I’m writing this from the Tudor Rose cafe in Oakley, which is a great place to recharge my batteries.
I’ve just finished meeting residents in Farsands and Burleigh Place.
It was another positive morning; the majority of people I met wanted to see a change and would vote for me. Others were naturally reserved and needed more reassurance.
One individual clearly had a problem with the democratic process in the UK generally. He has moved onto my ‘Life’s Too Short’ list.
So if you are reading this and you live in Oakley, Pavenham or Stevington, and you support my campaign, then go out and spread the word with your friends and family. A sense of change is tangible but I still need as many votes as I can to secure a stronger voice for Oakley Ward in Bedford Borough Council.
Last night at Pavenham’s Annual Meeting I heard many examples where the blame for the lack of activity or progress over certain issues was pointed at council officials.
It was a moment of clarity for me.
It was obvious that a link in the chain, between the Parishes and the Borough was not working.
The need for a newly elected Borough Councillor was as clear to me last night than at any time in this campaign.
Vote for change on 7th May.
Vote Ade Clewlow.
