Spent a pleasant afternoon in Pierremont with one of the canvassing teams. I've been helping out occasionally in Pierremont since the heady days between 1991 and 1995 when a group of highly-committed Labour workers prized loose the Tories' grip on the ward. The effort was led by Barry Swift, the late husband of Cllr. Marian Swift, and he always injected his off-beat humour to the canvassing effort which made it a pleasure to do the hard work.
Barry stressed the team element when canvassing, and none of his zeal has been lost. It was overall a great afternoon.
