David with Matt Crofts Cllr Sheila Magnall - Mayor of Bury and Iona Worthington

Today has been the Save our Souls Fundraising day organised by the Royal National Lifeboat Institution this is their biggest fundraising day of the year. Here in Bury the Ladies Guild were ahead of the game and organised their fundraising event in the form of an afternoon tea at Greenmount Golf Club on Wednesday which I attended.

The Speaker was Matt Crofts from the RNLI who spoke about their expansion into inland rescue and how they were able to respond in the recent flooding in Cockermouth.

Today, I visited the O2 Call Centre again to hear of the progress they are making. Their link up with Tesco Mobile continues to go from strength to strength and they are still the largest single private sector employer in Bury.

An update on Susan’s hand injury – I am pleased to report that although Susan can not use pressure with her hand and thumb it is very much improved.

  1. Dear ‘Man of Bury’.
    I regret I do not understand why on the one hand you claim our leaflets say ‘the same thing on them’ but on the other hand our ‘message is vague and unclear’. Nevertheless. I am grateful that even though you do not intend to vote Conservative you do at least save and study our leaflets!
