Still busy

As well as uploading the best conference pics to Flickr, I have also been busy with more work.

Yesterday I was in Watford to take pictures of a visit by Nick Clegg and Sal Brinton to a Citizens Advice Bureau in Abbotts Langley. As you will be aware, the Conservative Candidate in Watford recently pleaded guilty to a huge number of acts of criminal damage as part of a smear campiagn against Sal and the local Lib Dems. He was due to be sentenced on Tuesday but the judge deferred the case until mid October as reports were not yet complete.

Despite the problems with the Conservative, Sal's hugely energetic campaign to snatch the seat from Labour's Clare Ward is non-stop.

And today I was helping Adam Symons, our candidate in Torridge and West Devon. Adam was visiting a local day centre for older people in Holsworthy where he enjoyed chatting over lunch with the service users and the volunteers who make the place run smoothly.

After lunch, it was off to see what is left to do in the construction of the Ruby Way, an ambitious plan to create a 70 mile cycle way from Ilfracombe in North Devon to Bude in Cornwall. Adam is a keen cyclist but I think he might have trouble getting along this section! But, if all goes to plan, this particular stretch will start construction in December.
