This has been a quiet week for Keith Council-wise. He has been working on the Guns & Gangs Review report which he will present to Council in April. Otherwise it has been a case of on with the campaign. He has been delivering on average 400 leaflets a day, both for Keely and Sue. There have also be a couple of Flying Squads in the constituency, one in Longbridge & one in Kings Norton..
Sue has again been busy with a series of meetings but also had to fit in a visit to the ROH to see her Consultant. It seems a hip replacement in required but Sue has asked for it to take place after the May elections as she is determined to hold onto her seat and not allow the socialists back in.
On Monday we were the guests of New Frankley in Birmingham Parish Council at their delayed Christmas meal. An enjoyable evening was had by all but we all enjoy working with them as they have the well-being of the people of Frankley at heart.
On Tuesday we were at the Kings Norton Ward Supper Club at the Kings Norton Golf Club. There we were able to see a presentation from the West Midlands Air Ambulance and they received a cheque for their efforts.
On Saturday Sue & Keith followed the Flying Squad in Kings Norton by going to Cofton Park for the National Cross Country Trials. This was a great event with about 10.000 people turning up to watch. With plenty of car-parking on the site of the old MG/Rover Foundry there was minimal disruption for local traffic and coaches came from all over the country. The Lord Mayor turned up to present a trophy and we got a photo for you. It was very cold and he had to send for his overcoat. Sue also got a photo with David Moorcroft and met up with one of our daughter's former teachers, Bob Boldero who was doing the commentary.
Later that afternoon we all met up in Billesley to watch Moseley earn a great win over top of the table Bristol.
Next Wednesday we have the Longbridge Ward Committee at Colmers School at 7pm.
Sue will be at Licensing and Adoption whilst Ken will be at the Housing Committee. Plus lots of leafleting of course.
