On Saturday before Remembrance Sunday I held a Question your MP event in the Parish Hall in Tottington. Unfortunately, it clashed with Bury playing at home but it was very difficult for me to come up with a free Saturday afternoon. The idea is that anyone who registers can turn up and let me have their opinion, ask me any questions or just generally have a moan! The Tottington event seemed to go down quite well even those who openly admitted they will never vote Conservative appreciated the fact that I am at least prepared to hold such open events and allow people their say.
On Thursday I attended the funeral of the late Jack Kenneford who was well known for his wide variety of interests in the local Community. He had died on 11th November and it was particularly poignant because I was only able to attend due to the fact that I was back in the Constituency earlier than normal due to me having accepted an invitation to be the guest speaker at Tottington High School’s Celebration of Excellence evening later that day where Jack was Chairman of Governors. Neville Kenyon stepped in to act as Chairman of the event.
The pupils demonstrated their musical talent and the prize winners had their achievement officially recognised.
