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.
Great evening out in Bath collecting for two local charities for The Rotary of Bath. Voices is a local charity for women who have suffered domestic violence and Reminiscence Learning links junior schools and care homes. Two fantastic charities.
Delighted to support the Campaign to Protect Rural England starry skies initiative launched this evening at the Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution. One of a number of initiatives to link our city and rural communities.
Up at Mulberry Park Fox Hill, with my father this morning. Sitting on the spot where his office used to be when he was posted to the Fox Hill MOD site with the Royal Navy when I first came to Bath. Looks a bit different now!
