Today we had a visit from Councillor John Reynolds and daughter Alice Reynolds – who Mary and I have known since she was born! Mom Gillian Walton was herself a Councillor here in Wednesfield North back in 1990 through to 1994. John and Gill have been friends of ours for decades!
Today we had been out campaigning in Wednesfield North with Mary delivering leaflets here in the sunshine following what seems like weeks of grey cold and damp skies.
Alice made us all perk up a little as we chatted about those early years just after she was born, and of course we reminisced about Gill and the work she had done working with families in the very Ward we were out campaigning in today!
Alice is the sort of person that will help build tomorrows Labour Party. Fantastic with people, enthusiastic, and already showing keen interest in representing hard working families. I have high hopes that Alice will follow in the family footsteps of representing people.
Mary and I spoke warmly about both John and Gill who we had known now for decades. We were delighted that Alice had come to spend a little time with us campaigning here in Wednesfield North.
Currently Alice works in Europe; she is President of the Bruxelles Branch of the GMB Union. How about that for a title!
Both Mary and I were mightily impressed with Alice and we thanked both John and Alice for their contribution to Mary’s campaign to win Wednesfield North again for Labour today.
