Cutting Ribbons and Kissing Babies

I was honoured to be asked to cut a ribbon and officially open the new conservatory of the Robin Hood pub. Landlords Dave and Jo have worked really hard to turn the conservatory into a modern venue with excellent, locally sourced food. As a team we go regularly to the pub for lunch after a morning’s canvass so it felt great to be standing in front of their regular Friday afternoon punters and welcome them into the new dining area. Their baby boy was there so I got to kiss a baby too!
This morning I joined local councillors and residents in Burham to Bash the Trash. The initiative, which TMBC promotes, has really taken off especially in the villages. I went round the edges of the recreation ground before heading off to join Kent Conservative Future who had come over to help with some canvassing. We had a good team of 20 out in total and finished off in the cafe in Walderslade village for some bacon butties to warm up after. I then popped over to Luton for the Church’s Christmas Fayre. It was nice to see how busy it was – fingers crossed I have guessed the right number of sweeties in the jar!!!
Off shortly to see Santa and the Mayor turn on the Christmas lights in Snodland and then back home to prepare for an evening in of X Factor (Go Stacey) and emails.

Will the Tories be amending the smoking ban so that Dave and Jo can decide whether to allow smoking on THEIR PRIVATE PROPERTY? Or will we be seeing more Big State bullying, regulating, taxing and harassing of small businesses as they struggle to survive during the recession?
