I have just one more wrapping up session to do in the Millgate Centre tomorrow to help raise funds for the Bury Blind Society. It was really busy today and I understand there was a one hour wait by this afternoon. I knew it was going to be busy today when shoppers started to hand in their presents for wrapping even before we had set up!
This evening Sue and I have been to a Carol concert at Bolton Road Methodist Church with proceeds being divided between the Parkinson’s Disease Society and the Fusilier Court Garden Scheme. It was a very relaxed and enjoyable evening with a large audience despite the very cold weather.
Throw in a flat battery on the car and dealing with various telephone calls and emails and it has been a busy day.
On the political front the main news has been the election of yet another new leader for the Liberal Democrats. No doubt Lib Dem supporters will be hoping this leader lasts a bit longer than the last two! It does not bode well that thousands fewer took part in the ballot than last time when Ming Campbell was elected and if the Leadership candidates can not inspire their own Party members to vote for them what chance have they of inspiring uncomitted voters to support them?
