After the horrific terrorist attack at the Manchester Arena on Monday campaigning for the general election resumed in a low key way locally this afternoon.
Yesterday evening I joined the Vigil at Whitehead Gardens in front of Bury Town Hall. There was a huge turnout. It was a somber and moving occasion. Civic and faith leaders led the service. The grieving mother of murdered local schoolgirl Olivia Campbell, a pupil at Tottington High School made an impassioned speech. We must never let these murderous terrorists divide our society.
