Friday 24 October – Final day on the road

The day ends at 8 pm, rather later than I had planned, with canvassing around Wigton and Caldbeck. In the last 10 days I’ve met 218 potential voters on the doorstep, though not all of them are able to devote 5 hours of their Sunday to the Primary – and I don’t blame them. I’ve also been to 3 Eden Council meetings, 2 neighbourhood forum meetings, 3 parish council meetings, 1 theatre production and 2 coffee mornings. And 5 days by-election campaigning in Penrith West too. I am – as you can imagine – somewhat exhausted and already looking forward to it all being over.

Earlier on Friday I was in Brampton, Carlisle, Penrith, Temple Sowerby, Appleby, Penrith again and then off to Wigton. On my final visit to Penrith I picked up an early edition of the Herald – there’s a big piece on the candidates on page 4, complete with photos. My picture┬ástands out somewhat because it’s obviously outdoors and I am wearing a rugby top. The others look a bit more professional. Not sure whether this is good or bad, but there again probably most people won’t notice it. My write-up is good, I am happy with that.

Rugby tomorrow, away to Alnwick, so a bit of a trek. We’re struggling for numbers at the moment, 11 confirmed, but let’s see what comes up.

Time for bed, said Zebedee.
