Held our first Folkestone election street stall yesterday. Despite the townbeing very quiet (cold and wind keeping people away?) we had several usefulconversations, gave out loads of leaflets and sold four Standards.We received a friendly visit from the Labour Party, requesting we stand downour candidates in favour of those (Labour) who had signed the Momentum'pledge'. After an amicable meeting in which one of our candidatesexplained why we would not be standing down in favour of any othercandidates, the Labour guy left on good terms even offered to exchangedetails of hustings events with us. Distribution of the main election leaflet started in both Folkestone (Kent)and Lewes (Sussex) on Thursday. Much of the 5,500 for Lewes are probablydone by now. Folkestone will take the rest of next week to do 15,000.We also have a poster, which we used on the stall display yesterday and willtry to get some up in windows. I would post a it here if I knew how to do so.
