Yes to get fit and to use all that energy I built up on the campaign, I am taking part in the BHF London to Brighton cycle ride, 54miles of hills and English country side. Started training today. Did 18miles around the Chilterns and went over them 3 times. Lots of work to do.

The End

The results are in and I lost.

I would like to thank all those who helped in my campaign, Rachael, Jon, Andrew, Sherley, Sarah, Mike, Peter, Helen and lots of others. It is disappointing to lose and I am going to take sometime to think about the future. I know that the Blogeratti will be crowing about my defeat. All I can say is that I hope that you are blessed.

Thank you to all those who put their trust in me by voting Labour yesterday.

A Weekend With Communities

Strange weekend, Royal Wedding on Friday, I didn't have an invite and Vaisakhi on Sunday with campaigning and a visit to my own church, Wycliffe, in between.

We are continuing door knocking and are still meeting people who want to vote Labour. It is great to see voters decide that they want a Council that really looks after its residents and that listens to its residents concerns.

Sunday started off with a visit to Wycliffe's early service at 9 O'Clock in the morning. It is a traditional service rather than the normal Wycliffe service. After the service I whipped across Cumberland Road to the Gudwara to take part in the Sikh Community's Vaisakhi celebrations. This is usually a colourful and interesting event. The procession goes up the Wokingham Road, along Church Road, Pitts Lane and back down the A4 to Cumberland Road.

The rest of the day was spent talking to residents in the Ward. This is something I really enjoy, I love listening to residents concerns and trying to help them get the services they need. The campaign continues and am looking forward to Thursday.

So that you can see the pictures I took of the event I have put a link to my Flickr feed of the day.
