Saturday 17 October – Bring back Sunday mail collections!

I had to get some material into the post today. Up here in the sticks the final Saturday collection - alright the only collection – is at 11:15 am, and it’s not unusual for it to be collected early. Right, I thought, I’m campaigning in Corby Hill later, so why not dash into Carlisle and post them there, perhaps it’s a bit later in town? It certainly is,  2:45pm to be precise! Until quite recently there was a Sunday collection up here, which was brilliant. Times have changed and the postal staff are due to go on strike later this week, which doesn’t seem to be the best way to get middle England on your side.

Never mind, I had a productive time campaigning in the three Corby villages, and I even found a parking place in central Carlisle on a Saturday. Rugby was cancelled (the 4th cancellation this season!), though I was grateful, it’s been a long week!
