At one point over 65 volunteers were working together in the function room at The Bull in East Farleigh.
|One long standing helper clasped my hand and said, |
"all these people working together reminds me of the old days, we felt we made a difference then."
Thank you to all who came to help from all five Associations, in particular to those who came from T&M, TW and C&A to help their new West Kent colleagues. Thank you to John and Brenda Wislon for organising the venue and lunch for the helpers. To South East Region EU candidate Richard Robinson for making the time to drive from Sussex to Maidstone for a 9.30am start, on the basis that if he cannot ask people to work for him if he doesn't reciprocate. He's a good man and I am sorry he isn't higher on the list. And, of course, to Jon Botten, who worked countless hours with John Balcombe, Allan Sullivan and Owen & Christine Baldock to ensure over 150,000 pieces of paper were printed, mail merged and folded in time.
|Richard Robinson thanks the crowd for their support.|
