A pleasant few hours were spent this morning delivering leaflets around the beautiful little Kent village of Newington - as part of our county council election campaign. The weather was sunny, the houses were nice, and it became a pleasurable stroll.
One lady opened her door as I approached.
'What's this?' she said with suspicion.
'A Focus and a newspaper asking you about local issues' said I cheerfully, 'from the Lib Dems.'
'Oh,' she said brightening up. 'We don't get that from the other parties.'
I may have got us a vote there.
We're fortunate in Kent to have many such small villages and leaflet delivering gives you the perfect excuse to explore.
