Poll Day News

Well it has been a busy two days!

Yesterday began with a breakfast at Mickey's Diner, fuelling us for the day ahead delivering letters to our pledges across Ditton, Aylesford, Burham, Eccles and Wouldham. We briefly stopped for lunch before heading back out again, firstly to Snodland and then up to Walderslade. I skipped off for an hour to train the girls in Princes Park before rejoining the team who had finished Blue Bell Hill in my absence. Unfortunately there was a nasty incident involving a dog who bit off the finger of the girlfriend of the Lib Dem candidate. Rather nicely he phoned through to the Council to ask that they warn us of the dog on the particular road so that we didn't get injured as well, for which we are all very grateful. Went for a quick bite to eat with my campaign manager before falling into bed and watching the end of Newsnight.

Up early this morning, although not as early as those who were out telling at 7am. Was out knocking up Wouldham before 11am and then into Ditton and Aylesford before lunch. This afternoon we had a large team out and I seemed to go from polling station to polling station picking up slips, as well as visiting the Committee Rooms in Snodland and West Malling (covering Larkfield and East Malling). It has been a lovely day and I think the weather has helped with turnout although it is difficult to say with so many postal votes how high/low it has been. This evening half the team have been knocking on doors getting the vote out and the other half have been telephoning pledges. The team have just reconvened at HQ and shortly we are all heading off for a fish and chip supper. I am so ready for a battered sausage and chips and hopefully a nice cold beer!

Off to the Count first thing tomorrow so fingers crossed that our hard work as paid off...
