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.
High spirits, dancing and unexpected delicious food at the turning on of the Widcombe lights this evening. Visited the newly opened Bikano's India Restaurant and enjoyed a great evening with people who really know how to have fun.
Canvassing in Fairfield Park this morning which was both fun and friendly. Followed by an afternoon at Bath City FC FA Trophy match against Gosport. We get everywhere in all weathers! Took shelter in the excellent 'Bakers of Bath' where we all enjoyed fab pastries and cake.
Hustings for Bath Chamber of Commerce at the Rec last night. A very effective round table format which led to open discussion. Brexit dominated again with many questions rooted in the ongoing uncertainty which can only end by progressing the deal through its final stages.
After canvassing in Kingsmead with the Metro Mayor Tim Bowles we went on to the Time Out Cafe in the Guildhall Market for lunch and to talk to retailers around Bath. Universal welcome for the extension of the business rate reduction. Also support for the jobs tax cut.
Great event this evening at the University of Bath. Good to see lots of supporters but also thanks to political opponents who turned up, listened and asked good, tough questions. We move forward by discussing and debating.
