilience Team

The Community Resilience Team's great first night on river patrol in Bath two years ago today. It was CRT's first joint deployment with Serve On, SARAID International and the Fire Service. Since then CRT is still going strong and moving onto missing person search.

Hustings at Stratton House

You never know what will come up during hustings. At Stratton House Care Home this afternoon I stayed to chat to the residents after the hustings and I got to meet their guinea pigs! This was one of the best hustings, some of our older residents find it hard to get out; so we came to them.

Climate hustings

Thank you to the organisers of the Bath Climate Hustings today for running such an energetic and positive event, demonstrating how much we can achieve if we collaborate. I am proud that the UK and the Conservative Party are leading the world in our response to climate change.

Age UK hustings

At the Age UK hustings this lunchtime. I am attending every hustings to which I've been invited. I so enjoy debating with people in the real world!

Christmas Market opens

It's getting Chrismassy! Exploring Bath Christmas Market shopping and chatting. Our market is different from others with many local artisans and independent businesses. The crowds are a seasonal "thing" for some but they create a joyful atmosphere.
