Belton Playgroups, Horkstow Church and Goole Canvassing

Yesterday was a very varied and long day with me only getting home for my tea at about 10.30. By tea, I mean a pizza from Pasture Road which was quite good actually as a couple of lads from the Goole ATC saw me in the take-away and popped in to say hello.


The morning started with a visit to the Belwood Play School and the new Belton Mother and Toddler Group in Belton. I spent a lot of time chatting to the two groups, one of which as some challenges ahead.


After that it was back to the office to help organise some canvassing in Goole. I couldn't join the team out as I had some target letters to organise, but the results were very good. As it happens Labour were telephone canvassing in Snaith yesterday so everyone seems to be at it! Somebody from Snaith rang me to say that Labour had rang them and that they had 'gone along' with the Labour canvasser to mess up their records. :)


In the evening I popped along to Horkstow church at the invite of Henry Fell where the Bishop of Lincoln was rededicating the church following a fantastic renovation. I learned a lot about Horkstow from the new history boards in the church. It has a great history and apparently the Percy family once had a Manor House there!


A fun day but of most cheer was a letter I received from a letter who thanked me for attending and actually taking an interest rather than just turning up and asking for a photo, unlike the current MP. That's not the first time I've had that!
