Rain or Shine

'Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.'- Prof. George H. Palmer on the Postman of Cyrus the Great's Royal Road

This phrase was very appropriate today with rain, sun and hail, with freezing temperatures quickly turning to about 15 degrees. So Nottinghamshire CF, led by our beloved quasi American Luc Chignell, decided that today was the best day to do some campaigning for Wollaton West. Sadly the Cllr for the ward Steve Parton had died and there will soon be a by-election. We thus did some leafleting to help the Party in the ward.

Lots of Rain

As we arrived on the first street there was torrential rain. We did 3 houses and then ran to a pub for cover.

But after our pub break we went out and did loads of houses across the ward. We managed to beat another wave of rain and did all the places we wanted to do, right up to the border of Broxtowe. The weather was bad, but we are committed to the cause, like Cyrus the Great.
