Pursuing the election campaign with four candidates and three further canvassers all at work at once whilst freezing in Eaton Socon. Home for lunch and there all afternoon working on the third leaflet of the election campaign, which Percy had set up for printing early the following week.
After tea, Derek and Sandie Giles came round and we worked on the canvas cards and the leaflet together and then I wrote up my journal whilst watching the Holyfield vs Foreman world heavy weight fight on TV. The weather was freezing this morning with frost overnight and then it was actually hailing and snowing in flurries later
A hard day today as I had the Eaton Socon election to run. It started with a fairly early trip to my office to prepare a briefing for the candidates and canvassers. I was at Stratford Place with fifteen minutes to spare and prepared my presentation which was a summary of the canvass results so far, followed by guidance and instructions for canvassing and then a discussion afterwards. Then all out to a canvas session and we managed to get quite a lot done with four candidates and three further canvassers all at work at once. I went out with Judi for a while who was back canvassing after some time away with her personal problems. I then went on to Kings Road on my own and visited a few households there.

The weather was freezing this morning with frost overnight and then it was actually hailing and snowing in flurries later on which broke up proceedings a little. I was lucky to have some sheltered old peoples flats in my road and cut across to them during the worst of the weather. Home for lunch and then I stayed at home this afternoon to start the third leaflet of the election campaign. Percy had set up arrangements for the printing early next week if I could get the copy done. After tea, Derek and Sandie Giles came round and we worked on the canvas cards and the leaflet together and we worked on quite late in the end. After this I went into the lounge with the portable and typed up this day's journal whilst watching a TV recording of the Holyfield vs Foreman world heavy weight fight which was quite exciting as the 42-year-old Foreman was the first fighter to go to the finish with Holyfield in his professional career.
