I attended the Civic Flag raising ceremony outside the Town Hall at 9 am then made my way up (on foot I hasten to add) to he top of Holcombe Hill to join Councillor Theckston from Ramsbottom who has for a number of years been arranging for the Cross of St. George flag to fly from the top of Peel Tower each St.George’s Day. We were later joined by the Mayor and Deputy Mayor. I climbed to the top of the Tower and the view as ever was spectacular.
Then it was back to campaigning and after speaking briefly to the congregation following Friday prayers at a couple of the Mosques in Bury I caught him with a few more phone calls and emails.
In the evening I visited two more of the local Conservative Clubs to have a word with the members and visitors.
