My birthday weekend campaigning in Jedburgh and the Borders

I'm home after a great weekend out campaigning for Michael Moore MP.  The weekend was run from Jedburgh and yesterday was amazing with over 30 people turning up, including people from Liberal Youth Scotland, Jim Hume MSP, Lord Steel and Jeremy Purvis MSP and we ended up delivering far more copies of Michael's latest focus leaflet than expected - more had to be bundled and prepared for Sunday, always a good sign.

I was out delivering with the formidable Elspeth Finlay, and in fact this was our third weekend out togther, the end of January we were in North East Fife, last weekend we were in Edinburgh South and then this weekend the Borders.  Elspeth isn't joining me in Inverness next weekend though.

There is always an unexpected bonus from these campaign days and weekends, this weekend had a few (obviously being with Elspeth is the highlight and promoting Liberal Democracy).

First of all we discovered an amazing bed & breakfast, if you find yourselves in Jedburgh, heading towards Newcastle from Scotland or vice versa and you want to relax in luxury for an evening or two then the Glenacre bed & breakfast is for you.

The customer service was amazing and Tom was on hand throughout the evening from our arrival onwards.  The rooms and decor were stunning, the food was all fresh and great and it was just a great experience, Elspeth, Matthew and I would all definitely recommend it.

Over the course of the weekend a massive part of the Borders, mainly in the East and South was delivered but I went into Jedburgh, Camptown (no jokes please), Selkirk, Melrose and Gattonside.

Here are a selection of photos from my delivering leaflets days in Fife and the Borders.  Below is a picture of Crail Castle, the mince pie ice cream from our day delivering leaflets in Fife, the sunset on my birthday in Selkirk and finally Crail Harbour and the beach.
