Bagpipes in Chatham!
Back in Chatham this afternoon for a meal to celebrate the success of Conservatives across Medway in the recent local elections. Restaurant owner Peter Jenkins kindly allowed us to take over his establishment and as the last one in walked me to my table playing the bagpipes! Everyone was clapping in time and I followed behind with not a Scottish bone in my body unsure precisely if I was supposed to be walking or dancing a reel! It was a wonderfully unusually way of being shown to your seat in a Chinese restaurant!! Everyone was in good spirits, and so they should have been - their hard work paid off and today was a way of celebrating their success - plus the food was delicious. An excellent Sunday afternoon by all accounts.
