Allendale canvassing

Allendale - not quite as it was saturday, but there is still a lot of snow on the high ground
Spent the afternoon with Councillor Colin Horncastle [who once again is on the front page of the Hexham Courant]
Sadly the council worked on the basis that we would never have another day of snow - how wrong they were!
In Allendale we canvassed all around the town but particularly Station Road, and everything up the hill, and all around the middle School, before going up to Thornley Gate. Colin has used his members budget to help rebuild the sports hall and improve the drainage outside the Middle School and is known to almost everyone in Allendale. A good afternoon of meeting people. Much upset about Gordon Brown, and where the country is going - and a lot want an election now - I know how they feel!
