Swanage campaign day

Yesterday I went down to Swanage in Dorset to do a bit of campaigning with our South West supporters.  Mike Hobson, our local spokesman, had gathered together half a dozen TPA supporters to help us campaign along the sea-front and the nearby marketplace.

After handing out roughly 500 leaflets we went for a congratulatory pint.  But what more could you ask for than good company, a friendly audience and views like this below:
