SSTIE had a team of 6 in Eastbourne on Saturday comprising , Mark H, Heather M and Dick, Charlie, Liz and Magda.. Their task was to deliver leaflets to targeted houses and streets .The group campaigned for somewhere between 3 -5 hours not counting travelling time which is a magnificent effort.
The Lib Dem office in Eastbourne were very welcoming. Our extra help was very important as they were behind with their leafleting campaign because of the recent poor weather They really appreciated the effort our group had made in going to Eastbourne and it undoubtedly gave them a boost.
All in all the Eastbourne experience was very positive and very worthwhile.
Some group experiences :
I met some people in their drives, outside a community centre and a post office and all were very nice and many knew the LD candidate and liked him. There was one elderly couple where the lady declared she had voted remain but since the democratic wish of the people was being ignored she won’t vote at all.
An interesting experience, memorable not least for a massive dog hurling itself like a battering ram against the front door as I stuck my leaflet through his master’s letterbox.
Heather and I also found that most people in Eastbourne really liked the LD candidate.
What else can be done to help Stephen Lloyd ?
Mark points out that Eastbourne LDs are looking for volunteers to telephone canvass this week.
